How 4G and 5G networks are vulnerable to Denial-of-Service attacks

Article | March 26, 2020

Mobile operators are racing to upgrade their networks with 5G connectivity while at the same time expanding 4G LTE coverage throughout the world. Though the latest generations of cellular technology offer faster performance and other benefits over their predecessors, they're vulnerable to some of the same security flaws. A report released Thursday by Positive Technologies explains how and why existing 4G and new 5G networks can be hurt by Denial-of-Service (DOS) attacks in particular. For its report "Security Assessment of Diameter Networks 2020," Positive Technologies simulated external attacks against 28 telecom operators in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America during 2018 and 2019. Specifically, the company looked at 4G and 5G networks using Diameter signaling protocol, a method for coordinating data among different Internet Protocol (IP) network elements.

Can 5G make you more vulnerable to cyberattacks?

Article | March 26, 2020

Many enterprises and sectors are unaware of the 5G security vulnerabilities that exist today. Choice IoT says it’s critical for businesses to have a plan for discovering and overcoming them at the outset of a 5G/IoT platform rollout to avoid future cybersecurity disasters. There is a big difference between the promise of 5G low latency, higher bandwidth, and speed for businesses versus the security of 5G. While many are excited about Gartner’s prediction of $4.2 billion being invested in global 5G wireless network infrastructure in 2020, few discuss the business costs of its unheralded security holes.

SD-WAN security: The impact of orchestrated services multiplicity

Article | March 26, 2020

The pace of software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) deployments has experienced strong growth over the past four years. As a result, the SD-WAN has already become a strategic component of many communications service provider (CSP) networks. One reason for SD-WAN growth is that the service richness of SD-WANs continues to evolve, such as with the integration of security services into those deployments. Increasingly, SD-WAN security services are becoming an important differentiator, playing a major role in the managed SD-WAN service provider selection process.

CSP network infrastructure spend expected to see recovery in 2021

Article | March 26, 2020

The total network infrastructure spend is expected to grow in 2021 as we start to see further recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Dynamics related to COVID-19 has spurred increased bandwidth consumption and as a result accelerated the need to provide additional capacity to meet those needs. We expect total network infrastructure spends to trend positively in 2021. As we have previously seen in 2020, CSPs were more cautious in the face of pandemic related challenges and uncertainty. The impact was felt more in the transport and core areas of the network, with operators still spending on access to meet immediate end-user needs. However, as early signs of recovery are more apparent, we expect investment on CAPEX to be in focus again.
