NFV Security Solution from Telco Systems Wins the Gold

By Paula Bernier March 03, 2016

The NFV CyberGuard solution from Telco Systems got the gold in the Best Security Products for Telecommunications category of the Global Excellence Awards.

Telco Systems launched NFV CyberGuard in October. This solution, the company says, addresses security vulnerabilities found in network functions virtualization and software-defined networking environments. It does that by collecting application-level session information and organizing a database of expected network behavior so it can spot anomalies such as advance persistent threats; direct denial of service, flooding, and NFVi attempts, remote access threats, spoofing, and virtual machine attacks.

CyberGuard is made up of network monitoring sensors running on the Telco Systems big data analytics engine, the CloudMetro virtualization platform, and an SDN controller running on the company’s EdgeGenie Orchestrator.

“Security solutions will have an important impact on SDN and NFV deployments in 2016,” said Moshe Shimon, vice president of product management and marketing at Telco Systems. “By running a security solution as a virtualised network function deployed at the network edge, which is the closest location to all endpoints, security efforts can have complete visibility of the entire network and can be applied to the entire infrastructure.”

A report issued a month ago today from IDC suggests that the SDN market will see a compound annual growth rate between 2014 and 2020 of 53.9 percent, reaching a value of nearly $12.5 billion by the end of that timeline.

“Not surprisingly, the value of SDN will accrue increasingly to network virtualization software and to SDN applications, including virtualized network and security services,” said Rohit Mehra, vice president of network infrastructure at IDC. “Large enterprises are now realizing the value of SDN in the data center, but ultimately, they will also recognize its applicability across the WAN to branch offices and to the campus network."
