5G and IoT Growth – an Expanding Threat Surface

The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT), 5G-enabled connectivity and edge-based service offerings all expose new business opportunities – and new operational challenges – for mobile operators. This expanded service reach and traffic growth comes with greater urgency to protect a much more expansive, ephemeral network perimeter encompassing subscribers, the mobile RAN/core, internal datacenters and service delivery infrastructure and multi-access edge computing (MEC). Mobile networks have become the new Internet on-ramp of choice for millions of users and enterprises. Securing this complex network environment requires scalable, real-time visibility, detection, and mitigation of threats that can impact the performance and availability of mobile consumer services and network infrastructure.
