5G is an upgrade to mobile architecture that changes the way computing elements and services operate in order to scale and improve network performance. These upgraded networks rely on virtualization, highly distributed systems, and interworking between remote and local network functions. As upgrades roll out, it leaves networks vulnerable to a new set of threats and safeguarding them requires a multi-faceted approach to cybersecurity.

What Service Providers Need to Know

IoT devices are flooding the market

The rise of connected devices doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, presenting service providers with security challenges that could overwhelm them if they don’t have safeguards in place.

Local breakout

Multiple edge points and types significantly increase exposure to attacks.

New traffic patterns

Mesh, east/west and internal traffic flows can carry attacks from one part of the network to another.

HTTP/2-based signaling

HTTP/2 protocol with JSON replaces Diameter and exposes APIs to wider base 6 of attackers.

Public cloud edge

The shift in some areas of workload to the public cloud introduces new security concerns to service provider networks.

Botnet playground

IoT devices typically have low security measures embedded at endpoints, making them ideal launch points for coordinated malware attacks within and outside networks.

Network slicing

Each slice has its own threat risk that requires per-slice policies and a coherent defense strategy across all slices.
