Trend Micro and NTT DOCOMO partner on 5G security

31 Oct 18

Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has today announced a partnership with NTT DOCOMO to develop a new solution for the demands of the 5G era.

The technical verification of a network security solution, specifically for network function virtualisation and the cloud are underway now.

This solution is built upon the recently announced Trend Micro Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS) on NTT DOCOMO's "docomo 5G open cloud."

The "docomo 5G open cloud" is a 5G technology verification environment provided to business partners for the purpose of creating a new solution in the 5G era.

Trend Micro VNFS is the network security solution that implements network security functions in virtualised environments such as NFV and cloud, and can dynamically apply the necessary security functions for each IoT device.

NTT DOCOMO confirms the effectiveness of the measure using the network security in the 5G environment and the effectiveness of the business that provides the security function as a value-added service.

Specifically, these solutions work together when the Trend Micro VNFS executes on "docomo 5G open cloud." 

Then the security threats hidden in traffic of various services executed on the cloud are visualised, detected, and ultimately blocked by Trend Micro.

This provides a secure 5G environment for users and protects against IoT devices that don't incorporate additional security.

Trend Micro and NTT DOCOMO will promote technical verification with a view to starting to provide a new solution with added security for the 5G era coming in 2020.

 NTT DOCOMO innovation management department senior vice president and general manager Tomoyoshi Oono says that NTT DOCOMO welcomes the announcement.

“Through "docomo 5G open cloud," NTT DOCOMO intends to further strengthen collaboration with partners in various industries and create a new solution in the 5G era.

“We believe that security is an important factor to provide users with safe 5G environment services. Trend Micro VNFS has a very high affinity with "docomo 5G open cloud" such as high-speed large capacity, traffic processing performance required for low delay traffic and flexible security.”
