Gemalto to protect 5G next generation networks from cyber-attacks with Intel® Software Guard Extensions

Innovation delivers robust processor-level cybersecurity solution for new wave of cloud-based networks

Amsterdam
April 17, 2018

Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, today announced, it is bolstering protection against cyber-attacks for the new generation of cloud-based virtualized networks being planned and deployed with Intel® technology.

This new initiative combines the Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) trusted 'enclave'[1], deployed in the company's industry-leading cloud server CPUs, with Gemalto's advanced SafeNet Data Protection On Demand security software services to create a robust processor-level security solution for virtualized networks.

With physical network functions being migrated to the cloud resulting in increased 'attack surfaces' for malicious forces, one of the challenges for the mobile industry is to ensure identity protection, confidentiality and integrity of these newly virtualized network functions. Addressing this, the combined solution secures virtualized networks from core to multi-access edge by ensuring virtual functions and applications residing in network slices are protected and isolated. Preventing confidential data leakage is vital to ensure that new 5G applications, including IoT and critical communications, achieve the highest standards of reliability, safety and privacy.

At the RSA 2018 Conference (April 16th-20th), Intel and Gemalto will be demonstrating in detail how the solution is protecting these new 5G networks. Join us at Intel's booth (North #3435) to learn more.
