Ericsson and Intel to manage security for telecom operators
Ericsson and Intel Security have come together to bring managed security to telecom operators with an aim to make it easier for telecom operators to support their enterprise clients in protecting valuable intellectual property, data, devices, and identities. The partnership brings together Ericsson’s managed services expertise, global delivery capability and network security expertise with Intel® Security’s broad portfolio of consumer and enterprise security solutions.
Telecommunications networks are a critical component of the economic and social infrastructures that we rely upon. From the enterprise perspective, telecom operators will contribute their regulatory compliance expertise, ability to combine communications services with security, and local response capabilities. Initially, intrusion prevention system services, e-mail security and web security solutions will be available.
By supporting networks that connect more than 2.5 billion subscribers and carry more than 40 percent of the world’s mobile traffic, Ericsson is helping to realize a truly Networked Society. Increased connectivity is unlocking massive value for people, business and society, but also exposing us all to new potential risks. Together with Intel Security, Ericsson aims to make it easier for telecom operators to support their enterprise clients in protecting valuable intellectual property, data, devices, and identities.
Intel already providing end to end consumer and enterprise security product portfolio will merge with Ericsson’s telecom expertise. Today, Ericsson is the global leader in telecommunications managed services. Operations for multiple operators are managed through Global Network Operation Centers and a field service organization. Ericsson employs 65,000 services professionals in 180 countries, and provides managed services for networks that serve one billion subscribers worldwide. Increasingly, Ericsson uses its global managed services expertise in market segments other than telecommunications – and IT is one of the company’s focus areas.
