Netcracker 2020 Sets the Standard for Telco Industry Data Security

Share

Netcracker Technology announced today its Enhanced Security Plan, a holistic, multi-pronged framework of security solutions and services that are unmatched in the industry. As an integral part of the new Netcracker 2020 portfolio suite of products and services, Netcracker Enhanced Security gives service providers confidence in the security and privacy of their rapidly evolving networks, including 5G and multi-cloud environments, and the sensitive information of their customers.

“We believe the Netcracker Enhanced Security Plan is a model of good security practices,” stated Adam Hickey, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division, U.S. Department of Justice.

As networks become more complex, including increased support for virtualization and IoT, data security and privacy become more critical. Netcracker Enhanced Security capabilities are designed to ensure that the entire lifecycle of developing, delivering, and operating business support system and operations support system platforms is secure. These capabilities include secure development processes, secure integration APIs, control and monitoring of platform access through a secure enclave infrastructure, strict change control policies and strong governance, including strong access control, frequent audits and regular security testing. Most importantly, the Netcracker Enhanced Security Plan controls how and where data is stored and accessed, enables anonymization of sensitive data, and is engineered to prohibit unauthorized access.

This combination of industry-leading technology and security protocols gives service providers around the world confidence that their mission-critical platforms are developed, implemented, and managed in a secure manner by Netcracker, enabling them to build trust with their customers and instill confidence that their sensitive information will be protected.

“Increased cybersecurity is critical as business models and technology change how service providers operate,” said Joel Brenner, former Inspector General of the National Security Agency and Head of U.S. Counterintelligence in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and current Senior Research Fellow at the MIT Center for International Studies. “The telecommunications industry must demand vendors follow strict security protocols to ensure restricted access to their most sensitive data and infrastructure.”

"We are pleased Netcracker has agreed to invest in enhanced security protocols that will reduce the risk of unauthorized access to its clients’ sensitive data,” said Dana Boente, Former Acting United States Attorney General. “As threats to our critical infrastructure increase, especially from abroad, these protocols serve as a model for the kind of security that U.S. critical infrastructure should expect from the firms they use to develop, install and maintain technology in their networks.”

“Netcracker’s Enhanced Security sets the standard for best security practices in the telecommunications industry,” said Samuel Visner, Security Director at Netcracker and former Chief of Signals Intelligence Programs at the U.S. National Security Agency. “Netcracker’s technology enriches the ability of service providers to support their own end users securely, even as more complex networks present us with a more significant cybersecurity challenge.”
