Huawei released its 2016 cybersecurity white paper ‘The Global Cyber Security Challenge -- It is time for real progress in addressing supply chain risks’ at the Information Security Forum (ISF) held in Berlin from October 22 to 25.
As a Platinum Sponsor to the summit, Huawei, together with supply chain experts and standards organizations, shared international best practices on supply chain cybersecurity management and the vision to build a securely connected world. Additionally, the company showcased its latest security solutions in Cloud, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) at the event.
The Huawei 2016 cybersecurity white paper reveals the continuous efforts of information and communications technology (ICT) providers across the globe in addressing supply chain security threats and in building end-to-end, reliable cybersecurity systems. It also highlights the significance of supply chain cybersecurity standards and raises the need to foster standards development in hand with governments and industries.
Commenting on the whitepaper and security trends at his keynote during the summit, Mr. Pierre G. Noel, Chief Cyber Security and Privacy Officer of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said, “The construction of security relies on advanced technologies, comprehensive procedures and trust from all parties. It requires collaboration among all players across the ecosystem, including ICT vendors like Huawei, standard organizations and governments,”
“Huawei is committed to building a securely connected world through openness and transparency. Leveraging our extensive experience in the domain, we aim to develop and offer end-to-end cybersecurity management systems that are in compliance with international industry standards and specifications”, continued Noel.
Cloud, Big Data, IoT, and mobility technologies are driving ICT transformation while bringing security challenges to organizations and users. During the forum, Huawei showcased a wide range of solutions designed to address these trends:
Cloud Data Center Security Solution: The solution helps customers effectively address edge, data transmission, and user access security issues when commencing digital transformation. The solution enables intelligent, flexible, and reliable security protection for cloud data center networks and tenants.
IoT Security Solution: Terminals are vulnerable to security threats as they can be easily and remotely accessed and attacked by hackers who might intercept key data and cause damage to organizations’ systems. Huawei’s IoT Security Solution equips each terminal with a unique and trusted ID. It supports real-time IoT vulnerabilities notification and takes immediate security measures when detecting any exception.
Enterprise Mobile Security Solution: The solution provides protection for a wide variety of terminals and takes three-fold measures to eliminate data leaks. A great number of enterprise-level security applications are available in a pay-as-you-go manner.
Big Data Cybersecurity Solution: A traditional network security solution is inefficient in detecting intrusions to modern enterprise networks. To address this issue, Huawei offers a Big Data-based cybersecurity solution that reduces the average intrusion response time to four minutes and improves detection accuracy to 99.95%.
Huawei has been constantly engaged in the formulation of security standards in many telecom standards organizations, such as ITU-T, 3GPP, and IETF. Huawei has also joined security organizations, such as the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), and closely cooperates with mainstream security vendors to enable cybersecurity for global customers.
