Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is launching its new Security Manager product to automate protection of important assets across multiple ICT domains and to detect threats, vulnerabilities, and risks leveraging real-time security analytics.
5G, cloud and IoT are game-changers for the entire industry, and security is integral to succeeding in these areas. Ericsson takes an overall approach to bring a comprehensive portfolio of security services, products and solutions to address an enormous need on the market. Ericsson has always had the approach to deliver secure products and trusted infrastructure and also manages security for customers within various industry segments.
With increasing security risks in critical network infrastructures and emerging cloud technologies with shared capabilities, as well as increasing regulatory requirements on privacy, data protection and security auditing, there is a growing need for new approaches to manage security and privacy compliance.
Ericsson Security Manager brings to the market an innovative approach for real-time, contextual security management leveraging its customizable, adaptive policy engine, an enabler of cost-efficient, automated security operations. The Ericsson Security Manager is part of the Ericsson Digital Support System to support out-of-the-box security for cloud operations, enterprises, physical and virtual networks and digital support solutions.
The Security Manager will be the tool to set and enforce security policies to protect important assets by configuring security controls such as firewalls or block chain solutions to achieve the desired security architecture and provide predictive analytics to detect unwanted activity. The solution offers automated security orchestration for cloud operations, enterprises, physical and virtual networks and digital support solutions. It also provides the support for automating compliance according to established standards and regulatory requirements.
Anders Lindblad, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit IT & Cloud Products, Ericsson, says: “In today’s ICT landscape, security is of the utmost importance for organizations across all domains. Ericsson Security Manager leverages our leadership and expertise across a wide array of ICT domains to bring to the market an innovative, adaptive and contextual security automation solution for telecom networks as well as cloud, IoT and enterprises.
