Trend Micro said that organizations need to integrate resources to combat emerging threats in the private 5G networks field more effectively
Trend Micro has established CTOne, which is a new subsidiary of the company that will focus on advancing 5G network security, the company said in a statement.
The group noted that CTOne is its latest incubation project to launch as a standalone business.
Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro, said: “The 5G network technology has enabled new capabilities and applications requiring new cybersecurity infrastructure. With our foresight and over six years of dedicated research into network technology, we are confident that CTOne will safeguard organizations in all 5G network environments.”
The company also highlighted that organizations need to integrate resources to combat emerging threats in the private 5G networks field more effectively. By pre-deploying a security net, CTOne says it will strengthen the digital resilience of vertical application fields and will also provide security for landing applications in private 5G network environments and achieving comprehensive protection from network to endpoint.
Private 5G networks are usually considered the most secure wireless communications standard. However, with the widely used Open Radio Access (O-RAN) structure, the proliferation of cloud networks, open-source software, and the variety of IoT devices, the 5G environment faces more cyber threats than ever, according to Trend Micro.
“Safety today doesn’t guarantee safety tomorrow. While the communications technology market is booming, business operations are facing exposure to more complex risks. CTOne enables enterprises to secure private 5G networks against potential cyberattacks and build a high-quality industrial application ecosystem. In the future, we will collaborate with partners to maximize the advantages of private 5G with comprehensive security solutions,” said Jason Huang, CEO of CTOne.
In addition to private 5G network end-to-end security solutions, CTOne is also developing O-RAN and edge computing security solutions to assist enterprises in mitigating cyber risk when deploying related technologies.
