NETSCOUT introduces mobile security for 4G/5G networks

NETSCOUT SYSTEMS has introduced Arbor Sightline Mobile and MobileStream to answer mobile network operators’ (MNO) need for scalable, real-time visibility, detection, and mitigation of threats that can impact the performance and availability of 4G/5G mobile consumer services and network infrastructure.

As experts in carrier-grade service assurance solutions, NETSCOUT continues to expand its Visibility Without Borders platform by combining its best-of-breed mobile network telemetry capabilities with its DDoS protection technology to provide MNOs with a solution to identify and eliminate malicious traffic before it impacts subscribers and the network.

Darren Anstee, Chief Technology Officer for Security at NETSCOUT said, “as consumer mobile traffic continues to grow, and consumers treat mobile and fixed connectivity interchangeably, it’s become essential for MNOs to manage performance and availability threats within their mobile networks just as they do in wireline. Seeing what’s happening inside the mobile network enables detection and ultimately mitigation of inbound, outbound, and cross-bound threats, helping operators best protect their services and customers.”

The new Arbor Sightline Mobile provides MNOs with visibility into their mobile traffic to detect and manage cyberthreats in a scalable way. Arbor Sightline Mobile consumes user and control plane telemetry from NETSCOUT’s MobileStream network monitoring instrumentation. MobileStream uses NETSCOUT’s patented ASI to extract meta-data from 4G/5G traffic as it traverses the mobile core.
