Ooredoo Myanmar taps Nokia Managed Services for cyber security

Ooredoo Myanmar has selected Nokia to secure its telecom and ICT networks against cyber threats.

Nokia is providing its Managed Security Services to operate and manage all aspects of security. The cyber-attack detection and response capabilities are provided remotely from the Nokia Security Operation Centre.

Security attacks on networks are continuously growing, and there is a steady rise in advanced malware which can no longer be deterred by traditional measures. This creates a pressing need for operators to gain visibility and intelligence on actions both in the external world and within business infrastructures, applications, data and people, to be able to detect security risks and breaches and respond to them.

As part of its holistic service, Nokia first analyses security risks and gaps across various security domains by using its Security Risk Index, then implements suggested performance improvements using the Managed Security Service.  This ensures that the critical information assets are adequately protected against known and unknown threats, and that the operator meets applicable security compliance standards and regulations.

Vikram Sinha, Chief Executive Officer of Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “Our network carries a huge amount of sensitive and personal data that we need to safeguard. We chose Nokia because its holistic Managed Security Services enabled us to assess the security of our network and implement the latest measures to protect against any breaches.”

Friedrich Trawoeger, Head of the Operate & Managed Services unit at Nokia, said: “With the modernisation of networks there are newly emerging risks for security breaches. It is therefore important to encompass all areas of security, including the assessment and protection of cross-technology networks operating in multi-vendor environments.”
