Senseon for telecommunication

Industry challenges

With vast infrastructure, and often millions of customers, telecommunications companies’ offer a multitude of potential entry points for attackers to exploit, a problem that could be exacerbated by the roll-out of 5G. Furthermore, the customer data they hold, not just financial details, but everything from location data to phone call history, can be extremely valuable. Indeed, 30% of telcos report valuable customer data being stolen last year. Worryingly, just one severe breach has the potential to bring down a whole network.  In the last twelve months, 43% of telco organisations suffered from DNS-based malware, with 81% taking three or more days to fix their problems. With reputational, financial, and physical damage accompanying network outages, the industry can be a target for nation-states, terrorists, and hacktivists.

How Senseon helps the telecommunication sector

Senseon distinguishes itself from its competitors by its ability to understand all data traffic and endpoint activity contextually, thus enabling accurate and comprehensive detection of threats. With hackers often embedding themselves inside network equipment, traditional security tools can’t detect their malicious behaviour, allowing them to carry out their intentions unhindered. By utilising network and endpoint monitoring in tandem with Investigator Bots, Senseon’s unique approach - known as  AI Triangulation - is able to detect even the most advanced and subtle threats, no matter how well embedded in the system they are.

 
Cyberattacks are especially serious for telecoms, as these firms handle not only their own data but data for a great many other companies and customers.
