5G- the value for businesses and a disruption to cyber security

5G will be a physical transformation and overhaul of our essential networks. It will have an impact on our society and economy in decades to come. 5G networks will enable the connection for billions of new devices, sensors and systems that would intelligently connect to the network based on their time sensitivity and computational needs.

While 5G’s high speeds and connection advantages are revolutionary, the use of 5G creates exciting new possibilities for the business world and its ability to offer services with varying specifications and service level agreements (SLAs) as well as an opportunity to enhance cyber-resilient measures. Artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and the deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) are all facilitated by the powerful foundation network offered by 5G. 5G will assist IT teams in preventing new cyber security challenges allowing them to operate networks on a more secure basis.

With 5G networks being built on software based models, ensuring security from the infrastructure layer to the application layer becomes an essential factor.

Utimaco’s HSM-protected 5G creates a secure operational environment, supporting all relevant 3G, 4G and 5G Subscriber Authentication and Key Agreement (AKA) protocols.
