Ericsson has launched a new telecoms security product designed to enable automated security orchestration across multiple ICT domains.

The Ericsson Security Manager supports out-of-the-box security for telco cloud operations, physical and virtual networks and digital support solutions, as well as enterprise networking applications.

It is designed to provide real-time, contextual security management using a customizable, adaptive policy engine.

The new product will comprise part of the Ericsson Digital Support System, and will enable customers to set and enforce security policies to protect important assets. It supports continuous monitoring of threats, vulnerabilities and compliance with the capability for automated remediation

“In today's ICT landscape, security is of the utmost importance for organizations across all domains,” Ericsson head of IT and cloud products Anders Lindblad said.

“Ericsson Security Manager leverages our leadership and expertise across a wide array of ICT domains to bring to the market an innovative, adaptive and contextual security automation solution for telecom networks as well as cloud, IoT and enterprises.”

Ericsson plans to showcase the new suite at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona later this month.
