5G Security: The Essential Key to 5G Fortunes

In this special episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast Daniel Newman and Senior Analyst and Research Director Ron Westfall assess the 5G Security market, examining why 5G security warrants its own special requirements and considerations, what service providers need to do to make 5G security impregnable, the key use cases, the significance of endpoint security, the role of the 5G ecosystem, and why now is the time for action.


In their discussion, Daniel and Ron investigated the reasons why 5G security is of paramount importance to the 5G ecosystem, especially service providers. They discussed:


  • Why 5G security warrants its own separate and special category of mobile security;



  • Assessed the emerging 5G use cases that require E2E security oversight, including the rapid proliferating IoT devices, ultra-low latency, and massive bandwidth increases;


  • Addressed why endpoint security management is of particular importance, due in large part to the fact that the majority of security breaches occur at the endpoints.


  • Discussed the critical role the ecosystem must play in delivering comprehensive 5G security, encompassing a wide range of players, such as cloud service providers, silicon vendors, and infrastructure suppliers, prime examples including AT&T deploying Samsung Galaxy 20 smartphones that use new purpose-designed security chips to strengthen overall security in 5G environments.


Ron shared some interesting customer use case examples and why the time is now for service providers to fortify their 5G security portfolios and marketing messages, as 5G deployments are expanding rapidly even during the uncertainties of global pandemic and unrest.
