Nokia’s Core Networks portfolio is in full compliance with all security requirements as defined by the GSMA’s biannual Network Equipment Security Assurance Scheme (NESAS) audit.
In contrast to the previous audit, a wider set of Core Networks products were assessed in this most recent audit, including IMS/Voice Core, Subscriber Data Management, Signaling and Policy, Packet Core, Cloud Infrastructure and Security.
The latest audit underscores the high level of standards that go into Nokia product development, security testing, and software life cycle management.
Other Core products that were part of the audit included Shared Data Layer, Nokia Container Services, Network Exposure Function and NetGuard Endpoint Security.
NESAS audits and tests network equipment across the telecommunications industry to ensure it conforms to a security benchmark in addition to the requirements of regulators, governments and mobile operators.
SVP and General Manager of Core Networks, Cloud and Network Services at Nokia, Fran Heeran, said: “This is a reflection of the exceptional work and focus across the teams here at Nokia and the rigorous security standards that underpin our Core Networks portfolio. There are no exceptions when it comes to security. Our customers demand it, and this audit underlines the security quality that the Nokia Core Networks portfolio delivers.”
