Network security for your perimeter and everything in-between

Communications service providers need to develop and execute a comprehensive, end-to-end security strategy with policies to secure all layers of the network. It is imperative to protect the network and subscribers from things like Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS), trojan horses, botnets, computer worms, adware, spyware, malware threats, and other types of malicious threats.
