Positive Technologies is a leading global cybersecurity provider for the telecom industry and the first company in the world providing end-to-end cybersecurity solutions for mobile network operators. The company’s mission is to support MNOs in their continuous transformation in the 5G era by helping to create and maintain durable cybersecurity strategies.
Ongoing assessments of telecom environments (more than 60 every year), continuous research, and deep telecom expertise give us truly unique insight into telecom security. We have a full understanding of the security challenges that MNOs face, including the convergence of IT and telecom infrastructure, virtualization, increasing burden of compliance and regulation, ever-changing attacker tactics and techniques, and critical shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
We surpass ordinary vendors by combining the competencies needed to be а trusted cybersecurity advisor for telecom. We deliver our experience and insights in products and offerings such as the 5G Security Program, which builds around the goals and business challenges facing most MNOs. By working together, we help to understand strengths and opportunities for improvement. For MNOs at any stage—transitioning from 4G to 5G, piloting 5G Standalone, or starting a full-scale rollout—Positive Technologies is a knowledgeable cybersecurity advisor that telecom operators can trust.
Solutions and services, backed by research
As part of our commitment to being an industry leader, Positive Technologies employs world-class experts who have demonstrated intelligent leadership, vision, and expertise in telecom security, from the pioneering discovery of SS7 vulnerabilities back in 2014 to industry-leading research into 5G Standalone Core security at the end of 2020.
We have used this expertise to develop cybersecurity products for the unique needs of telecom, including next-generation signaling protection (Telecom Attack Discovery), instant detection and cyberthreat analysis for telecom networks (Telecom Network Attack Discovery), and AI-powered automated security assessments and compliance checks (Artificial Cybersecurity Expert). This approach has earned high rankings from analytic firms including Ovum, Gartner, and Rocco Research, which has recognized Positive Technologies Telecom Attack Discovery, our 5G-ready next generation signaling firewall, as having the highest overall rating among MNOs for two years running.
Positive Technologies is an active member of the GSMA, to which we contribute as one of the few security vendors in the GSMA’s Fraud and Security Group. Positive Technologies researchers often speak at GSMA events, share experience, and participate in shaping industry guidelines. Our researchers also regularly attend and speak at industry events, appear in the press as quoted experts on telecom security, and advise other telecom organizations such as the FCC, ITU, and ENISA.
A global cybersecurity company
Positive Technologies was spun out from the telecom division of Positive Technologies in 2019, as a separate business entity based out of Switzerland and headquartered in the United Kingdom. We operate globally and have provided services in more than 50 countries. We have R&D centers in Europe, as well as offices and representatives in Brazil, France, India, Malaysia, Mexico, and South Korea.
Additionally, we have a large partner portfolio, which has been recently rounded out by iBASIS, the leading provider of communications solutions for operators and digital players worldwide. iBASIS has announced the launch of its managed cloud-based security portfolio for mobile network operators around the globe to deliver cost-effective and immediate threat intelligence in partnership with Positive Technologies.
