Telecom Network Security Services

"Why worry about telecom network security? Just let the hackers handle it – they're always connected, anyway."
"Why worry about vulnerabilities? Just invite the hackers over for tea and let them point out all the weaknesses for you."

Telecom Network Security Services

Telecom network security services refer to the various measures and technologies that are implemented to protect telecom networks from various types of cyber threats and vulnerabilities. These measures may include firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, network segmentation, and secure protocols for data transmission and access control. Telecom network security services also often include regular testing and assessment of network security to identify and fix vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers. These services are critical for ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of telecom networks and the data and communication services they support.

Statistics on
Telecom Security Services

According to a 2020 report by Positive Technologies, vulnerabilities were found in 100% of the telecom networks tested, with the most common being flaws in GTP protocol implementation and SS7 vulnerabilities.
In 2018, the largest DDoS attack ever recorded occurred, targeting a US telecom provider with a peak traffic volume of 1.7 terabits per second. This highlights the importance of DDoS protection for telecom networks.
A report by Nokia found that cyberattacks on telecom networks have increased by 100% in the past year, with the most common types of attacks being DDoS, phishing, and ransomware.
The use of legacy protocols and equipment in telecom networks can pose security risks, as seen in the 2019 data breach of the UK telecom provider TalkTalk, where attackers were able to exploit vulnerabilities in a legacy web application.
The increasing use of IoT devices in telecom networks has created new security challenges, as these devices can be vulnerable to cyberattacks and can be used as entry points for attackers. In 2020, a botnet called FritzFrog was found to be using SSH brute force attacks to target IoT devices in telecom networks.
In a 2020 survey by F5 Networks, 81% of telecom providers reported that they had experienced an attack on their infrastructure or services in the past year, with the most common being DDoS and DNS attacks.

How do we do
Telecom Network Security Services

digiALERT utilizes a multi-faceted approach to ensure the protection of our clients' communication systems.

First, we conduct thorough assessments of our clients' current security measures to identify any vulnerabilities or weaknesses. This includes reviewing network architecture, identifying potential entry points for attackers, and evaluating the effectiveness of existing security controls.

Next, we implement a variety of security measures to protect against potential threats. This may include firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, encryption, and other technologies to safeguard against unauthorized access, data breaches, and other malicious activities.

We also provide ongoing monitoring and maintenance to ensure that security systems remain up-to-date and effective. This includes regular testing and updates, as well as incident response planning to quickly and effectively address any security breaches that may occur.

Additionally, we offer training and education for clients' employees to promote security best practices and awareness of potential risks. This includes educating employees on safe email practices, identifying and avoiding phishing attempts, and understanding how to identify and report security incidents.


Vulnerability assessment is an important aspect of cybersecurity because it helps organizations identify and address potential vulnerabilities in their systems, networks, and applications. These vulnerabilities can be exploited by cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, disrupt operations, or cause other damage to an organization. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, organizations can reduce the risk of a successful cyber attack and protect their assets and data.

Almost every organization can benefit from vulnerability assessment, regardless of size or industry. This includes small businesses, large corporations, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. All of these types of organizations hold sensitive data or have critical systems and networks that need to be protected.

In addition to protecting against cyber attacks, vulnerability assessment can also help organizations comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards. Many industries, such as healthcare and finance, have strict regulations in place that require organizations to regularly assess and address vulnerabilities in their systems. Failing to do so can result in significant fines and legal consequences.

How often Telecom Network Security Services recommended
When it would be performed

The frequency of vulnerability assessments is typically determined by the organization's risk profile, the criticality of its assets and the rate at which new vulnerabilities are discovered. In general, it is recommended that organizations conduct vulnerability assessments on a regular basis to ensure that their systems and networks are secure and  compliant with industry regulations.

For some organizations, conducting a vulnerability assessment once a year may be sufficient. For others, it may be necessary to conduct assessments more frequently, such as every quarter or even monthly. 

There are several circumstances in which an organization may want to conduct a vulnerability assessment:

  1. When implementing new systems or networks: it is important for an organisation to assess them for vulnerabilities to ensure that they are secure.
  2. After experiencing a cyber attack: it is important to conduct a vulnerability assessment to identify any weaknesses that may have contributed to the attack and to implement measures to prevent future attacks.
  3. When complying with regulatory requirements: Many industries, such as healthcare and finance, have strict regulations in place that require organizations to regularly assess and address vulnerabilities in their systems.
  4. When making significant changes to an organization's infrastructure: such as upgrading software or hardware, it is important to conduct a vulnerability assessment to ensure that these changes have not introduced any new vulnerabilities.
