NTT DOCOMO and Trend Micro Protect IoT Devices with Cloud-Based Security Services

Providing “DOCOMO Cloud Platform Network Security Service” with Trend Micro VNFS1

Challenges

  • While DOCOMO and its customers begin to switch over to faster 5G networks, an increase in attacks targeting devices and an increase in threats from infected devices is expected.
  • When these customers implement security on their DOCOMO Cloud Platform2, they are required to set their security functions individually, leading to possible vulnerabilities.
 

Solutions

  • In the technical verification of DOCOMO 5G Open Cloud™3, Trend Micro VNFS was found effective as a network security solution for the 5G era.
  • Through Trend Micro VNFS solution, security functions such as “unauthorized access detection” and “block between device and DOCOMO Cloud Platform” were implemented.
  • By enhancing network security on their Cloud Platform, DOCOMO is equipped with long-term security for devices while being able to reduce the cost of security measures for their customers.
