Global telecom security start-up achieves second place and impresses operators with ACE, its new automated breach and attack platform for mobile networks
SecurityGen, the global start-up provider of security solutions and service for the telecoms industry, has earned second place in the ROCCO Research Vendor Innovators Awards and the plaudits of leading telecom operators for its new ACE automated breach and attack simulation platform for mobile networks.
SecurityGen was one of seven vendors invited to take part in the special “Lion’s Den” event on Tuesday 17 May at the ROCCO Genesis innovation conference organised by independent strategic research, consulting and training firm ROCCO.
The ACE platform is a telecoms industry first: the first completely automated breach and attack simulation platform that is purpose-built for securing mobile networks. ACE provides an automated approach to assess and improve the security posture of mobile operators by continuously testing the strength of their network defences against hackers, fraudsters and other malefactors.
SecurityGen co-founder and Global Head of Operations Paolo Emiliani made a 30-minute presentation on the ACE platform to a judging panel of four “lions” consisting of senior executives from telecom operators – Luc Lamoureux at Reliance Jio, Cameron Dunn at AT&T, and Atim Akeh-Osu at MTN GlobalConnect - plus Stéphanie Fleury, technology entrepreneur and presenter on CNN Brasil.
The ACE platform draws on the vast knowledge and experience of SecurityGen’s core team who have conducted a combined total of more than 300 telecom network security assessments during their careers. Its in-built AI module enables it to constantly learn and enhance its performance by incorporating actual, real-life scenarios and attack vectors that have been identified in the field. And because ACE is available as a cloud-based offering, operators don’t need to install it directly, or reconfigure their network to use it if they opt for this model.
The ROCCO Vendor Innovators Awards showcase innovative ideas, products and solutions in the mobile telecom industry that generate save costs or generate extra revenue for operators, improve operational efficiency and enhance the user experience for subscribers.
