Date / Time: Monday, December 10, 2018, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London
sponsored by
Jim Hodges, Principal Analyst – Cloud and Security, Heavy Reading

Lakshmi Kandadai, Director, Product Marketing, Palo Alto Networks

5G promises transformative mobility by offering enhanced mobile broadband experience and enabling industrial digitalization through customer value creation. As service providers rapidly evolve to build out 5G pilot trials and commercialization plans, they are grappling with a different cyber threat landscape that could compromise their networks and subscribers, and significantly impact their 5G business plans.

In this webinar, we will first look at key challenges that service providers face as they embark on their "next evolution" – the journey to 5G. We will then discuss the context-driven security requirements for the 5G evolution, focusing on the importance of enabling a prevention-oriented and highly automated security posture across 5G networks that delivers predictable performance. With 5G business models centered around transformational vertical industry services, we will also discuss how service providers can step up their 5G value proposition and become differentiated secure business enablers.

Topics that will be addressed in this webinar include:

  • Evolving security landscape in the 5G/IoT era
  • Differentiators to 5G adoption
  • What's different about 5G in regards to security?
  • A new approach to securing 5G
