PROBLEM

ADAPTIVEMOBILE SECURITY AND NOVIFLOW MAKE THE INTERNET A SAFER PLACE

With most countries mobile phone penetration now exceeding 100%, mobile networks are more critical than ever as they form a pervasive component of almost every part of our society. The reality of today’s hyper-connected world dictates that mobile network operators have the expertise, competence, and intelligence needed to protect subscribers and fight malicious traffic on mobile networks. Our mutual aim is to protect subscribers and stop cybercriminals who are seeking to exploit mobile networks and to abuse some of the most vulnerable members of our society especially children.

SOLUTION

NOVIFLOW AND ADAPTIVEMOBILE SECURITY DYNAMIC
SECURITY SOLUTION TO SUPPORT INTERNET WATCH FOUNDATION

AdaptiveMobile Security’s award-winning Network Protection Platform (NPP) provides a Web Protection solution enabling operators to deliver fast, policy-based control over the web traffic transiting mobile operator networks. In the case of the MTN’s Child Online Protection Programme, our Web Protection solution not only provides detailed reporting of categories and volume of Child Abuse-related threats affecting the MTN network but also actively blocks malicious URLs that have been blacklisted by the IWF, effectively stopping the spread of child abuse content.

Our partnership with MTN, AdaptiveMobile Security and the IWF builds on our commitment to make the internet safer for children. Online safety is a community challenge and an opportunity for industry, government and civil society to work together to establish safer principles and practices to the benefit of children and broader society

AdaptiverMobile Security’s Network Protection Platform (NPP) leverages NoviFlow’s Cybermapper Security Load Balancer to provide a Web Protection solution that enables operators to deliver fast, policy-based control over the web traffic transiting through mobile networks. Cybermapper delivers optimized load balancing, packet brokering and telemetry acquisition functions without requiring the use of physical taps. CyberMapper empowers network providers to fully leverage the network/cloud edge as an intelligent resource that can pre-process traffic in order to both optimize information flows throughout the network, and make the best possible utilization of all network resources, thus reducing hardware costs, operating expenditures and even energy utilization.

Unlike conventional non-SDN network solutions, NoviFlow’s CyberMapper Security Load Balancer leverages the disaggregation of data and control planes to enable these to scale independently, making for greater overall solution modularity by enabling the redistribution and redeployment of network resources in real-time as networking demand fluctuates and change over time. Our solutions’ programable match-action technology further facilitates the transformation of networks from proprietary and virtualized infrastructure to programmable, cloud-enabled solutions deployed on white-box hardware that can economically meet the capacity needs of today’s networks, and that can be software upgraded to enhance or even change functions as needs evolve.

This adaptive modularity also drives new mechanisms for network optimization: thanks to CyberMapper, network services that are usually delivered at the network’s edge (such as security assets, e.g. DDoS, firewalls, etc) can be pooled together and made accessible from anywhere in the entire network, reducing total service costs by sharing capacity over multiple locations, rather than overprovisioning at each ingress/egress point.

  • Simplifies and reduces costs at the Network/Cloud Edge by consolidating network services such as security assets, (e.g. DDoS, firewalls, etc) and off-loading load-balancing, packet brokering and monitor functions to high-performance white-box SDN switches
  • Enhanced multi-Terabit throughput capabilities at an affordable price point that provides low-cost carrier-grade horizontal scaling of security services and VNFs
  • Dynamic Packet Steering to Active in-line tools, including dynamic whitelist to bypass tool farm and deep inspection inside of encapsulated packets (can Inspect IP headers inside multiple label encapsulation)
  • Proportional Load Balancing to Tool Farm – enhanced Enumerated Load Balancing algorithm to service Tool devices with different throughput capabilities, easily accommodating environments where Tool devices have been added over time and thus vary in capabilities
  • Filter protocol control packets from being sent to tool farms
  • Dynamic Tap/Select Services – the ability to dynamically initiate and manage taps and filter network traffic via SDN
  • Dynamic Load Balancing and non-Destructive Fail-Over Services – Tool Farm dynamic scaling in real-time, and non-destructive fail-over while protecting the stateful information (metadata) about flows as virtualized tools are spun up or down in response to changes in traffic
  • Cluster Activity Dashboard – a web-based dashboard that presents the activity and allocation of the flow Load Balancing to the Tool Farm in real-time
  • Makes Network-Edge cybersecurity solutions less expensive to acquire and operate
  • Provides dynamic scalability of cybersecurity functions and multi-server tool farms into the Terabit range
  • Network solutions that are agile to evolve as requirements change
  • Faster prototyping and rollout of new networking functionality and protocols such as INT
  • No forced obsolesces of networking equipment as it may be reprogrammed and repurposed
  • More choices through the disaggregation of networking hardware and software into white boxes and NoviWare
  • Independent scaling of control plane and data planes as the network grows or to fit different types of networking functionality
  • Less vendor lock-in due to reliance on open protocols and technologies
