Until now, deploying a security service on the Docomo Cloud Platform required customers to set up third-party products manually. This new service simplifies the deployment of security onto the Docomo Cloud Platform.
The service is powered by Trend Micro’s Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS), tested in the Docomo 5G Open Cloud in 2018. Trend Micro’s VNFS platform aims to offer service providers intrusion prevention, URL filtering and application control to mitigate threats across their networks. Underlying threat intelligence is also provided by Trend Micro, which analyzes 1.5 billion new threat samples and blocks 250 million threats every 24 hours, Trend Micro said.
