Trend Micro and NTT DOCOMO Collaborate to Provide New Solution for 5G Era

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trend
Micro Incorporated
(TYO:
4704
; TSE:
4704
), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced a
partnership with NTT DOCOMO to develop a new solution for the demands of
the 5G era. The technical verification of a network security solution,
specifically for network function virtualization and the cloud are
underway now. This solution is built upon the recently announced Trend
Micro Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS) on NTT DOCOMO’s “docomo 5G
open cloud.”

The “docomo 5G open cloud” is a 5G technology verification environment
provided to business partners for the purpose of creating a new solution
in the 5G era. Trend Micro VNFS is the network security solution that
implements network security functions on virtualized environments such
as NFV and cloud, and can dynamically apply the necessary security
functions for each IoT device.

Through this technical verification, Trend Micro confirms the
effectiveness of the product’s security measures in the 5G environment.
NTT DOCOMO confirms the effectiveness of the measure using the network
security in the 5G environment and the effectiveness of the business
that provides the security function as a value-added service.

Specifically, this solution works together when the Trend Micro VNFS
executes on “docomo 5G open cloud.” Then the security threats hidden in
traffic of various services executed on the cloud are visualized,
detected, and ultimately blocked by Trend Micro. This provides a secure
5G environment to users and protects against IoT devices that don’t
incorporate additional security.

Trend Micro and NTT DOCOMO will promote technical verification with a
view to starting to provide a new solution with added security for the
5G era coming in 2020.

environment services. Trend Micro VNFS has a very high affinity with
“docomo 5G open cloud” such as high-speed large capacity, traffic
processing performance required for low delay traffic and flexible
security. We believe that Trend Micro VNFS will be an effective security
solution in the 5G era.
