STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN. 2015-02-24, by Nikolas Georgii

Complete solution suite ensures data integrity and security for 4G and LTE networks

Clavister (Nasdaq: CLAV), a leader in high-performance, high-availability network security for the telecom, cloud and enterprise sectors, is demonstrating its next generation mobile network security solution suite on the Artesyn Embedded Technologies stand at Mobile World Congress 2015.

The suite, including Small Cell, LTE Backhaul and GRX Security Gateway, is a complete NFV-based software package providing mobile network operators with a range of solutions to provide robust security to 4G and LTE mobile cores, for network operators.  

The Clavister LTE Backhaul Security solution enables the flexible deployment of IPsec encryption and firewalling at scale to secure mobile data traffic from cell sites to the network core.  The solution also protects small cell stations against being used for unauthorised network access and intrusion addressing the growing need to secure mobile data backhaul between the radio and LTE core networks. 

Clavister’s LTE Small Cell Security solution addresses the need to secure the fast-growing number of small base stations being deployed to address subscribers’ bandwidth needs in public areas. It features next-generation firewalling for packet core security; encryption from the eNode B to small cells, for secure data backhaul; and enables intelligent mobile data offloading to WiFi networks.

The GRX Security Gateway Solution, protects operators’ mobile networks from threats and attacks targeting the GPRS Roaming Exchange (GRX) network, protecting MNOs against costly security incidents such as DoS attacks, privacy intrusions and overbilling attacks; issues that can result in substantial financial losses and damage to both brand and business.

Jim Carlsson, CEO of Clavister said:  “With more operators offering 4G and LTE services it is critical that they embed security into the network to protect mobile networks and data against attack and interception.  As operators expand services available on these networks and they become increasingly central to enhance connectivity and the delivery of smart cities, robust security will be critical in preventing a wide variety of attacks.” 

Clavister is a member of the Intel® Network Builders program (, a cross-industry initiative that enables telcos to build and manage business-critical infrastructures, with lower capital and operating costs. 

In 2015 Clavister has also started work on a number of projects to deliver secure Wi-Fi networks including the Brazil “Smart Cities” initiative, with a focus on securing wireless networks at 1600 locations in the country and with the Swedish Hockey League to provide a secure platform to offer fans value-added in stadium services.
