Partnership will provide NFV*-based carrier grade security solutions to Mobile Network Operators to protect networks and subscriber data against attacks
Clavister (Nasdaq: CLAV), a leader in high-performance network security, announced it has joined the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem, a program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of solutions for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
By validating and pre-integrating its hardware and software offerings with Wind River Titanium Server, Titanium Cloud ecosystem partner Clavister will optimize its solutions for deployment, accelerating time-to-market for service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) deploying security infrastructure based on NFV. Service providers and TEMs can confidently select Clavister’s products knowing that they are pre-validated with Titanium Server and ready for deployment in live networks.
The partnership is a key component of Clavister’s strategy to deliver NFV carrier grade solutions to MNOs and will provide carrier grade network security for the transition to NFV addressing key business and technology challenges including:
“By using the Wind River Titanium Server, we can now reach the same performance levels with accelerated vSwitch technology that was previously only possible by using virtual network functions. Using Wind River accelerated vSwitch technology allows significantly increased system flexibility compared to using virtual functions,” commented James Byström VP global sales at Clavister. “As a result, the partnership will enable us to deliver accelerated deployments of our NFV security solutions to the MNO market and solidify our position as a market leader in carrier-grade network security.”
“By working with Clavister through the Titanium Cloud ecosystem, we will be able to offer our joint customers a pre-validated carrier grade network security solution that can be quickly provisioned,” said Charlie Ashton, senior director of business development for networking solutions at Wind River. “Our partnership enables the efficient deployment of NFV network security, bringing a huge competitive advantage to service providers.”
