Building trust and security for 6G networks with DPI

Distributed AI, intelligent edge and intelligent RAN are some of 6G’s prime characteristics. Managing 6G security requires deep packet inspection for real-time insights on new and emerging threat patterns arising from vulnerabilities of a new architecture, an expanded network surface and the rapid proliferation of end nodes. With DPI, operators can implement application-aware security policies for high-performant, reliable and trustable 6G networks.

Profinet, DNP3, Modbus and BACnet: Using DPI to decode IIoT traffic

Devil’s Ivy is a chain attack that targets IIoT devices with the aim of infiltrating enterprise networks. Current operational technology (OT) protocols leave IIoT devices vulnerable to such attacks and many other forms of emerging cyber threats. Also, in IIoT, slight lags in the application or cloud performance and minor latencies in last-mile networks can massively impair machines and equipment ground performance. However, these issues can remain undetected for months or even years. DPI tools help in fortifying IIoT networks and securing enterprise production environments

Security Service Edge (SSE) and DPI: Converged security meets advanced traffic awareness

Security Service Edge (SSE) provides a flexible yet scalable solution for implementing fine-grained access control for enterprise applications and for securing them against malicious activity. In a unified, single-pass SSE architecture, deep packet inspection enables a single, yet powerful point for traffic inspection that equips CASB, SWG, FWaaS, DNS, DLP and WAAPaaS with the information necessary to filter traffic effectively, block malicious sites and safeguard valuable enterprise data. Learn more about SSE and how it benefits from DPI in this article.
