Bringing together Palo Alto Networks® enterprise-grade 5G Security and Private 5G partner integrations and services allows organisations to easily deploy, manage, and secure networks throughout their entire 5G journey. The launch addresses the need and desire for validated 5G integrations and furthers Palo Alto Networks strategic vision of an integrated, ecosystem approach to safeguard 5G deployments.

Anand Oswal, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Palo Alto Networks, comments: “5G holds boundless potential to revolutionise our future. At the same time deploying these networks is complex and presents significant security risks. True digital transformation requires a robust cross-platform ecosystem where comprehensive solutions and innovative partner integrations ensure strong 5G security. Our best-in-class platforms and strategic coalition of trusted Private 5G partners create a holistic offering to help customers realise the benefits of 5G.”

The speed, reliability, and flexibility of 5G networks are essential to national infrastructure and mission-critical environments; however, the massive amounts of data transmitted across 5G networks provide a target for threat actors seeking to exploit vulnerabilities. C-Level executives agree – in a recent Palo Alto Networks study, almost 70 per cent of executives identified 5G-connected devices as a growing threat vector in operational technology (OT)*. With 5G also expected to contribute $1 trillion to the global economy in 2030**, there is urgency to better protect today’s more complex networks, cloud-native solutions, and distributed environments to facilitate this growth.

Fuelled by a convergence of artificial intelligence (AI), Zero Trust, regulatory, and compliance mandates, Palo Alto Networks 5G Security helps organisations protect themselves against the latest threats, ensuring comprehensive security across evolving network landscapes. Combining industry-leading security solutions with disruptive Private 5G partner technologies and services enables customers to build security into their networks from the ground up, protecting the entire 5G infrastructure and mission-critical traffic it carries.

Palo Alto Networks Private 5G partners are vetted via lab testing and have proven success with customers with Private 5G networks. Initial Private 5G partners include Celona, Druid, Ataya, NETSCOUT, NVIDIA, and NTT DATA.

• Celona, Druid, Ataya: Organisations building new Private 5G networks with these partners can easily secure radio networks through integrations with Palo Alto Networks 5G Security

• NETSCOUT: Pervasive, packet-level network visibility will combine at scale with Palo Alto Networks 5G Security, helping security teams gain deep visibility to make intelligent policy decisions

• NVIDIA: Scalable 5G security ensures that AI-powered applications are optimised for speed, security, traffic accuracy, and data isolation to maintain data sovereignty and achieve multi-terabit, cost-effective security for mobile networks

• NTT DATA: An innovative and complete technology stack, network infrastructure capabilities, and trusted IT consulting and global system integration services help customers quickly and easily deploy, manage, and secure their Private 5G networks
