A white paper from ZTE and Omdia details why comprehensive assurance in security is essential to the entire ecosystem in the 5G era, ranging from IoT devices to 5G networks, from regulations to operations. The truly effective security assurance requires collaboration and coordination of all parties involved, as well as regular assessments, so as to tackle evolving challenges posed by global 5G deployment.
ZTE has been dedicated to researching proactive cybersecurity systems for many years. The white paper points out that ZTE's existing security capabilities, experience, and roadmap have demonstrated a mechanism for collaboration, transparency and openness, in a bid to address the upcoming security risks and challenges in 5G deployment.
In addition, the white paper elaborates that cybersecurity is the highest priority for ZTE's product R&D and service delivery. ZTE has established a comprehensive cybersecurity assurance mechanism in accordance with laws and standards. Meanwhile, ZTE has adopted a series of cybersecurity measures, such as the three lines of defense model, Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT), cybersecurity labs, and security assessments.
In August 2020, ZTE passed GSMA's NESAS audit, demonstrating the security of ZTE's 5G development and lifecycle processes.
