Located in the administrative and political heart of the EU, the Cybersecurity Lab Europe will provide a much wider range of access to the external security verification of ZTE’s products, services and processes, and will facilitate the external cooperation in the security field with stakeholders.
The opening of the lab is another important part of a transparency initiative of ZTE. Under such an initiative, the company has launched two other Cybersecurity labs in Nanjing, China and Rome, Italy in May.

In addition, ZTE will conduct in-depth research of the security field in the lab, in partnerships with industry-leading security organizations. Moreover, the lab will play a significant role of guaranteeing the security of the company’s 5G systems in the 5G era.
