SimSpace for telecommunications

In our ever-changing digital world, telecommunications companies (telcos) have become more important than ever. This industry supports businesses, consumers, and nation-states by providing the connectivity needed to drive everything from email and messaging to video conferencing, mobile communications, and entire news outlets. Telcos represent a critical component of our infrastructure and are a major target for threat actors.

The criticality and sensitivity of the data handled, as well as the size of the customer base, make this a highly regulated sector. To keep pace with stringent compliance requirements, evolving threats, and technological advancements, telecommunication companies need to have their security teams and tech stacks performing optimally. This requires continuous assessments under realistic conditions.

Make infrastructure more resilient
To avoid data breaches and network downtime, organizations need to continuously train their personnel, and test their defenses. Organizations can leverage a cyber range to give employees hands-on experience, optimize their security stacks, and develop a strategy to recover data and get back online after an attack.
Vector Smart Object (24)
Defend against advanced persistent threats (APTs)
The telco industry is especially vulnerable to nation-state actors, who often target critical infrastructure like telco systems. With the SimSpace Cyber Risk Management Platform, teams can hone their skills against complex and unpredictable attacks in a secure, isolated training environment.
Vector Smart Object (23)
Training for enhanced user behavior-based protection
You are only as secure as your weakest link, and even well-meaning employees can fall prey to user behavior-based attacks such as phishing. SimSpace provides exclusive User Emulation capabilities so you can train your teams to identify malicious and accidental insider threats.
