Change is a constant in the worlds of service providers. But it gets more interesting when we look at what’s changing, why, and what it means to service provider operations and their customers.
This story starts with the growing adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technologies. The ability to create and deliver complete portfolios of networking services in software promises unprecedented flexibility and performance at a much lower cost than previous generations of hardware building block-based networking architectures. And in the technology sector, faster/better/cheaper is always a winning value proposition.
Meanwhile, escalating concerns about cybersecurity has emerged as a key decision factor for the customer community. Customers for new generations of SDN and delivered network services have a right to ask, “How secure is it?” The result is that what customers demand quickly develops into key selling points for vendors of both enabling technologies services.

The most security offerings of any vendor for consistent multi-layer protection across multi-cloud environments.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is drawing a variety of customers who want to benefit from the platform’s unique networking, analytics and big data capabilities. Typically multi-branch businesses such as retail chains, insurance companies and healthcare providers are the ones to benefit from these capabilities as they require global networking with low latency to operate POS or branches that are distributed worldwide. Additionally, enterprises who choose to source cloud computing services from multiple providers will often select Google as a second provider due to its good reputation and high performance platform. Effectively we are witnessing that organizations are increasingly facing a multi-cloud reality where their compute infrastructure is spread across multiple public clouds and private datacenters. Despite this reality, security requirements are not changing and organizations are required to adhere to the same level of standards and implement security policies identically across these environments. At the same time, security risks are increasing as the attack surface broadens due to an explosion of infrastructure technologies that are being leveraged by organizations.
All politics aside, the United States Department of Justice on Friday unsealed a judicial indictmentagainst a number of individuals alleged to be from Russia’s intelligence services engaged in activities in 2016.
Stepping outside of the context of this party or that party, and politics as a whole – McAfee’s CTO, Steve Grobman noted, “Attribution is amongst the most complex aspects of cyberwar and the US government is in a unique position to make this attribution assessment. Technical forensics combined with information from trusted intelligence or law enforcement agencies are needed to provide confidence behind identifying actors in an attack or campaign. These indictments clearly show the US has reason to believe Russia interfered with the election process. “

The iPhone and many of the apps designed to live on the device have the ability to track our location. Whenever they set up these apps, however, users get the option to opt in or out of location tracking services. But what happens when a malicious campaign doesn’t give users the option to opt of having their location tracked by cybercriminals? In fact, just this week, it has been discovered that iPhone users may be faced with that very possibility, as a sophisticated mobile malware campaign is gaining access to devices by tricking users into downloading an open-source mobile device management (MDM) software package.
