Dubai, UAE, and Rome, Italy - 26 May 2022
, the global start-up provider of
security solutions and service for the telecoms industry has won the Vendor Innovation
Award at this year’s Telecoms World Middle East Awards.
SecurityGen took home the award
for its new ACE automated breach and attack simulation platform for mobile networks.
SecurityGen was one of nine vendors shortlisted in the “Innovation Award - Vendor”
category at this year’s awards, which took place during the Telecoms World Middle East
conference in Dubai.
The shortlist included submissions from a range of blue-chip players,
scale-ups and start-ups - including Netcracker, Cisco, Syniverse, Arimac Lanka Pvt, Enea
Aptilo, STC Solutions, Zextras, and Evina.
Commenting on this latest award win, SecurityGen co-founder and CEO Amit Nath said,
“The SecurityGen team is thrilled to win this award. We’d like to congratulate our fellow
shortlisted nominees and also thank the judges for recognising, firstly, the hard work that has
gone into creating the new ACE platform: and secondly, its game-changing impact on
securing mobile networks for operators and their subscribers.”
The ACE platform is a telecoms industry first: the first completely automated breach and
attack simulation platform that is purpose-built for securing mobile networks. ACE provides
an automated approach to assess and improve the security posture of mobile operators by
continuously testing the strength of their network defences against hackers, fraudsters and
Nath continued, “As mobile networks become more complex and dynamic, new and serious
security challenges have emerged for operators. Current preventative security measures are
simply not enough to adequately protect networks from malicious external attack. ACE gives
mobile operators the network-wide perspective, expert insight, and research-based
recommendations they need to defend their networks and protect their subscribers
effectively on an ongoing basis.”
Earlier this month, SecurityGen earned second place in the ROCCO Research Vendor
for its ACE offering, which took place at the ROCCO Genesis
conference in Málaga, Spain.
