“The 5G security solution is a joint-defense solution tailored for private business networks,” he said. “It eliminates the gap between information and communication technologies to achieve end-to-end protection, reducing the burden on security teams and improving overall cost-effectiveness.”

More Effective 5G Cybersecurity

Organizations need to integrate resources to more effectively combat emerging threats in private 5G networks, Trend Micro said. By pre-deploying a security net, CTOne strengthens the digital resilience of vertical application fields. It provides security for landing applications in private 5G network environments, ensuring protection from network to endpoint.

CTOne has already started to incubate its ecosystem of partners and integrators starting in Japan and Taiwan. Collaboration with partners will maximize the advantages of private 5G with comprehensive security solutions.

According to Grand View Research, the global private 5G network market was valued at nearly $1.4 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 49% through 2030.

In addition to private 5G network end-to-end security solutions, CTOne is also developing O-RAN and edge computing security solutions to assist enterprises in mitigating cyber risk when deploying related technologies.

“Safety today doesn’t guarantee safety tomorrow,” Huang said. “While the communications technology market is booming, business operations are facing exposure to more complex risks. CTOne enables enterprises to secure private 5G networks against potential cyberattacks and build a high-quality industrial application ecosystem. In the future, we will collaborate with partners to maximize the advantages of private 5G with comprehensive security solutions.”
