Telcos present a complex architectural and infrastructural landscape to secure. From distributed and cloud RAN, Edge and Cloud Core, enterprise and subscriber devices, gateways, hubs, set-top boxes, multi capacity routers, switches, base transceiver stations, femtocells, and 5G edge gateways, there is significant diversity and complexity that telcos are staring at when it comes to cybersecurity.

Since telcos are communication enablers, their infrastructure can easily be tagged as critical infrastructure. This is also the reason why telcos get attacked often as they are on the radar of hacker groups, APT groups and clusters, malicious actors, and malware developers. Telcos can be targeted in two ways. Their infrastructure can be used to launch large-scale attacks on third parties. Or telcos and their infrastructure could themselves be targeted.

The rapid expansion of threat surfaces and digital infrastructure associated with telcos has led to a sudden and rapid increase in the number of threat vectors that are growing in complexity, scale, and sophistication.
