ALU Adds NFV-Based Malware Protection Solution

Alcatel-Lucent announced that "Motive is to introduce the Motive Security Guardian (powered by Motive Security Labs, formerly Kindsight Security Labs), a virtualized security solution to optimize both the delivery of services as well as the customer experience by protecting service provider’s networks, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and mobile and home devices from malware that can degrade performance, mine information and even steal data minutes.

.. When malware is found on a device, its owner is immediately alerted with step-by-step instructions on how to remove the threat. This intervention can significantly reduce calls to care agents triggered by malware, such as complaints of mobile device batteries draining too quickly; bill shock due to pirated data usage; and unwanted pop-up ads on a laptop.

.. Residing on an operator’s cloud network, it can identify and pinpoint malware on mobile or home devices without having to be installed on them. The solution can be onboarded and managed using Alcatel-Lucent’s CloudBand™ 2.0 NFV platform and can be rapidly scaled up or down to meet market demand".
