Comprehensive protection of telecommunications against general and specific threats
Money is the lifeblood of the economy, and telecommunications is its nervous system. Complex infrastructure and huge volumes of confidential data increase the risks for telecom providers. However, not only ISPs are susceptible to telecom attacks, but also any enterprises using digital telephone services, starting from an office mini-PBX.
With extensive experience in telecommunications security, H-X experts provide a full range of corporate IT security services starting from audit and security assessment of communication systems and ending with Security Operations Center services (SOC-as-a-Service), taking into account the specifics of the telecom industry.

Telecom providers and vendors build, manage, and maintain complex network infrastructure, which is used for data transfer. Their solutions transmit and store huge volumes of sensitive data that have always been a great lure for attackers. All this makes telecom solutions the target of numerous cyber attacks.
It was the telephone systems that the world’s first hackers hacked into. It would seem that the telecom industry should have had time to defend itself. However, due to the increasing complexity of telecommunication technologies, more and more new vulnerabilities appear in them.
According to PwC Global State of Information Security, IT security incidents in the telecommunications sector have grown by 45% over the last year. Communication providers are facing a difficult task, they now need to learn how to resist various cyber threats:
- SS7 and Diameter Signaling Threats
- SIP Hacking
- DNS Attacks
- Network Attacks on IoT
- DDoS Attacks
- Targeted Attacks
- Unaddressed Software Vulnerabilities
- The Impact of Service Misconfiguration
- other threats
Vendors and corporate communication providers need to consider security as an ongoing process that includes predicting threats as well as preventing, detecting, responding, and investigating them.
