Nokia Launches New SaaS applications

SIM Secure Connect and AVA Network Data Analytics Function are two new software solutions (SaaS) launched by Nokia for mobile carriers and companies.

The new services, which are focused on security, data, and monetization, build on Nokia’s current SaaS business to enable telecoms service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to increase their value by transitioning to a subscription-based, old-school, cost-effective model.

Nokia’s new SaaS solution, ISIM Secure Connect, allows CSPs and companies to manage eSIM and iSIM-enabled device registrations in a secure and medium-term manner. It also integrates all components of the eSIM / iSIM management process seamlessly, allowing services linked to a reliable digital identification system to be monetized.

The company’s second product combines AI and analytics which is a virtualization and automation (AVA) solution. Nokia AVA Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF) offers analytics on the network edge, leverages 3GPP compliant analytics services, and promotes software development interactions because of its distributed architecture and open APIs.

To generate greater returns automation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) helps improve network performance and customer experience.

Regarding commercial releases, Nokia said their AVA NWDAF service would be available later this quarter with a SaaS delivery model. ISIM Secure Connect is scheduled to launch as SaaS later this year. However, other shipping options will continue to be available to customers.

BitSight and Marsh McLennan Joined forces to Strengthen Organizations’ Cybersecurity Performance

BitSight, the security ratings company and Marsh McLennan, the world’s leading professional services company in the categories of risk, strategy, and people, signed a collaboration to help businesses better understand, evaluate, and manage their cyber risks.

The recently launched Marsh McLennan Cyber Risk Analytics Center will use BitSight Security Ratings, data, and analytics to help customers better understand their cybersecurity performance by making more educated risk management decisions. Clients who have access to BitSight may obtain this information quickly, detect potential risks, and implement mitigation techniques. The two companies will also work on joint research and analysis, combining their widely renowned perspectives.

The importance of cybersecurity performance management cannot be overestimated, given the worrying rise in cybersecurity incidents. BitSight Security Ratings are the most extensively used and recognized cyber risk ratings in the market and the only solution that has been independently validated to correlate with data breach risk.

“2021 is shaping up to be one of the most challenging years for cyber risk on record, and we continue to hear from clients that cybersecurity is among their most urgent risk concerns. By collaborating with BitSight, we are providing clients with more data-driven insights to better manage risk in an increasingly difficult cybersecurity landscape,” said Scott Stransky, Head of the Marsh McLennan Cyber Risk Analytics Center.

“Cyber insurance brokers now play a critical role in helping their clients actively manage cyber risk. This marks an exciting opportunity to share our cyber risk data and expertise to help Marsh McLennan counsel their clients on reducing risk of cyber exposure. This collaboration builds on BitSight’s previous work to bring universal understanding to cyber risk, and further validates BitSight’s position as the trusted industry standard in cybersecurity ratings and analytics,” said Stephanie Snyder Frenier, vice president and general manager, insurance at BitSight.
