STOCKHOLM, July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Enea® (NASDAQ
Stockholm: ENEA), a global supplier of innovative software
components for telecommunications and cybersecurity, today
announced the results of the first survey about deep packet
inspection (DPI) conducted among high-tech product managers.
The goal of the survey is to better understand how DPI, a
technology that identifies and details network traffic, is used by
telecommunications and cybersecurity solution vendors today, and
what they need from DPI in the future.
The responses reveal much more than specific details about DPI
needs. They show that telecom and security vendors and their
customers are facing rapid changes as the cloud transformation, 5G
networking, work from home practices, and the Internet of Things
(IoT) have a profound effect on network users, devices, and
Respondents indicate that understanding and controlling network
traffic is key to surviving these changes. This is only possible
with accurate, real-time, application-level visibility. As a
result, DPI is seen as an essential technology, which must evolve
and continue to deliver the much-needed visibility. All indications
are that this evolution is happening, as the boundaries of DPI have
already been greatly expanded through the use of advanced
analytics, and the technology now delivers important insights about
network traffic even without inspecting the main content (or
payload) of packets.
Key findings show that:
- The elimination of conventional network borders - and with them
perimeter control points - makes traffic-based threat detection
more important. Abnormal traffic detection was identified as a top
use case for DPI software.
- 70 percent of respondents require classification of connected
devices in enterprise and IoT/industrial networks.
- The increased use of encryption along with adoption of the
stringent TLS 1.3 security protocol (mandatory in 5G), threatens
essential traffic visibility for many vendors.
- Most vendors report that they have or are developing cloud
solutions, with half of them planning to offer a Secure Access
Service Edge (SASE) solution, that integrates security and
networking in a cloud-based service.
"Gaining maximum visibility into network traffic has become both
more urgent - and more difficult", stated Jean-Philippe Lion, Senior Vice President of the
DPI Business Unit at Enea. "This is due to the convergence between
networking and cybersecurity, combined with an increased adoption
of cloud services. At Enea, we will continue to invest significant
R&D resources to ensure that our customers get the traffic
intelligence they need for their business".
To learn more, we invite you to attend a live presentation of
the results with Q&A on Thursday, July
23rd at 10:00 am Eastern Time
USA / 4:00
pm Central European Time (GMT +2).
After the event, the complete survey report will be available on
