Private enterprise networks based on 5G cellular technology are accelerating digital transformation across industries including manufacturing, healthcare, defence and smart cities. Private 5G gives enterprises access to high-speed, massively scalable, and ultra- reliable wireless connectivity, allowing them to implement innovative IoT and mobile solutions that enhance productivity, drive automation and improve customer engagement.

The security of these networks will be paramount as they will support safety-critical infrastructure and carry highly sensitive data. 5G networks coupled with direct-to-device connectivity, has significantly expanded the attack surface allowing cyber adversaries to launch attacks on a broader scale and at faster speeds.

The integration of CableFree’s 5G Small Cell Radios with Arqit’s Symmetric Key Agreement encryption technology delivers enhanced security for Private 5G networks and are now available to customers worldwide. Using zero trust architecture, these standards-compliant products deliver rotating authentication, making data harvesting useless.

David Williams, Arqit Founder, Chairman and CEO said:

“In the USA, NIAP has mandated support of RFC 8784 meaning that symmetric key agreement will now be at the heart of all CSfC classified networking, and we expect this to flow through to most commercial environments. The telecoms industry also needs to take urgent action now to secure sensitive data for the long-term. The integration of CableFree’s 5G range with Arqit’s unique Symmetric Key Agreement Platform will keep sensitive data and communications safe from current and future cyber threats including spoofing attacks and quantum computing.”

Stephen Patrick, CableFree Founder and CEO said:

“We are delighted to extend the CableFree 5G range to include the latest quantum-safe encryption technology from Arqit, deployable as a software extension running on our proven range of 5G radios. Enhanced security is of benefit for many customers worldwide.”
