ZTE Corporation has verified its commitment to the ICT industry against cyber security threats by launching its first cyber security lab in Nanjing, China.
Following the establishment of the Nanjing complex, the company is already planning to expand across the globe, with cyber security developments in Italy and Belgium already in the pipeline.
Through its vision, ‘Security in DNA, Trust through Transparency’, ZTE is committed to providing customers with end-to-end security products and services by integrating security considerations and controls into every aspect of the product's life cycle. The cyber security lab aims to provide global customers, regulators and other stakeholders with security assessment and audit services, such as source code reviews on ZTE products, including 4G and 5G, security design audit, procedural document review, black box testing and penetration testing.
Furthermore, the cyber security lab, functioning as an industry cooperation and research platform, will also facilitate in-depth research and exploration in the field of security.
“The security lab is an open and cooperative platform for the industry,” said Zhong Hong, chief security officer at ZTE. “ZTE plans to gradually achieve its cyber security goals through three steps: first, meeting the requirements of cyber security laws, regulations and industry standards as well as certification schemes; second, conducting an open dialogue to enhance transparency and establishing cooperation with customers as well as regulatory agencies; and third, sustaining the open cooperation mechanism to contribute to cyber security standardisation.”
