Huawei sets up cyber security centre

Huawei Technologies has established a security centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire to allow its products and software to be examined and tested independently.

The move is in response to a number of Governments' national security concerns, which has impacted on Huawei’s drive to expand its network business overseas.

Huawei hopes that its Cyber Security Evaluation Center will allay those fears.

John Frieslaar, MD of the centre, said: ‘This center is like a glasshouse - transparent, readily accessible and open to regulators and our customers.’

The security center will test hardware and software to ensure its ability to withstand cyber security threats.

Earlier this year India blocked imports of Chinese telecommunications equipment, citing national security concerns. The block was lifted after Huawei and ZTE complied with a new set of rules.

Both companies were also barred from bidding for a large Sprint Nextel Corp contract because of U.S. national security concerns.
