The networks will be based on Nokia's equipment and installed by Cellcom with support from the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA).
Dany Zohar, director of infrastructure and information security at the government's CTO department, said: "By building a private 5G network and OneLayer security platform, the hospital can securely connect its devices without compromising speed, patient data or health security" Hospitals at the Israel Ministry of Health. "The visibility and context-based segmentation provided by OneLayer adequately enables different types of equipment to be connected to the same network – a fundamental requirement for hospitals as they become increasingly connected."
Hospitals and businesses are increasingly building private mobile networks using LTE/5G infrastructure. Mobile networks require a completely new security solution that can map connected devices from cellular protocols to the IP-based world. With this translation, device visibility and context-based segmentation can be implemented to secure the thousands of OT and IoT devices used within the enterprise. With OneLayer, enterprises can provide secure and rule-based communications across mobile and IP networks, and implement firewall and network access control (NAC) within private mobile networks. By deploying OneLayer, enterprises gain a complete view of cellular connected devices, enabling them to detect anomalies and protect against external threats.
The project will be among the first to use Edge Cloud Slicing, an architecture that relies on the public 5G environment for signaling while keeping data flows local to the enterprise core. OneLayer supports this important deployment model and works closely with Nokia and Cellcom to demonstrate how end-to-end security and management can be achieved in an Edge Cloud Slicing environment.
In addition to cellular integration, OneLayer will integrate with Medigate by Claroty on the network security side to provide full visibility of all IoT/OT devices in the medical network, and with Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) NAC to enable enterprise level consistency. enforcing policies across all devices in the operational technology (OT) network.
Dave Mor, CEO and Co-Founder of OneLayer said: "Ensuring an enterprise-level security approach is a key part of building private mobile networks. The two main needs are visibility and segmentation. With OneLayer, companies and hospitals can maintain their security standards even on their private mobile networks, thus ensuring the protection of all medical devices and machines."
