Questions We Asked:

13:18 When is 5G meant to be rolled out for everyone? Is there a date when 5G will be available to everyone? Is there a “rough date” when we should all be using 5G?

14:30 Reference to Shodan (the OSINT hacking tool) we’ve all heard the horror stories of how easy it is to hack into someone’s webcam. Do you use Open Source Intelligent to discover open IoT devices and then try to lock them up or perhaps add them to your network monitoring?

17:20 In fact, you’ve kinda answered my next question! Why is it important to have “inline solutions” in the network?

20:15 You mentioned inspecting the traffic. Does that refer to “Deep Packet Inspection”. Is that one of the benefits that Allot offers, i.e. being able to detect malicious activity within the packets?
