Heavy Reading, the research division of Light Reading--a telecommunications industry information company, recently launched a 5G Security Market Leadership study in collaboration with a number of research sponsors, including Palo Alto Networks, to fully understand the scope of security implications in the deployment cycle of 5G networks. The study was based on a comprehensive survey that attracted 103 global service provider respondents. 

This white paper presents a subset of several key findings from study that provide valuable security-related insight into investment priorities, architecture preferences, and control plane considerations. It also assesses the value of implementing advanced capabilities such as content inspection and automated security policy enforcement.
