Huawei joins MANRS to boost global internet security

Huawei became a founding member of the Equipment Vendor Program (EVP) of the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) in an effort to actively improve global internet security.

MANRS is a global initiative fostered by the Internet Society (ISOC). It aims to provide crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats, such as Internet route hijacking, route leakage, and address spoofing through cooperation among carriers, IXPs, CDN and cloud providers, equipment vendors, and policy decision-makers, said a press release.

Ultimately, it aims to improve Internet security and resilience. The MANRS EVP is a new program for equipment vendors, following the Network Operator Program, IXP Program, and CDN and Cloud Programme.

“Huawei, a worldwide leader in network equipment, is leading by example through their active contributions to the new MANRS Equipment Vendor Program,” said Andrei Robachevsky, Senior Director, Technology Programs for the ISOC.

“Routing security is crucial to Internet security, and that includes network devices (e.g., routers and IXP switches), the foundation of the Internet,” said Hank Chen, President of Router Domain, Data Communication Product Line, Huawei.

In the future, Huawei will continue to make efforts to ensure the openness, security, and stability of the Internet and work with industry partners to promote the prosperity of the global Internet.

Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.
