A Security Threat Warning

According to the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Mike Rogers Chienese technology companies ZTE and Huawei company products and services are posing a threat to the U.S. government and businesses.  Congressional investigators plan to turn over to the FBI evidence of potential cyber-espionage involving these two companies.

According to a committee report investigators received “numerous allegations” from U.S. companies that equipment bought from Huawei sent unauthorized data to computers in China.

Huawei is a Chinese company that was founded in 1987, and grew from a $5,680 small company to a global company with a sales volume of over $20 billion with business presence in over 140 countries.  Their products include software and hardware used in providing telecommunications services such as iManager U2000, iManager 2510, iManager Nastar, iManager PRS, NetCo.  Their software and equipment is used by large and small companies to provide telecommunications services.

ZTE is a leading global provider of both telecommunications equipment and handset devices.  It has over 69,000 employees.  They serve more than 500 carriers in over 140 countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America and South Asia.  Their devices include cell phones Anthem, Render, Warp Sequent, Z431, Concord, Merit, Jetpack 890L, Score M, and Fury for telecom providers such as Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, MetroPCS, Verizon, US Cellular, and Boost Mobile.

The committee report recommends that government agencies and contractors should not use their equipment.  U.S. network providers should avoid using their equipment.  Private businesses should reconsider doing business with these companies.
