Vitor Cunha received the Altice Innovation 2022 award for his groundbreaking research in the field of cybersecurity and network defence. Vitor's work on "Dynamic Defence for Softwarized and Virtualized Networks" brings innovation and addresses a critical need in today's digital landscape.

In his doctoral thesis, Vitor has introduced a fresh perspective on cybersecurity, one that complements traditional approaches and offers an effective solution against both known and unknown network attacks. This is a significant contribution as the cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving, and new threats emerge regularly.

Vitor's approach, which leverages Software and Virtualized networks, is not only a technical necessity but also a forward-looking strategy. By not tying the solution to a specific network or manufacturer, it paves the way for long-term flexibility and adaptability. This is especially important as technology continues to advance, and the scope of virtualized networks extends beyond the current technologies, including the 5G core.

Vitor's work exemplifies the essence of innovation by identifying gaps in existing solutions and developing novel approaches to address them. Vitor Cunha is driving progress in the field of cybersecurity.
