(Reuters) - China's Huawei has to raise its "worn-out" security standards from its competitors as the company is under increasing pressure in the West, a senior British security official said on Tuesday.
"Huawei is a company that makes things very different from its Western counterparts," said Ian Levy, technical director of the National Center for Cyber Security. "This is in part because of their rapid growth and part of it may be culturally."
"What we have concluded as a result is that security is worse and we have to deal with it."
The United States has imposed sanctions on Huawei, the world's largest maker of mobile phone equipment, and has tried to prevent it from buying US products, saying it will limit the exchange of information with allies who will continue to use the company's technology.
Last April, the National Security Council decided to prevent Huawei from dealing with the core parts of the fifth generation network and to allow it to enter restricted parts.
The Chinese telecom giant has pledged to spend more than $ 2 billion to tackle the problems, but the company also warned that tangible results could take up to five years.
