VinaPhone, a leading mobile operator in Vietnam has launched a new cloud-based security service to protect customer mobile phones from cyber attacks.
The security service is based on Secucloud’s Advanced Security Suite, which has been implemented within VinaPhone’s infrastructure. VinaPhone customers are able to protect their mobile web surfing with a flexible subscription and no need for any software installation.
The Operator signed a partnership late last year with the German security specialist Secucloud. The implementation phase of the project was completed successfully in early May.
The Advanced Security Suite blocks online threats like viruses, Trojans and other malware by detecting and removing them before they reach the user’s smartphone. It automatically routes all internet traffic through Secucloud’s Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2), where it is checked for damaging content using a combination of powerful security mechanisms.
These include anti-phishing, anti-malware, anti-bot, anti-hacking and anti-anonymiser tools. If the solution detects any threats, it blocks the harmful data packets automatically, offering users comprehensive protection while they use the mobile internet.
