Telefonica selects Juniper Networks to offer mobile security service across Europe

Telecom Lead Europe: Telefonica Digital has selected
Juniper Networks Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite to create mobile security
service for its consumer customer base across Europe.


Telefonica’s initial European rollout will focus on the
British, German and Spanish markets, but it expects to extend to other markets
in later phases.


Telefonica’s new mobile security service will provide a
comprehensive range of features including anti-virus, anti-spyware, data
back-up, remote lock-and-wipe, device locate and parental controls.


Telefónica will offer Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite
under its own brand names, with cloud-based software service management hosted
by Juniper Networks.


This approach enables Telefónica to rapidly deploy and
deliver new services across new markets while avoiding major upfront capital
investment in equipment.


“In addition to raising customer satisfaction and
delivering peace of mind, the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite solution will
also help reduce Telefonica’s customer support costs significantly by
eliminating many issues caused by viruses, lost devices and data, and other
threats. Telefónica customers using the Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite will
be able to secure their high-value mobile services and applications, while
protecting vital, sensitive data from risk,” said Sanjay Beri, vice
president and general manager, Junos Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks.


“Smartphones are now ubiquitous, with many customers
using them to store sensitive personal data and access not only messaging and
social networks but also key applications such as online banking, and to
remotely connect to corporate networks. We consider the provisioning of
reliable, intelligent and easy-to-use protection as a key differentiator, and a
real enabler of the mobile revolution,” said Jose Perdomo, managing director,
Security and eHealth Area, Telefonica Digital.


The solution is supported by Juniper Networks’ Mobile
Threat Center, which is dedicated to 24×7 global monitoring and mitigation of
emerging and evolving malware threats to mobile operating systems and
applications.


Juniper Networks Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite is
unique in its ability to provide pervasive protection at the hand-held device
level against emerging malware, device and data loss/theft, as well as enable
child safety and parental control.


It enables Telefonica to provide a homogenous,
cost-effective service that supports numerous devices for the mass market
helping us better protect our customers and our network.
