Mobile operator Entel Peru has got together with network intelligence and security-as-a-service (SECaaS) solutions provider Allot to protect mobile network users from cyberattacks.
Entel has launched the Allot NetworkSecure cybersecurity solution to protect the company’s mobile users against a broad range of cyber threats – and to provide parental controls.
Allot NetworkSecure is described as a leading platform for network-based mass-market cybersecurity. By using this platform, Allot says that Entel is offering its customers a security service to protect them against emerging cybersecurity threats, including viruses, malware, phishing attacks, ransomware, cryptojacking and malicious sites. NetworkSecure also provides content filtering capabilities that enable parental controls.
In addition, Allot says, with this network-based solution subscribers do not need to download, install or update any software; a zero-touch mass-market user onboarding path is part of the offering.
Subscribers to the solution will pay a monthly fee that Entel will share with Allot, which will earn recurring revenue based on the success of the service.
“Almost half of Peru’s mobile users have suffered a cyberattack, which is why Entel wants to provide our customers with an easy-to-use cybersecurity solution,” said Alonso Lazo, Marketing Director at Entel. “With this in mind, we selected Allot to offer a mobile security solution that cannot be bypassed, and which removes the burden from our customers.”
Allot NetworkSecure also delivers ongoing branded notifications to subscribers about the protection and value they get from the service provider, opening a new digital channel to better engage with customers.
