German-based security specialist provides flexible protection for secure mobile surfing
The service will be based on Secucloud’s Advanced Security Suite, which protects mobile internet users from 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 from apps, browsers and background processes through Secucloud’s Elastic Cloud Security System(ECS2), where it is checked for damaging content using a combination of powerful security mechanisms, including 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.
Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud, notes: “As part of Jordan’s plans to become an information and communication technology hub in the Middle East, the human factor plays an important role. Although the country has scarce reserves of raw materials, it has a very high level of education and one of the best-qualified workforces in the region. That’s why there is such a requirement for reliable internet security. Telcos like Umniah need a simple yet powerful way to protect their customers from damaging content. And that’s exactly what we’re going to help them provide.”
Umniah stands out in one of the region’s most competitive markets as the fastest growing and most trusted telecommunications provider. Since its launch in June 2005, Umniah has demonstrated its commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions to individuals and enterprises, relying on a forward-thinking strategy that has given the operator the agility and versatility it needs to spearhead Jordan’s digital future. In addition to making a significant contribution to the growth of Jordan’s ICT landscape, Umniah is also an active contributor to the local community, focusing on critical sectors and segments such as education, entrepreneurship and the youth.
Secucloud is the first German-based provider of a comprehensive, completely cloud-based, enterprise-class security system for telcos and mobile phone operators. The modular Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2) is installed directly into the carrier’s network infrastructure, enabling it to protect its customers from all cyber-threats on the internet in a centralised way. Customers do not need to install any software on their devices, so no setup or maintenance is required. The Secucloud solution scales elastically and can protect more than 100 million users effectively and in real time. While customers are surfing the web, the various analysers in ECS2 scan all data traffic for malicious and damaging content. To ensure extensive protection, Secucloud combines multiple powerful security technologies, including multi-AV engines, next generation firewall, packet analysers (including deep packet inspection as well as IDS and IPS systems), global cloud intelligence, DNS layer analysers, SSL scan decision, trust & reputation analysers, APT sandbox analysers and content analysers.
