Implementation phase completed successfully
VinaPhone is initially providing its customers with the Secucloud service free of charge as a four-week test, in order to verify the solution’s performance in real life. Following this period, customers can simply add the service to their existing mobile contract, ordering it by SMS or via the web.
“We’re happy to be able to provide VinaPhone customers with effective protection – it’s well suited to the challenges and specific circumstances of our market as it’s delivered from the cloud,” said Tuan Nguyen, CEO at VKAS, a VinaPhone partner. “The great support from the Secucloud project teams helped us complete the implementation phase in less than six months. As a result, we now have a new solution that enables us to react fast to future developments. That’s because its modular structure allows us to add new security technologies whenever necessary, so we have the possibility to let our customers always benefit from the latest technologies.”
High-performance security functions from the cloud
The security service is based on Secucloud’s Advanced Security Suite, which has been implemented within VinaPhone’s infrastructure by VKAS and Secucloud. 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.
VinaPhone is a subsidiary of VNPT Group, a 100 percent state-owned company in Vietnam. VinaPhone provides all internet and telecommunication services across Vietnam, from ISDN, VoIP and Mobile to IPLX and Broadband. VinaPhone is one of the top three mobile operators in Vietnam with millions of mobile internet subscribers using 3G/4G.

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.
