Ericsson and Intel Security are collaborating to provide managed security solutions to telecom operators to bundle with services they provide to enterprises.
Ericsson’s managed services expertise, global delivery capabilities and network security expertise will be combined with Intel Security’s portfolio of consumer and enterprise security solutions.
The providers will contribute their expertise in regulatory compliance, as well as their local response capabilities and ability to combine communications and security services. Intrusion prevention and web and email security solutions will also be available.
The move taps into the burgeoning enterprise mobility and unified communications markets.
Chris Young, Senior Vice President and GM of Intel Security, says: "Telecommunications networks are a critical component of the economic and social infrastructures that we rely upon. Together, Intel Security and Ericsson are working to keep the well over three billion people across the globe that use these systems safe and secure."
Jean-Claude Geha, Vice President and Head of Managed Services at Ericsson, commented: "Intel Security has an exceptional, end-to-end consumer and enterprise security product portfolio.
"Ericsson is the leader in telecom managed services with the scale, skills and people required to make Intel’s security solutions available to telecom operators around the world. Together, we will be able to provide exceptional managed security solutions to telecom operators."
