Airwide unveils Network and Personal Security offering

Comprehensive user, network and service protection from rapidly changing threat vectors

By CBR Staff Writer

Airwide Solutions, a provider of next generation mobile messaging infrastructure, applications and offerings, has launched Airwide’s Network and Personal Security (NPS) offering that the company says provides a comprehensive means to address the security issues faced mobile operators and subscribers.

The new security offering provides multiple layers of protection, shielding subscribers, operator infrastructure and service revenues from potential threats and unwanted content.

Airwide said this new offering goes beyond traditional antispam technology to address the burgeoning array of security threats affecting mobile operators and their subscribers.

NPS protects subscribers and operators from threats, such as off-net traffic sources, advertising spam, bullying messages, and revenue leakage from VAS providers.

The company claims that the new offering is tailored and tuned to the specific challenges of mobile networks across all channels and threat vectors.

According to a recent report by Ovum, over three-quarters of workplace smartphone users believe they expose their business to attack, and 60% of users are afraid of personal devices being used as a conduit for malware getting onto the network, while 40% are concerned about a compliance failure.
