Telefonica O2 deploys Nokia Siemens Networks security-as-a-service

Integrated security-as-a-service into Telefonica's OSS and BSS platforms

By CBR Staff Writer

Telefonica O2 in the Czech Republic has deployed Nokia Siemens Networks security-as-a-service at a fixed monthly fee, to enable its broadband Internet users to have control and security over their infrastructure and data.

Under the agreement, Nokia Siemens Networks has integrated its security-as-a-service into Telefonica’s operational support system/business support system (OSS/BSS) platforms.

The security service is delivered to Telefonica O2’s enterprise customers from its secure, centralised, and continuously updated platforms in O2 data centres to protect fixed Internet access.

Telefonica O2 Czech Republic director of product and services Oscar Gomez said the Internet is central to most businesses today but there are concerns about security threats such as malware, and the implications of access to the Web that a company provides and is responsible for, but cannot exercise control over.

"With its thorough knowledge of our network and expertise in smooth deployment of security suites, Nokia Siemens Networks was chosen to create a bespoke Internet service that we can offer to enterprises that addresses both security threats and responsible use," Gomez said.
