Umniah, a subsidiary of the Bahrain-based Batelco group, that has over 9 million customers in 14 countries, is now working with the German security specialist Secucloud to provide its customers with mobile Internet security.
This year, the two companies plan to offer a cloud-based, centralized security service which will provide users with simple and efficient protection against smartphone malware. Umniah then plans to extend the service to corporate customers.
“We’re now able to offer our customers a subscription to flexible and powerful protection that is practically invisible in everyday use. They won’t need to install anything on their devices or keep the system up to date. As a result, our customers can focus on their use of the net while working productively and securely with their mobile devices,” said Ziad Shatara, CEO at Umniah.
Shatara added, “With the Secucloud solution, we’ve found just the right technology to extend our service with a key component.” Thus, the service will be based on Secucloud’s Advanced Security Suite.
This aims to protect mobile internet users from online threats like viruses, Trojans, and other malware by detecting and removing them before they reach the user’s smartphone.
Having secure Internet usage plays a key role in supporting ICT development in Jordan, and this is one of the many steps that they are taking to achieve that.
