Trend Micro helps telcos to protect consumer's 'digital lives'
Trend Micro Consumer Connect suite will enable telcos to offer services to protect all digital devices
Trend Micro has announced a comprehensive security suite designed for telecom companies to deploy to better protect their users.
The Trend Micro Consumer Connect suite is intended to help protect consumers against known and unknown threats across the all of their digital end points, including smart home devices.
Trend Micro says that the suite will allow telecoms providers to offer a scalable solution that is easy to deploy to create another revenue stream from consumer customers.
"Smart home device sales are expected to reach $1.3bn by 2022, but cyber-criminals are primed to take advantage of design flaws and insecure configuration to hijack equipment and use it in damaging DDoS, info-stealing and other attacks," said Akihiko Omikawa, executive vice president IoT security for Trend Micro. "Our new suite securely lets Telecom providers help their customers lock their smart homes against intruders. That's great news for consumers and our telecom partners, who get a highly flexible, optimizable solution from a committed partner which will help to drive competitive advantage."
Trend Micro Consumer Connect combines endpoint protection, network defence and data security capabilities, leveraging Trend Micro's industry leading Smart Protection Network for global threat intelligence. A handy smartphone app provides visibility and control where users need it most, enabling them to check which devices are protected.
It protects against ransomware, zero-day threats, info-stealing trojans, crypto-mining, and other online threats designed to compromise IoT endpoints, covering all smart home devices plus PCs and mobiles.
Telecom partners also benefit from Trend Micro's unbeatable end-to-end support. Features include: simple API-based integration into the partner's infrastructure and processes; flexible solution to align to customers' needs; a security dashboard to help partners better understand their customers; exceptional support throughout the customer journey; and built-in marketing toolkits to drive ARPU and business growth.
