Telecom major Vodafone said on Thursday that it was partnering with enterprise security solutions provider Trend Micro to offer a cloud-based end-point security suite for businesses.
Called Vodafone Super Shield, the suite aims to protect critical business data from a host of threats including malware attacks, ransomware, spyware, phishing websites and data thefts.
"Super Shield is equipped with advanced enterprise grade features including USB port blocking, URL filtering and full disk encryption on Windows," Vodafone said in a statement. "Backed by Trend Micro’s Cloud based Global Smart Protection Network, it proactively identifies and blocks new and existing threats before they impact devices."
Users of Vodafone Super Shield will receive updates real-time on the cloud platform, thus eliminating the need for servers or complex IT infrastructure to manage the deployment, the company said.
It added that its admin management feature would be accessible at all times from the URL-based admin console.
"Super Shield is designed to protect devices across platforms and devices including Windows PCs, MacBooks, Windows Servers as well as Android and iOS mobile platforms," said Anil Philip, senior vice president, Vodafone Business Services.
Vodafone Business Services, the enterprise arm of Vodafone, provides total telecommunications solutions across both mobility and fixed line platforms.
The telecom provider has said that Vodafone Super Shield is currently available on its online automated marketplace Vodafone CloudStore at Rs 99 per user per month or Rs 999 per user for 12 months.
Vodafone will also extend dedicated account management, relationship management and cloud support infrastructure that helps with onboarding and in-life support.
