Operator selects Nokia Siemens Networks to deliver secure online environment

Companies that use Telefónica O2 in the Czech Republic for broadband Internet access now have more control and greater security over the service. The operator has chosen to deploy Nokia Siemens Networks’ security-as-a-service at a fixed monthly fee. The service helps organizations to protect their infrastructure, data and staff cost efficiently.

“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,” said Oscar Gómez, director of Product and Services at Telefónica O2 Czech Republic. “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.”

Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks has integrated its security-as-a-service into Telefónica’s operational support system/business support system (OSS/BSS) platforms. The security service is delivered to Telefónica O2’s enterprise customers from the operator’s secure, centralized, and continuously updated platforms in O2 data centers to protect fixed Internet access. A fixed monthly fee is charged to enterprises for the service.

“Telefónica O2 operates in a highly competitive market environment where providing differentiating services becomes key to maintaining a leadership position,” said Jiri Gejdos, in charge of Nokia Siemens Networks relations with Telefónica O2 in the Czech Republic. “Our ‘pay as you grow’ approach to Internet security for enterprises can be expanded to offer additional services and cover new market segments, thus enabling the operator to tap new revenue streams.”
