Turkcell’s business in Belarus is rolling out a cloud-based security solution powered by Secucloud technology. The service protects mobile internet users from malware, Trojans, and viruses. It will be available to the 1.6 million customers served by the company life:) by the end of this year.

“With Secucloud’s cloud-based security solution, our customers are protected from internet threats and do not need to worry about installing or constantly updating software,” said Dina Tsybulskaya, CEO at CJSC Belarusian Telecommunication Network. “This convenience is exactly what our customers expect from us.”

Secucloud is a German company that offers the cloud-based Advanced Security Suite. It routes internet traffic from apps, browsers and background processes through Secucloud’s Elastic Cloud Security System to check it for damaging content. It leverages anti-anonymiser, anti-bot, anti-hacking, anti-malware, and anti-phishing tools.

“Following on from our master agreements with two of the largest groups in the telecommunications industry – Deutsche Telekom AG and Ooredoo – we’re currently expanding our sales activities in the European and Asian region,” explains Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud. “We’ve taken another important step for market development in Europe and Asia with this new partnership: life:) is part of the international Turkcell Group, with a number of subscribers that amounted to approximately 51.4 million as of June 30, 2017. Turkcell Group companies operate in nine countries – Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus, Northern Cyprus, Germany, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Moldova.”

The worldwide enterprise security software was worth $1.76 billion in 2015 and is poised to grow to $3.21 billion in 2020. Mobile security and vulnerability management is the largest and fast growing subset of the larger market, according to IDC.

"Mobility and BYOD, in particular, are core initiatives for enterprises moving to the 3rd Platform," says Phil Hochmuth, program director, Enterprise Mobility at IDC. "However, enterprise mobility technology deployed without security will do more harm than good regarding an organization's 3rd Platform aspirations. To that end, any enterprise mobility initiative must start with a mobile security technology plan."
