German IT security specialist to present its innovative security concept on the Orange booth at MWC 2017

Hamburg, Germany. 24 February 2017 – Whether we use our smartphones and tablets for online shopping, mobile banking or payments – even for financial transactions they have become an essential part of our everyday lives – and a very attractive target for hackers and cyber-criminals. The threat situation is growing continuously in Europe as in other parts of the world, as reports on the spread of the Android Trojan HummingBad have shown. Against this backdrop, the leading French telco Orange has invited the German IT security specialist Secucloud to its stand 3D10 in Hall 3 at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. On the 1st of March, the Secucloud specialists will all day be demonstrating their cloud-based security solution ECS2 on the Orange booth. The solution enables telcos to protect the entire mobile internet traffic of their private and business customers with high-performance, enterprise-level security technologies.

“Mobile devices are increasingly becoming the nerve centre of our digital life and the main gateway to the internet. This is unstoppable – in both our private and business activities,” comments Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud. “Hackers and cyber-criminals think up ever more sophisticated ways to get to our data and our wallets – so we also need new, innovative protection mechanisms to help us stand up to these online gangsters. That’s exactly what we’re doing with our cloud-based security concept. Just how easily and flexibly leading international telcos can protect their entire customer base using the latest enterprise security technologies is what we’re going to demonstrate at this year’s MWC.”
