KDDI America Provides Juniper Networks Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite Service to Smartphones

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - KDDI America Inc., the U.S. division of KDDI CORPORATION, a Global Fortune 500 company and worldwide leader in international telecommunications services, today announced it will provide KDDI Mobile users and other smartphone users Juniper Networks® Junos® Pulse Mobile Security Suite -- a comprehensive security software suite that protects mobile devices and defends users' mobile life, securing sensitive data stored on mobile devices that are used for work, play or both.

Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite is a comprehensive solution that includes smartphone security, management and centralized control for enterprises and consumers via a simple smartphone client and cloud-based web interface. Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite is an ideal solution for enterprise IT departments, providing centralized control through the web-based Junos Pulse Mobile Security Gateway, protecting a broad range of mobile devices from mobile malware, viruses, spam, and other exploits, while providing superior loss and theft protection.

The Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite offers:

  • Real-time antivirus protection that automatically updates and scans files received over all network connections, including email, SMS, MMS, direct download, Bluetooth, Infrared transmission and others
  • Loss and theft protection features, including remote lock and/or wipe, GPS locate and tracking, device backup and restore options, and remote alarm notification
  • Anti-spam blacklist filtering for voice and SMS communication
  • Monitoring and control features for viewing call logs, address books, SMS, emails and photos and history

Additionally, Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite enables KDDI America to offer a parental control monitoring system, delivering locate, track, monitor and control features for smartphones and mobile devices used by children and teenagers.

An increase in the mobile security threat landscape, combined with a more mature understanding of the role security technology can play in combating and mitigating these threats, is leading to greater IT investments in mobile security. Based on the growing sophistication of mobile devices -- as well as the growing sophistication of mobile threats keeping pace with mobile device growth -- and the level and sensitivity of corporate data stored on those devices, the risk of data loss from mobile devices or theft of mobile devices is significant. Now, with Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite end users can self-provision securely, and data can be secure and stored and visualized in a central location by the IT end user.

Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite provides diverse mobile platform support for Google Android devices, Apple iOS devices including Apple iPhones and iPads, RIM BlackBerry devices, and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.

KDDI America will provide additional discounts to KDDI Mobile users and will offer this service for free until the end of 2011. For other customers, the pilot promotion is a 30 day free trial which will be offered during July 2011.

"It is a great opportunity for our customers and prospects to participate in a free trial and experience this level of security management. It is the most comprehensive mobile security solution being offered at this time," said Sandra de Novellis, Director of Marketing, KDDI America.

"Heavy reliance on smart mobile devices in our daily lives to drive work productivity and one's own personal productivity has made mobile security a serious concern for enterprises and consumers," said Sanjay Beri, Vice President and General Manager, Junos Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks. "Juniper delivers a comprehensive secure mobility solution which ensures businesses and consumers are able to secure high value mobile services and applications, while protecting vital, sensitive data from risk. We are pleased to provide this comprehensive protection to KDDI America's customers."
