Vodafone adds laptop security for UK businesses

Vodafone launches Trend Micro’s ‘Worry-Free’ service to protect business customers’ laptops and desktops.

Vodafone has expanded its business security services to include protection for business customers’ laptops and desktops. Trend Micro’s ‘Worry-Free’ service is a new detection service to protect businesses and their employees from online security threats such as ransomware, out-of-date applications, and phishing attacks on desktops and laptops.

Recent research* by Vodafone has found that 90% of UK organisations believe that cybersecurity is vital to their future.

As part of the new service, Vodafone will offer customers the following Trend Micro Worry-Free features:

  • anti-ransomware protection – providing the latest technologies to protect businesses against the latest crypto and ransomware threats;
  • URL filtering – compares webpages against a database to prevent employees from accessing un-productive and harmful sites such as phishing web pages;
  • data protection – provides tools to prevent sensitive data from leaving the business via email, USB, CD/DVD, for example;
  • smart protection network – this uses a global network of threat intelligence sensors to continually update email, web, and file reputation databases in the cloud, identifying and blocking threats in real time to improve performance and protection;
  • cloud dashboard for centralised management – providing complete control of the security of all devices, wherever they are, with a cloud-based dashboard accessible via a web browser;
  • tailored options – ensuring customers only pay for the protection they need.

The service is compatible across Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices as well as Microsoft 365, G-Suite, Box, Dropbox and Salesforce cloud services.

In addition to Trend Micro, Vodafone offers a number of specialist cyber security solutions for business customers, such as its Lookout Mobile Security and Vodafone Cloud backup to secure a full range of devices and cloud applications.

Customers can also manage all their company’s bills, security notifications and licences in one place using Vodafone Business Marketplace. This enables businesses to use and manage their applications in one simple and secure site, from anywhere.

Anne Sheehan, Business Director, Vodafone UK, said:

“With more employees than ever before working from home because of the Covid-19 pandemic, cyber threats are more prevalent than they have ever been. We are here to help businesses ensure that remote working is safe and secure. We are delighted to have teamed up with Trend Micro to enhance our security offering for our business customers.”

Bharat Mistry, Principal Security Strategist, Trend Micro, added:

“Whatever their size, organisations are struggling to manage an uptick in cyber threats targeting the devices of those employees who are working from home, that’s why we’ve partnered with Vodafone.

“Backed by Trend Micro’s 30-plus years’ industry experience and delivered by Vodafone, a highly trusted technology communications company, this comprehensive set of security capabilities will give tremendous value and peace of mind for Vodafone customers.”
