Bluefire unveils carrier-based security package for wireless users
Posted on 20-Oct-2004 23:05 | Tags Filed under: News



Through the use of Bluefire's Carrier Edition, carriers will be able to offer their subscribers an easy-to-use, over-the-air downloadable and remotely configurable security software package. Bluefire's Carrier Edition includes remote password set/reset, remote device wipe (the ability to remotely remove data from a device when a user has determined that it has been lost or stolen), and a firewall that protects users' data from unwanted electronic intrusion by hackers as well as from viruses, worms and Trojan horses.

Bluefire will provide carriers with customizable Web pages where software sales, downloads and device security management functions can be easily incorporated into carriers' Web sites and offered to subscribers as a carrier- branded solution. Carriers can create multiple classes of services to target multiple subscriber segments and can choose from a variety of pricing structures, using either per incident or monthly recurring pricing models.

Beyond answering subscribers' call to action, carriers can also mitigate risks to their own networks by deploying Bluefire's solution. When subscribers' devices are protected, it is less likely that a mobile worm, virus or Trojan will spread among mobile devices and across a carrier's network. If such a circumstance were to occur, it could result in service interruptions, slowdowns, a flood of calls to customer service and significant costs to the carrier.

Bluefire's Carrier Edition supports devices running operating systems such as Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003, (including Second Edition, Phone Edition and SmartPhone Edition), and PalmSource's 5.2.1H Edition. The software is currently in testing and will be available in the first quarter 2005.
