Swisscom Mobile Deploys ArcSight

Swisscom Mobile deploys ArcSight to detect viruses and malware

LONDON -- ArcSight, Inc., a global leader in Enterprise Security Management (ESM) software, today announced Swisscom Mobile, the leading mobile communications provider in Switzerland, has deployed ArcSight ESM to correlate and identify patterns within their wireless access infrastructure for the purposes of malware and virus detection.

Chosen as part of Swisscom Mobile's programme to provide monitoring and filters for mobile malware countermeasures, this deployment further solidifies Swisscom's position as an industry pioneer by offering customers the highest level of protection against viruses and malware. This solution is based on ArcSight's capabilities in identifying varying usage and data patterns. The risk of mobile viruses and malware has become significant. This development has led Swisscom Mobile to add new dimensions to its network security by leveraging ArcSight ESM.

"Mobile malware is becoming one of the largest single risks to mobile handsets, but our deployment of ArcSight ESM allows us to protect our customers and network," said Marcel Zumbühl, Head of Security, Swisscom Mobile. "The fact that we are among the first mobile operators with this type of solution to specifically target mobile malware reduces customer risk. The advanced event correlation provided by ArcSight ESM allows us to react in a timely fashion on new threats."
