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."
