Spanish Companies Avoid Cybersecurity Issues with Telefonica Offering
Monday, August 12, 2019 | Comments

The Spanish small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) subscribed to Conexión Segura Empresas have avoided more than 80,000 potential cybersecurity incidents since the solution was launched in May. Of those, more than 89% of blocks occurred when users tried to access risky domains or websites, as a result of “phishing.”

“The service that Telefónica Empresas offers to its customers has been launched at a moment of high level of cybercrime, in which a new threat is created every six seconds, according to research carried out by Telefónica,” said José Luis Gilpérez, executive director for public administrations, defense and security in Telefónica Spain. “SMBs are the preferred target for cybercriminals because of their lower level of protection. Conexión Segura Empresas offers a scalable solution of the service that is currently being offered to large enterprises and administrations, so that SMBs can take a quality leap on their security policy.”

Thanks to the security technology of McAfee and Allot, respectively, Conexión Segura Empresas acts as a platform that, installed in the core of the Telefónica network, can filter all the data that enters the company’s network, analyze patterns and discard what is categorized as a virus or malicious software.

This solution also prevents users from landing on websites categorized as risky or inappropriate because of their content and avoids website impersonation, fraud and private data theft derived from scams. It also protects the company employees’ fixed and mobile devices in cases of device loss or theft, and when they are connected outside the corporate network.

This new service, with an average of 100 new and existing SMB customers subscribing per day, facilitates the personalization of the security solution throughout the company through its management portal. The portal provides data analytics for the company’s web browsing behavior and allows them to set control policies.
