DT selects ClearPath Networks’ VSP-NFV Platform

Darmstadt, 09 April 2014 /PRNewswire/:  ClearPath Networks, Inc., a supplier of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platforms to mobile, fixed and cloud operators globally, announced Deutsche Telekom’s selection of its NFV-based Virtual Network Services Platform (VSP) to enable its new Corporate Security Hub service for managed enterprise mobility.

Deutsche Telekom’s Corporate Security Hub (CSH), commercially available in April 2014, delivers comprehensive Internet security-as-a-service for enterprises’ mobile users without requiring enterprises to build or support additional infrastructure.  The cloud-based service supports popular mobile device operating systems and is centrally managed through a simple, secure web portal. User accounts are automatically provisioned, configured and managed in real time.

Recognizing the accelerating adoption of mobile-centric networking amongst the 7 billion new smartphones and tables that will ship worldwide over the next five years, according to Infonetics, Deutsche Telekom created CSH to dramatically lower the cost of managed enterprise mobile device security. Infonetics forecasts 28% CAGR sales growth for mobile device security clients to $2.9 billion by 2017.

Users remain productive and retain complete administrative control over their personal mobile devices while their devices stop becoming potential sources of viruses and other unwanted files injected into their corporate private networks.

“Deutsche Telekom’s Products & Innovations group has once again demonstrated their ability to leverage emerging new technologies that transform customer value propositions” said Cliff Young, ClearPath CEO. “Corporate Security Hub leverages our VSP’s Network Functions Virtualization platform-as-a-service capabilities to drive cost efficiencies, flexibility and scalability that enable DT to successfully meet the needs of their customers’ growing mobile workforces.”

“For this reason it was important that we build our own private cloud in Germany.  In addition, we understand the dynamic nature of the marketplace and wanted to ensure that we had the flexibility to modify features and applications as our customers’ requirements evolve.  With ClearPath we were able to get both plus a highly scalable platform that supports our customers in Germany and internationally”.
