Israel's mce Systems, a provider of mobile device solutions, said Tuesday that it has signed a strategic agreement with cybersecurity company Check Point to provide high-level security for mce mobile services.
Within the scope of the Check Point technologies that will be integrated into mce's solutions, the company will provide mobile operators with cutting-edge cybersecurity technology addressing threats such as call-tapping, location tracking, online eavesdropping, unauthorized microphone recording, malicious use of private photos and more, mce said. Check Point's ZoneAlarm Mobile Security suite is to be integrated into the company's software.
Liran Weiss, CCO of mce, said, "Mobile devices become a gateway to almost everything in our daily lives. It is a wonderful human evolution, but it has its own perils. Gateways are open for both friendly and malicious traffic and mce provides operators with the 'guardians' against the il-indented mobile communication leading to fraud, identity theft and cyber-crime. We see our collaboration with Checkpoint as one of the key benefits to mobile communication safety in modern times."
According to mce, its solutions enable device lifecycle management, device value optimization, cost reduction and the generation of new business.
