eSecuritel Teams with NQ Mobile for New, Full-Spectrum Damage-to-Data Protection Offering for Customers

eSecuritel, a Brightstar company providing wireless device insurance through mobile operators and retailers worldwide, is augmenting its popular wireless device protection offerings by incorporating the award-winning security and privacy solutions from NQ Mobile (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services. The new, comprehensive package, available for iOS and Android platforms, extends eSecuritel’s physical device protection, bringing a bundled offering that integrates damage and loss coverage along with premium security features.

“There’s a misconception that phones are safer than computers. The reality is, they’re every bit as vulnerable and hold as much sensitive data as a desktop computer. It’s estimated that over 50 million mobile devices will be attacked by a malicious virus this year, yet less than one-fifth of devices have any kind of mobile security,” said David Leach, CEO, eSecuritel. “We believe this comprehensive protection, which acknowledges that the data on our devices is as valuable as the devices themselves, gives our customers a competitive edge while giving subscribers invaluable peace of mind.”

“We’re proud to be working with eSecuritel to ensure that wireless device users’ mobile experiences are safe and their personal data remains secure,” commented Chris Stier, Managing Director, Americas, NQ Mobile. “By acknowledging that the value of a mobile device is more than just the hardware itself and offering a single solution for complete protection, eSecuritel is proving to be a strong partner in the fight against cybercrime, theft, and other threats.”

Incorporating NQ Mobile’s technology, eSecuritel can offer a complete system of mobile defense, including1:

  • Malware and Virus Protection
  • Malicious URL detection
  • Content and Contact Backup
  • Lost Phone Location
  • Remote Device Lock and Wipe
  • Safe Browsing
  • Device and Memory Optimization
  • Network Usage Monitoring
  • Encrypted data storage
  • Lost or stolen device replacement
  • Protection from liquid and other damage

“Our relationship with NQ Mobile has been in place since last year, and we’ve already seen great success with our current partners,” said eSecuritel President, Jenn Taylor. “We’ve now taken the next step by combining both services into one purchase and one payment. With our new bundled offer, carriers and dealers are providing a real value add.”

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
