Cybersecurity provider ActZero recently announced it is teaming up with wireless carrier UScellular. The partnership makes UScellular the only wireless carrier to offer the ActZero Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service.
Working together, the two organizations make it easier for businesses to secure their mobile devices from ransomware and phishing attacks. UScellular Business Ultimate and Business Premium unlimited handset plans now include ActZero MDR for Mobile.
“UScellular and ActZero share a common goal: to bring better performance and better security to businesses at a fair price,” said ActZero CEO Sameer Bhalotra. “With ActZero’s on-device cyberdefense technology plus 24/7 security operations staff, UScellular business customers can stop mobile threats quickly, before they spread into the corporate network.”
ActZero’s 24/7 threat coverage stops breaches on mobile devices and networks with a 90 percent block rate and response time of 15 minutes for critical alerts. Customers can deploy ActZero MDR for Mobile within minutes to their employees’ iOS, Android or Chrome mobile phones, tablets and laptops. On-device protection and real-time notifications eliminate delays if a mobile device is compromised. ActZero’s patent-pending AI means better cyberdefense and fewer false alarms.
“ActZero delivers a powerful and affordable cybersecurity service businesses need to prioritize threat and vulnerability management,” said Kim Kerr, senior vice president, enterprise sales and operations for UScellular. “Our customers often don’t have the IT resources to ensure they are protecting their network and devices from malware, phishing and ransomware attacks. The unique artificial intelligence and machine learning from ActZero intelligently pinpoints threats so less time is spent filtering noise and more time is focused on the action that should be taken, when it’s truly important.”
