Cable & Wireless Introduces Fixed Cost Secure Mobility Service

Cable & Wireless Europe, Asia & US is now offering customers Secure Mobility, a fully managed service enabling secure, fixed cost WiFi access anywhere around the world.

The company says their new service marks a number of industry firsts, namely: first to market with a fixed, per seat cost model for mobility, first to offer a combined managed secure network admission solution and first to combine these with SSL Quick Deployment VPN within a single managed service.

The new Secure Mobility managed service is designed to enable business customers to efficiently roll out “all inclusive” WiFi, 3G and voice mobile network access with internet roaming to the workforce, on a fixed cost, per seat basis.

Secure Mobility enables simple cost-benefit analysis for the business to add mobility quickly and transparently without introducing additional security threats. Customers also benefit from inherent disaster recovery capability through Cable & Wireless’ dual site resilience, improved business continuity planning ability, reduced office real estate requirement as well as the human elements of increased productivity through flexible working, improved staff retention and morale.

Tim Ryan, Global Roaming Product Manager for Security and Secure Mobility for Cable & Wireless said: “Customers now expect to conduct business through any device, at any time and from any location at home or abroad. Secure Mobility removes the remaining barriers for businesses to making this happen, namely the unknown costs associated with traditional access minutes, intermittent security and the complexity of managing a mobile workforce.

“To keep our promise of delivering excellent customer service, we have designed a complete managed solution to address these issues, which creates a service precedent customers find very compelling.”

Ryan continues: “Mobility is increasingly business critical for enterprise organisations. Secure Mobility is a market defining service bringing together all of the critical elements underpinning mobile internet and VPN access into a bitesize managed service for customers to easily roll out to the workforce and justify to the board. It’s another great example of Cable & Wireless’ commitment to delivering genuinely excellent customer service.”
