HP TippingPoint IPS safeguards Mobinil’s GSM, 3G mobile and IP networks
Egypt’s wireless service provider Mobinil has selected HP TippingPoint offerings to boost network reliability and security for its 30 million customers.
HP said the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) safeguards Mobinil’s GSM, 3G mobile and IP networks, shielding its customers from network-borne threats.
To deliver real-time proactive inline protection for its distributed data centers and network infrastructure Mobinil has selected HP TippingPoint S5100N IPS and HP TippingPoint Core Controller platforms.
HP TippingPoint IPS detects and blocks trojans, viruses, worms or any potentially damaging network events, constantly cleans Mobinil’s networks of malicious and unwanted traffic, and includes an improved network performance of mission-critical applications.
The HP TippingPoint IPS devices form a secure, expandable application platform that allows Mobinil to support future growth.
HP supports Mobinil’s network with HP Technology Services for the next three years, enabling Mobinil to consistently deliver the up-to-date security for complete business continuity.
Mobinil Technology Security Operations manager Mohamed Wali said Mobinil need to be confident in its ability to offer assured service quality.
"HP delivers the level of network security required to ensure uninterrupted business continuity for Mobinil and our users," said Wali.
