Sunrise looks to safeguard fixed and mobile with new security solution

News

Swiss operator Sunrise has unveiled an all-in-one security product for fixed and mobile customers.

Sunrise surf protect, designed for private customers and small businesses, offers protection from phishing, hacking, virus, botnets and ransomware threats.

The surf protect service secures one mobile device, while surf protect home safeguards all devices connected to the home router.

The full end-to-end solution, surf protect family, covers an unlimited number of mobile devices in one household and all devices connected to the router.

The services are priced at CHF 2.90, CHF 5.00 and CHF 10.00 respectively and offered under one-month plans.

For an additional CHF 1.60 per month, customers can add Kaspersky Safe Kids, a product allowing parents to set time limits and restrictions on children’s internet usage. Parents can also monitor browsing habits and ascertain the location of a child’s device. The option is available for Sunrise customers with mobile subscriptions and works with iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices.

Olaf Swantee, CEO of Sunrise, said: "With surf protect, we are the first telecommunications provider in Switzerland to offer extra internet protection directly on our network by alerting users when they access unsafe websites.

“Whether customers use PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, or even TVs and game consoles – every device connected to the internet with a Sunrise router or a Sunrise SIM card is automatically protected."

Figures from Nokia released earlier this year showed that there was a 63 percent increase in infections across mobile networks in the second half of last year.
