Fixmo Powers '3 Super Safe' Personal Mobile Security Solution from 3 Hong Kong
STERLING, Va. & TORONTO & HONG KONG --(Business Wire)--
the mobile risk management (MRM) company, today announced that it is
Super Safe, a mobile security and personal protection solution for
mobile subscribers of 3
Hong Kong, the mobile telecommunications division of Hutchison
Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH; HKex stock code:
3 Super Safe helps smartphone users have a safe and secure mobile
experience by protecting their device, data and privacy-whether they use
the device personally, or as part of a corporate BYOD program. Built on
Fixmo's defense-grade mobile security platform, 3 Super Safe keeps users
protected from malware and viruses, unauthorized snooping and insecure
Wi-Fi connections, personal data and privacy theft, and other emerging
threats associated with mobile devices. 3 Super Safe also backs up
personal data to the cloud and makes it easy to locate, lock or wipe a
lost or stolen device. And with Fixmo's unique risk analytics engine, 3
Super Safe can even identify when a device may be in a lost or stolen
state and automatically trigger an alert or device lock command without
any user interaction required.
3 Super Safe protects:
Personal data: through cloud-based backup and restore of
personal information, remote lock and wipe commands on lost or stolen
devices, and uniqe "anti-loss" security protocols that lock down user
data based on suspicious behavior that may suggest the device is lost
Personal privacy: through anti-virus and malware detection,
call and SMS filtering, secure storage of private contacts, insecure
network detection and more.
Personal devices: through web-based device management tools
that allow a user to locate a lost or stolen device using GPS, remote
image capture and retrieval, and audible 'scream' alerts.
"If a phone's SIM card is removed, if a certain number of phone calls
are missed, or if an irregular number of SMS messages are sent, there is
a reasonable chance that the device has been lost or stolen and that the
owner's data and personal privacy are at risk," said Rick Segal, CEO,
Fixmo. "With Fixmo's unique risk analytics engine, compromise
detection system, and remote locate and management capabilities, 3 Super
Safe is a state-of-the-art solution for helping mobile device users have
a safe and protected mobile experience."
"Serving customer needs is always our top priority. As nearly 60% of our
3G and 4G postpaid customers are smart device users, navigating the
dangers that smart device users now face, including insecure Wi-Fi
connections, malware, viruses, privacy loss and data theft has become a
real challenge," said Amy Lung, Managing Director - Mobile of HTHKH.
"We are excited to be partnering with Fixmo on the 3 Super Safe solution
to address these issues head-on, and to help our customers be safe while
making the most of their mobile experience."
3 Super Safe is now available as a value-added service for 3 Hong Kong
