Solutions Seamlessly Deliver Most Demanded Ongoing Broadband Services
BroadJump Inc, provider of software solutions for the efficient and rapid deployment of broadband services, today announced that McAfee.com (Nasdaq: MCAF), the world’s leading security Application Service Provider (ASP), has joined the BroadJump Partner Network. Through this partnership, BroadJump and McAfee.com will integrate respective solutions to allow broadband service providers to offer subscribers value-added security services, including a personal firewall and anti-virus protection. The combination of BroadJump and McAfee.com technology creates additional revenue streams for service providers by enabling seamless marketing and fulfillment of security software.
“Security applications become even more important in a broadband environment because the service is always on, leaving the computer potentially vulnerable,” says Srivats Sampath, president & CEO, McAfee.com. “By joining forces with BroadJump, we are empowering service providers with a tool to market superior and always-up-to-date virus protection and firewall solutions to protect their subscribers from malicious code, hackers and other online threats they might encounter.”
Through this partnership, BroadJump and McAfee.com give service providers the solution they need to seamlessly deliver McAfee.com’s applications to broadband subscribers. BroadJump and McAfee.com are working together to integrate BroadJump’s Virtual Truck® Installer with McAfee.com’s Personal Desktop Firewall and Clinic services. Upon initial activation, BroadJump’s Virtual Truck Installer allows service providers to offer the McAfee.com solution to subscribers. When subscribers select the service, Virtual Truck Installer will facilitate the registration and billing as well as the download and installation of McAfee.com security services. In addition, BroadJump and McAfee.com are working together to integrate BroadJump’s Service Fulfillment solution with McAfee.com’s Personal Firewall and Clinic services. This collaboration will support the marketing and delivery of McAfee.com’s products to service providers’ current and potential subscribers on an ongoing basis.
According to a recently announced study conducted by BroadJump and the Boston Research Group, virus protection and firewalls were the most desired broadband services for which consumers were willing to pay. The integration of BroadJump and McAfee.com solutions makes it easy for service providers to offer and fulfill market-leading security products, taking full advantage of the decreased time to market provided by this partnership.
“Research has proven subscribers are willing to pay for security applications. BroadJump’s partnership with McAfee.com enables service providers to offer and deliver these applications quickly and easily giving them a faster time-to-market advantage,” says Kenny Van Zant, COO of BroadJump. “Ongoing service fulfillment is the next stage of the evolution of the broadband market. BroadJump teams with the best of breed application and content vendors to deliver service providers complete, leading edge solutions that increase revenues over basic connectivity.”

With BroadJump's solutions, service providers can enhance the subscriber experience through intelligent deployment of applications, content and valuable new services.
