@STAKE TACKLES MOBILE NETWORK SECURITY FOR ONE 2 ONE Monday 21 January 2002 PDF Print Security experts to provide consultancy, testing and training for mobile telecommunications provider @stake (http://www.atstake.com), the world's largest independent digital security consultancy, today announced it will work with One 2 One, the UK network of T-Mobile International ? a leading worldwide provider of mobile telecommunications services, to help protect the company's mobile network from digital attack. @stake and One 2 One have entered into a long-term strategic relationship within which @stake's experts will offer high-level security consultancy, perform security assessments and train One 2 One staff on the latest security techniques. The services @stake will provide One 2 One include strategic consultancy on securing its General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) network. As part of this service, @stake will perform a high-level architectural assessment on One 2 One's GPRS network, offering recommendations on continually building a secure network at the design stage so that security is inherent from the outset. @stake will also perform rigorous penetration testing on the company's GPRS network and will help prepare One 2 One's networks for digital forensics ? the process of identifying, preserving, extracting and documenting electronic evidence in the event of an attempted attack. Avi Corfas, executive vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, @stake, commented, "With the advent of next generation mobile networks, such as GPRS and 3rd Generation technologies, more and more people will be looking to use the wireless Internet for tasks they currently perform over their personal computer. This movement of transactions from the desktop to the handset will mean sensitive data travelling over a new, potentially hostile network, where vulnerabilities are only just beginning to be mapped out." Corfas continued, "The issues surrounding wireless security are simply not understood by the vast majority of companies implementing mobile commerce strategies. @stake has identified key exposure areas common to all wireless platforms which leave wireless networks open to attack. The return on investment made on securing wireless networks, protecting sensitive information from interception and customers from fraudulent use, is substantial and readily measurable. However, each company's security demands are unique. We will work together with One 2 One to identify the risks specific to their mobile and corporate networks, helping them make intelligent, business-driven decisions about the company's security requirements." -ends- About @stake @stake works where business and technology intersect, because that is where security is most powerful.
