We are happy to be the first company to offer our business customers more than just an antivirus software with a policy customization option: what we present is the first solution that lets you control the mobile device protection settings in terms of malware-infected files, high-profile network attacks, phishing, and zero-day vulnerability. The threat detection is enabled through our partner Check Point’s solutions,’ says Enterprise Marketing Director at MegaFon Pavel Zakharov.
