Madrid, November 19th, 2018 – Telefónica, announced today the launch of convergent security services which offer browsing security through the Movistar network and on devices, in addition to a secure environment at home with special attention to child audiences. In this way, Telefónica becomes the first operator in the world to offer a service with these characteristics, combining protection on landline and mobile network.
Conexión Segura (Secure Connection) protects both browsing and mobile devices. With Smart WiFi users will be able to manage their home network through an app from anywhere; Movistar Cloud offers unlimited capacity in cloud storage, and Movistar Junior is a peace of mind app to exclusively manage and watch the content kids watch on Movistar+. All these services will be free for Fusión (bundled offering of broadband, mobile and tv) customers.
Conexión Segura has been internally developed by ElevenPaths Telefónica’s cybersecurity unit and Telefónica España teams, together with security market leaders McAfee and Allot, that have intensely collaborated in order to launch the first security convergent offer for residential customers.
Fusión customers will have the connections of both their landline network (including all connected devices at home) and mobile lines associated with their contract protected when navigating through their own Movistar network. In order to enjoy this service free of charge, all customers will have to do is activate it on any of the usual Movistar channels. Management is done by the owner through the conexionsegura.movistar.es website with the same credentials as the movistar.escustomer area.
One of the main attributes of Conexión Segura is that of an immediate and effective protection because it instantly and preventively blocks all malware and fraud threats which may be found when browsing, and instantly informs the user who will be able to decide to continue browsing or keep the blocking.
The service also includes protection for up to five devices for browsing through other networks (for example, public WiFi). Users need to install the Seguridad Dispositivo app to manage this particular safety feature.
Conexión Segura is also offered to non Fusión customers who are just mobile subscribers.
Smart WiFi App: manage your home’s connectivity
The Smart WiFi app, available since 2017, is updated with new features which allow to, among other things, manage and control the home’s Wi-Fi network from anywhere. The Smart WiFi app is compatible with the Smart Wi-Fi Router.
The features that make this update possible are the control of the entire network (with the possibility of denying access to the network or temporarily pausing internet access), the creation of a Wi-Fi password for guests (easy to share and without the need for sharing the usual one), the network’s customisation (change its name and passwords), or the performance of speed tests with recommendations for improving the connection.
It also makes it possible to manage Conexión Segura. Through the app users can check the summary of threats that the service has blocked while browsing through the home’s Wi-Fi network, it manages the number of licenses covered under the Seguridad Dispositivo service and accesses the Conexión Segura management website.
Movistar Cloud, free and unlimited for all Fusión customers
