Laptop security partnership established with BT

Alcatel-Lucent : 27 February, 2009  (Company News)
BT Global Services and Alcatel-Lucent team up to provide assistance to organizations wanting to protect employee laptops on the move
Alcatel-Lucent has announced a strategic relationship with BT Global Services, a world-leading provider of networked IT services.

The relationship will enable BT Global Services to deliver advanced protection for data held on laptop computers, based on Alcatel-Lucent's award-winning laptop security technology, which virtually eliminates the risk of a mobile data breach by allowing organisations to remotely secure, monitor, manage and locate mobile computers. Alcatel-Lucent's technology ensures that if a laptop is reported lost or stolen, all data held on the device can be immediately and automatically destroyed, even if the computer is turned off. It also enables organisations to take remote control of any laptop in order to apply security patches or track its location.

'With any remote access solution, security is paramount. Using Alcatel-Lucent's laptop protection technology, we can ensure that BT MobileXpress customers' laptop data is always secure and manageable, and if machines are lost or stolen, that data is inaccessible to unauthorised users,' said Rakesh Mahajan, head of mobility marketing, BT Global Services. 'This will help organisations' strengthen and simplify the security and management of laptop computers used by their mobile employees, enabling them to reap the full benefits of flexible working.'

'Laptop Protection from BT MobileXpress', powered by Alcatel-Lucent, has been incorporated into the BT MobileXpress product portfolio, and ensures that employees have access to key applications and information from their laptops at all times, without compromising the security of sensitive data. The BT MobileXpress portfolio, typically used by organisations with more than 100 mobile employees, provides secure remote access technology solutions to underpin Work Anywhere, the BT suite of solutions that enable flexible working.

'Organisations recognise the need to overcome the 'mobile blindspot', the point at which enterprises have no visibility or control over the location, use or configuration of employee laptops, and they are looking for a solution that helps them retain control over their sensitive data at all times to accommodate the needs of a mobile workforce,' said Tom Eggemeier, general manager of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise sales in Western Europe. 'Our strategic relationship with BT solves this problem, allowing organisations to equip their mobile employees with a complete range of mobile working solutions, while eliminating the risk of company data falling into the wrong hands.'

'Laptop Protection from BT MobileXpress' is available now in the UK, and is targeted for launch in Spring 2009 in Benelux, France and Germany, with further launches planned.
