“[…] With Secucloud’s cloud-based security solution, our customers are protected from internet threats and do not need to worry about installing or constantly updating software. This convenience is exactly what our customers expect from us.”
“[…] It’s just not possible to protect each device individually – instead, efficient protection needs to be centralised and delivered from the cloud. We recognised this requirement some time ago and have developed the security service in partnership with Secucloud to protect our customers against increasing IoT-based threats.”
“We have a lot of respect for our customers’ sense of responsibility. Rather than limit that, we’re making the Secucloud service available to them as a high-performance tool that helps them use the internet more securely and with more awareness.”
“[…] the solution is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do: secure our users’ online experience quietly and effectively in the background without them having to limit their web surfing or even notice the shield in action.”
“We decided on secucloud in April 2015 from a shortlist of possible vendors. All secucloud’s security functions are located in the cloud, so there’s no longer any need for software installed locally on the devices. That means users are protected all the time – with no effort.”
