Telcos at the security frontline

Telstra and Optus both offer security-as-a-service to enterprise clients but is anyone buying?

Over the years, the range of services offered by telcos has grown rapidly, and in particular there has been increasing interest in providing security services. Telstra and Optus have jumped on this opportunity and have begun offering security-as-a-service (SECaaS), with the aim of combating security threats such as viruses and malware, and detecting and blocking attacks at the network layer.  With mandatory data retention becoming a reality for many Australian telco providers, properly securing that customer data is fast becoming a hard requirement for all providers.
