3 Hong Kong, the mobile division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong, has launched a series of mobile applications for corporate staff handling sensitive business information on their own mobile devices. According to 3 Hong Kong, these apps allow corporate employees in any industry to securely work via mobile devices anytime, anywhere.

3 Hong Kong has partnered with Check Point to launch SandBlast Mobile, a mobile device security solution for large enterprises. SandBlast Mobile users will be able to keep a track record in detecting and apprehending malware delivered by Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) email, as well as social and drive-by exploits aimed at iOS and Android devices.   The platform also detects malicious Wi-Fi networks and apps by using a “threat-emulation” process by which advanced static code analysis is conducted to explore an app’s reputation and machine learning. A cloud-based dashboard provides security and mobility teams with real-time threat intelligence, as well as visibility into the nature of threats likely to launch attacks. Users are alerted the instant a threat is detected.

3 Hong Kong will cooperate with Check Point to launch the ‘ZoneAlarm’ service. This will extend the service from large corporations to corporate staff. The service offers a multi-layered approach to protect mobile devices. The service alerts users to infected applications, while protecting operating systems from attack, via features that perform scans and updates to the system. The service also detects unsafe Wi-Fi and ranks hotspots according to security level to prevent users from connecting to malicious wireless networks.

3 Hong Kong has also partnered with BlackBerry to launch BlackBerry Workspaces. Workers can access content anytime from anywhere and share files inside and outside their organisation. BlackBerry Workspaces enables customers to synchronise and control sharing rights, while accessing the latest and previous versions of documents and files across mobile platforms that include iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows and Mac. Workspaces also supports various deployment solutions for customers including cloud, servers in their offices, or hybrid models depending on need.

3 Hong Kong has collaborated with IPC to launch the Enterprise Mobile Recording Solution, so financial corporations can meet internal and external regulations. This SIM-based service prohibits end-users from deactivating the record function, in accordance with internal regulations. The record function is activated automatically whenever a call connects. The platform allows customers to choose whether they save such recordings on a company server or in the cloud, for management and retrieval.
