Smart Communications & Security
Communication is getting pretty smart these days and with our Call+ and Message+ apps, that allow for so much more than just words to be shared, we would say we’re pretty adept at embracing this.
And in the same world where security seems to be finding new and unsettling ways of being breached, we want to do all we can to make our customers feel safe. To this effect, we offer Secure Net, network based antivirus/malware protection, device based antivirus protection including device physical security; Ad Management, and network based solution for control of content and digital detox.
Phew, that’s a lot of protection right there.
What do you get when you create a blend of entertainment and information - well, the clue’s in the heading.
Staying ahead of the curve, we offer Pre-Provisioning enablement and management of content partner offers for mobile and fixed customers including Charge To Bill, settlement capabilities for third parties and OTT services to bill via Vodafone. We also offer Backup+, cloud backup and restoration of device content, start, setup and discovery of Vodafone products as well as ID Manager and enabler for seamless registration and login across internal and external services.
