Deutsche Telekom Enlists AI Security for Company Devices

Deutsche Telekom Uses APPVISORY to Make Mobile Working More Secure says Sebastian Wolters, APPVISORY CEO & Klaus Werner, MD of Deutsche Telekom Business

Listed as one of Mobile Magazine’s top telco companies, Deutsche Telekom is one of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies. With an annual net revenue of €24.5bn (US$26.7bn) in 2022, up by 1.9 % year-on-year, it is one of the largest telco companies in the world. Headquartered in Germany, The telco offers fixed line services, mobile communication services and internet services and operates several subsidiaries worldwide, including mobile communications brand T-Mobile.

AI defence for the world’s leading telco

In a recent move from the telco giant, Deutsche Telekom has enlisted the support of technology supported by artificial intelligence (AI) to scan apps for vulnerabilities before and after installation to defend against attacks on cell phones and tablets.

The APPVISORY Secure App Check service automatically checks applications for security and data protection, providing a defence to the security risk that apps pose for businesses. German network operators reported 15 million malware infections to the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) last year, highlighting the threat — apps can be used to smuggle viruses, trojans or blackmail software into the company network.

"The security of mobile workplaces doesn't allow for a break,” explains Klaus Werner, Managing Director of Deutsche Telekom Business Customers. 

“The app landscape on service devices can no longer be patched manually in good time. We therefore rely on AI-supported solutions such as APPVISORY to support our customers with cyber defence in real time."

Mobiles increasing targeted by hackers

As flexible, hybrid, or fully remote working is increasingly used, mobile phones and laptops are being targeted as the hub of company information. This, teamed with the increased use of mobile devices as payment options, makes mobiles a valuable target. 

In 2022, 90% of Germans used an app for payment, with 90% of spam emails in the same year attacking banking transactions according to the BSI. 

The APPVISORY service uses AI to warn users of potential attacks on devices, to prevent scams and defend payments and information. 

"APPVISORY is now part of Deutsche Telekom's portfolio,” shares Sebastian Wolters, APPVISORY CEO. 

“Business customers can use the service quickly and easily. Together we are making mobile working more secure.”
