17 March 2022 – With hybrid work increasingly the norm, Thai businesses are feeling the heat from a rise in cyber crime. Last year, 56% of cyber threats in Thailand occurred via vulnerabilities in mobile devices.
To combat these threats, dtac Business has launched dtac Mobile Security, a new solution that helps SMEs protect important business information and personal data from cyber threats including phishing. dtac Mobile Security offers real-time protection with hourly virus and spam definition updates. Unlike most other security solutions, dtac Mobile Security is not an additional app but rather a convenient add-on feature built into internet connectivity via the dtac network.
Existing dtac Business clients will be notified via SMS about an automatic free trial beginning 17 March 2022. New Business clients who join 17 March – 17 May 2022 will also receive the dtac Mobile Security add-on. After the complimentary two months, the dtac Mobile Security add-on service will start at 29 Baht per subscription per month.
