NetQin Mobile Inc., a provider of consumer mobile security and productivity applications, has selected Pacnet, an independent telecommunications service provider, to enhance its network infrastructure and boost the delivery of its products and services across Asia and the United States.
“Mobile security threats are set to escalate as more Internet-connected mobile devices proliferate across the market. As one of the first companies in the world to recognize smartphone security risks, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the turnkey solutions they need to secure their mobile devices,” said Dr Henry Lin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NetQin. “Hence, we demand a powerful network with high availability to support our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business model.”
“We chose Pacnet for its global reach, proven scalability and reliability, which we believe will give us both the network performance and stability that will enable us to grow our presence globally and take our business to the next level,” said Dr Lin.
The deal enables NetQin to utilize a range of Pacnet services including IP Transit, co-location, managed services and Ethernet International Private Leased Line (EIPL) Service, in China, Hong Kong and the United States, so as to further extend NetQin’s market reach across Asia Pacific and the United States as it expands and enhances its industry-leading threat monitoring capabilities.
“Today’s web-enabled businesses are highly dependent on efficient and reliable network services to bring to the market unrivaled solutions for consumers and enterprises alike,” said Bill Barney, Chief Executive Officer of Pacnet. “Our next-generation infrastructure will ensure the smooth and seamless distribution of cutting-edge mobile security solutions that will provide better protection and performance to NetQin’s customers.”
Pacnet’s efficient and resilient network will also provide NetQin’s headquarters in Beijing with rapid access to data from its recently opened Security Research Center based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the United States, speeding up the early detection of mobile security threats.
“We are delighted that NetQin is able to leverage our services to more effectively manage their business, and ultimately, better serve their customers with first-class threat monitoring tools,” said Lily Zhang, Managing Director of Pacnet China. “Pacnet is committed to connecting more China-based businesses to the world through our extensive global subsea network footprint and leadership as the premier IP network provider in the region.”
Pacnet’s IP Transit service provides carriers and software companies with one-hop global connectivity to major Internet peering points and content providers, delivering a truly global IP infrastructure. Pacnet also offers advanced data center facilities including Data Landing Stations that offer direct access to Pacnet’s EAC-C2C subsea cable, Asia’s largest privately owned subsea network.
