Atlanta, GA, April 27th 2011 –NetSTAR, Inc., a leading supplier of Internet content filtering technologies announces the
completion of a global licensing agreement with Mobile Active Defense, the Smartphone Security Company. NetSTAR will offer its
Asia-Pacific (APAC) Region customers complete mobile enterprise security and compliance for iPhones, iPads, and other smartphones
and tablet devices beginning in Q2 2011.
Under the terms of the agreement, Mobile Active Defense will provide NetSTAR with their award-winning enterprise-grade
smartphone security solution, the Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security Server (MECS). NetSTAR, which services all mobile
network operators in Japan and holding one of the largest presences in the corporate market nationwide, will be hosting their own
private-branded MECS servers for the APAC region. They will further integrate their own filtering technologies, which hold an
overwhelming share of the APAC corporate market and the vast majority of the filtering market in Japan.
The MECS Server extends existing enterprise and network security policies across mobile platforms with device lock-down, always-on
CA-based and enforced VPN encryption, granular policy driven firewall controls that automatically adjust based upon the physical
location of the mobile device and a suite of content filtering and device management tools, anti-virus and malware eradication. The
patent pending Application Access Control™ (AAC) detects known hostile apps and “apps behaving badly” on the device. In addition
to the jailbreaking detection and automatic remediation processes, the MECS server offers the most comprehensive mobile security
available today.
According to NetSTAR’s Executive Director, Akira Nakayama: “The MECS technology is ideal for us. By collaborating with Mobile
Active Defense we have created the optimal solution to protect enterprises and consumers with the utmost safety across the widest
range of mobile platforms. We have the finest filtering technology to make the Internet safer for companies, schools and homes, now
with Mobile Active Defense we can offer our corporate customers so much more; a completely secure and safe mobile environment.”
According to Winn Schwartau, Chairman of Mobile Active Defense: "NetSTAR has a long successful history of providing internet
safety to their multi-national customers with the most comprehensive filtering lists and engines available. With the addition of MECS’s
powerful mobile security technology, NetSTAR will leapfrog the industry in the APAC region. This is a very exciting time for both of
NetSTAR expects a fast adaption of the new solution by their corporate customers across dozens of countries that have a definitive
need to answer and address their mobile security problems.
Nakayama continued by saying, "NetSTAR began working filtering services for mobile phones for social contribution and has already
been adopted by all domestic mobile network operators. With Mobile Active Defense, we now extend enterprise-level security to
smartphones and tablets across our customers’ far flung mobile enterprises.”
