AT&T Planning To Launch Smartphone Security Service In 2012

Posted May 16, 2011

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) head of enterprise John Stankey was interviewed today and announced that the company is planning a service that protects individual smartphones from malware. The company already has a corporate plan but they expected to offer it for home users in 2012. As smartphones are growing in popularity, it only makes sense that AT&T sees this kind of service as inevitable. “When you start asking [customers] what’s your willingness to pay for a solution, if they’re not a little frightened, their willingness to pay is nothing,” stated Stankey.
