Telstra signs broadband security deal with Mako Networks

The telco will bundle Mako’s network appliances with a business broadband package

Telstra (ASX: TLS) will be offering business customers a broadband connection package which includes secure Internet access and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance later this year.

The package includes Mako Network’s appliances and services as part of a new agreement between the two companies. According to the vendor, the networking appliances feature an optional wireless failover service.

If there is a network outage, the failover service will re-route and connect to the Internet using a high-speed wireless signal. This service will be included in the Telstra customer’s monthly fees.

Telstra chief procurement officer Richard Allen said that the broadband package was developed because it takes customer privacy "very seriously."

“We are always looking at ways to improve our security systems and will continue to invest in security capabilities," he said in a statement.

Telstra has been contacted for comment by Computerworld Australia.
