Magenta and cyan expand their cooperation to include the fixed-line network sector
Munich, May 17, 2021 - Almost 10 years after the announcement of the first contract for cooperation in the area of mobile end customers, Magenta Telekom (T-Mobile Austria GmbH) and cyan are taking the next step.
Following the successful merger of T-Mobile Austria and UPC Austria, the newly created company Magenta Telekom acts as a convergent provider of telecommunications services, TV and entertainment in Austria. In this context, not only the number of Magenta's end customers is growing, but also the need to protect the new customer segment from online threats.
In addition to the already successful product "Internet Protection" for mobile customers, Magenta Telekom will also make the product "Internet Protection Home" available to fixed network customers with immediate effect, all of which are based on cyan's network-integrated technology. Furthermore, the marketing of combined offers for the mobile and fixed network customer segments is planned as a next step, which further underlines Magenta Austria's strong market position as a provider of integrated telecommunications services.
Bruno Duarte, CCO Consumer Magenta Telekom: "Cybersecurity has never been as important as it is today. Cybercrime in Austria has risen by 26 percent during the pandemic when most people were working from home. As a telecommunications provider we want our customers to be safe when using the internet. Therefore, I am very happy to announce a new cybersecurity solution for our fixed line customers, which provides a great deal of safety. Developed by our long-term partner cyan, this solution was built upon their outstanding knowledge and expertise in the cybersecurity area."
