Firm says service will enable operators to protect their networks and subscribers from security threats.
Openwave Guardian forms part of the company's Integra product suite and is available from today.
Openwave says Guardian gives mobile operators the power to protect their networks from viruses and security threats, and to protect their subscribers from inappropriate and unwanted content.
Key functionality includes:
Content access control based on URL category - allows the mobile operator to restrict a user’s access to specific content categories, for example to prevent minors from accessing adult content.
Content type access control - allows the mobile operator to control access to specified content types from a list of approved sites.
Safe Search - allows the mobile operator to automatically activate safe search for minors when using popular search engines from their mobile device
Anti-virus - selective transaction request or response path interception based on a URL and/or content type to perform content analysis to check for the presence of software viruses.
Redirection to splash page - offers the mobile operator a high degree of flexibility when deciding how to communicate to their subscribers following security interception.
Dan Nguyen, VP of product management at Openwave, said: "As more and more subscribers are using their mobile devices to access internet content, operators are under more pressure than ever before to protect their networks and subscribers."
