IKARUS Scan Center & A1 Hosted Managed Services

A1 have their own dedicated Treat Detection Center which gives them two major benefits and sales paths. The first is that coupled with their existing connection, mobile internet and mobile broadband users have the benefit of a centralised proxy filtering service. Based on the configuration and settings that A1 set, users can safely surf the internet via the transparent proxy solution.

The second is they have their own Managed cloud security solution, featuring mail, web and Wi-Fi filtering. Everything is conveniently managed via one web interface and all billing and provisioning systems are included which means A1 are fully independent to offer this solution to their clients.

Not only can A1 provide this solution to their enterprise business customers, but they benefit also from the multi-tenancy model. This means they can give certain admin rights to MSPs to manage their own clients, of course for an additional management fee, they can offer rebranded cloud solutions for channel partners, MSPs, end users or anyone who is interested. This certainly broadens the potential opportunities for A1.

Three educational institutions in Ried im Innkreis have one thing in common: they use IKARUS anti.virus as malware protection for their servers and Windows workstations.


"In the event of an incident, every minute counts. The sooner you can get started with targeted measures, the better," Peter Lechner recalls the situation at the time: "Already on the first day after the attack at night, there was a professionally organised crisis meeting with the experts from IKARUS and Mandiant, and we didn't have to wait two or three days for something to happen."

One of the few solutions that was ultimately effective was from IKARUS. The cooperation with IKARUS and the service worked very well.
