Omnisperience’s View

This deal with Claro Chile shows that CCAPS is an important value-adding solution for CSPs across the globe and is not limited to just Europe and North America. As developing markets are connected to the Internet and embrace the potential of services such as streaming media and IoT their vulnerability to threats increases as does their requirement for an easy-to-use, seamless and affordable solution to protect their homes, activities and their loved ones. This type of value-adding service has huge potential in LATAM to generate revenue for service providers and differentiate their offer from rivals, while at the same time assuring customers’ digital experience and digital confidence.
