Ericsson: Intel® Security collaborates with Ericsson to bring managed security to telecom operators

* Agreement combines Ericsson's managed services expertise, global delivery
capability and network security expertise with Intel® Security's broad
portfolio of consumer and enterprise security solutions
* Telecom operators provide regulatory compliance expertise and the ability
to bundle communications services with security
* Initially, managed intrusion prevention system services, e-mail security
and web security solutions will be available

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and Intel Security are working together to make
managed security solutions available for telecom operators to bundle with the
existing services they provide to enterprises. Combining Ericsson's managed
services expertise, global delivery capability and network security expertise
with Intel Security's broad portfolio of consumer and enterprise security
solutions will enable enterprises to strengthen their security posture.

From the enterprise perspective, telecom operators will contribute their
regulatory compliance expertise, ability to combine communications services
with security, and local response capabilities. Initially, intrusion
prevention system services, e-mail security and web security solutions will
be available.

By supporting networks that connect more than 2.5 billion subscribers and
carry more than 40 percent of the world's mobile traffic, Ericsson is helping
to realize a truly Networked Society. Increased connectivity is unlocking
massive value for people, business and society, but also exposing us all to
new potential risks. Together with Intel Security, Ericsson aims to make it
easier for telecom operators to support their enterprise clients in
protecting valuable intellectual property, data, devices, and identities.

Chris Young, Senior Vice President and GM of Intel Security, says:
"Telecommunications networks are a critical component of the economic and
social infrastructures that we rely upon. Together, Intel Security and
Ericsson are working to keep the well over three billion people across the
globe that use these systems safe and secure."

Jean-Claude Geha, Vice President and Head of Managed Services at Ericsson,
says: "Intel Security has an exceptional, end-to-end consumer and enterprise
security product portfolio. Ericsson is the leader in telecom managed
services with the scale, skills and people required to make Intel's security
solutions available to telecom operators around the world. Together, we will
be able to provide exceptional managed security solutions to telecom
operators."

Today, Ericsson is the global leader in telecommunications managed services.
Operations for multiple operators are managed through Global Network
Operation Centers and a field service organization. Ericsson employs 65,000
services professionals in 180 countries, and provides managed services for
networks that serve one billion subscribers worldwide. Increasingly, Ericsson
uses its global managed services expertise in market segments other than
telecommunications - and IT is one of the company's focus areas.
