DALLAS and DUBLIN – 28 September 2016 – AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile network security, today announced that it has been selected by a tier-1 mobile network operator (MNO) in APAC to defend against the growing number and complexity of SS7 security threats in the region. As the number of attacks continues to increase, there has been an increased urgency from MNOs to secure their networks to retain subscriber trust and security.
AdaptiveMobile was selected thanks to its market-leading SS7 Signalling Protection product and the ability of the Company to deliver state-of-the-art signalling and messaging protection capabilities from a single, award-winning network security platform. AdaptiveMobile’s Signalling Protection product superiority is underpinned by the world-leading research capabilities of AdaptiveMobile’s Threat Intelligence Unit, providing customers with the latest insight and intelligence on the threats posed to their networks.
Recent research from AdaptiveMobile’s TIU has concluded that SS7 attacks are being launched continuously and sustainably in APAC, which is a major concern to MNOs in the region. These attacks are complex in nature and require sophisticated techniques to uncover, understand and counter. The TIU’s ability to share these unique industry insights and findings helps to strengthen AdaptiveMobile’s value proposition in the market.
“Mobile network operators are rapidly realizing the importance of deploying proven, scalable and advanced security measures to secure their SS7 Networks. We are pleased to be working with an increasing number of operators in the APAC region as they witness the number of SS7 attacks increase and believe this will be a key geography for strategic growth over the next few years,” said Brian Collins, chief executive officer, AdaptiveMobile. “The current mobile security landscape plays to our strengths as we deliver a world-class SS7 security solution to meet the region’s need. In fact, our Signalling Protection product, which encompasses SS7 and Diameter security, has been shortlisted in the Global Telecom Awards for Security Solution of the Year.”
AdaptiveMobile is now strongly positioned to build on this success and further strengthen its position across the entire APAC region through its highly effective channel partner initiative.
Already delivering results, this approach allows AdaptiveMobile to expand more rapidly across the region, reducing sales cycles and ensuring that its market leading signalling and messaging security systems can be implemented at the accelerating pace being demanded by operators to safeguard their subscribers.
