DALLAS and DUBLIN – June 23, 2015 – AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile security, today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Security, 2015” report by Gartner, Inc. The report evaluates technology providers “with security platforms geared toward fixed and mobile networks, and those that can provide security intelligence1.” Gartner’s report further states that “…security threats within the [Communications Service Provider] (CSP) space continue to grow, and CSPs need solutions provided by vendors with visibility into their network behaviour and security intelligence1.”
“We believe it is a validation of AdaptiveMobile’s unique mobile threat intelligence and globally-deployed network protection platform that the Company has been recognised as a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’ this year”, said Brian Collins, CEO of AdaptiveMobile. “As the mobile threat landscape continues to become more aggressive and complex, AdaptiveMobile’s unrivalled position sitting in the heart of over 75 communication service provider networks worldwide, witnessing over 30 billion mobile events per day enables us to identify, protect and remediate against the widest range of threats attacking mobile networks. With a strong history of innovation, the Company is also focussed on sharing its mobile threat intelligence with adjacent markets including financial institutions and global internet brands, enabling them to reduce fraud by leveraging the exclusive characteristics of mobile identity.”
The report also identifies the need for CSPs to “explore new security data and threat analysis offerings that can protect your own network and can also be leveraged to provide security as a service1”. In 2015 AdaptiveMobile launched its SS7 Protection Product and Grey Route Controls Service – providing communication service providers with state of the art protection to secure their networks and protect and grow new revenue streams.
Currently protecting over 1.3 billion of the world’s mobile subscribers, the AdaptiveMobile Network Protection Platform is carrier grade software scaling from under 1 million subscribers to over 200 million in a single deployment, integrating into the broadest set of network infrastructures, covering messaging and web as well as emerging strategic services such as RCS and IMS. The AdaptiveMobile Network Protection Platform has been deployed in massive-scale virtualised environments and is being future proofed through membership of the HP OpenNFV programme and the Intel Network Builders programme.
