Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain – 22 February 2016 – AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile network security, unveils for the first time unique visualisations of three sophisticated active SS7 tracking platforms being used to track subscriber locations.
AdaptiveMobile has been working with mobile operator networks around the globe to analyse their SS7 network data since launching its SS7 protection in February of 2015. The visualisations unveiled today at Mobile World Congress show how sophisticated packet combinations, multiple origination points and a range of attack possibilities are being used to track the location of subscribers around the world. The research reveals specific examples, including evidence of a global SS7 monitoring platform executing near-simultaneous surveillance attacks from many countries on four continents over a time span of two minutes and twenty seconds in an attempt to track one specific subscriber.
“Subscribers around the world are being tracked through sophisticated attacks to the SS7 network,” said Brian Collins, CEO, AdaptiveMobile. “The increasing levels of complexity of these attacks should be of concern to operator networks; simplistic STP screening is no longer sufficient to counteract this level of attack sophistication and safeguard the mobile subscriber.”
To learn more about the sophisticated location tracking platforms and AdaptiveMobile’s SS7 Security Protection, nominated for “Best Mobile Security or Anti-Fraud Product” at the Global Mobile Awards, visit AdaptiveMobile at MWC in Hall 2, 2B28MR.
