AdaptiveMobile Messaging App Security

With the momentum created by building large communities of users, Messaging App Providers are looking to monetize through product expansion, beyond simple stickers, emoticons and games, and into even more lucrative areas such as social networking, ecommerce platforms and search. This massive opportunity is evidenced by the number of major acquisitions that have already taken place in the industry.

However, with the incredible popularity of Messaging Apps comes the risk of threats crossing over from conventional text messaging; this next logical step for spammers and fraudsters has already begun and may disrupt the huge opportunity open to App Providers. App Providers need to address this threat head on, with a best-in-class, proven and scalable approach.

Using traffic controls, user reputation and advanced threat detection algorithms, the Messaging App Security solution, available using the AdaptiveMobile Network Protection Platform (NPP), allows App Providers to identify and block both new and cross-over threats, enabling the use of their Apps to grow unhindered and reach their full potential.

Product Benefits

AdaptiveMobile Messaging App Security can be used for the following purposes:

Prevention of Spam and Phishing Threats
  • New and cross-over spam and phishing messages are becoming increasingly prevalent as Messaging App providers begin succeeding in growing their user communities.
Prevention of Financial Scams, Data Theft and Fraud
  • As App Providers develop into more complex social networking, e-payment and business services, more sophisticated financial scams, data theft and fraud are becoming a major concern.
Prevention of Privacy and Spying
  • With the goal of “platformisation” leading to very high value services for Apps such as front end device operation, search, and ecommerce platforms, a messaging app will gain access to users’ personal identifiable information (PII), and so the risk of privacy and spying grow considerably. These threats will require the more advanced capabilities of the AdaptiveMobile Network Protection Platform (NPP).
Parental Controls
  • Parents are faced with threats to children such as dangerous contacts, App use overdose and cyber bullying. The solution addresses threats affecting this fast growing demographic for messaging Apps and allows App Providers to competitively differentiate for faster uptake and a stickier user base.
