Mobile devices and technologies are commonplace in our business and personal lives. We know that they are insecure due to the vulnerabilities of the networks that they connect to. Protection can only be provided by deploying intelligence-led threat detection and response.
Trust is no longer a viable way of securing your network.
Widely used Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) are used by advanced threat actors to spoof identities, track locations, intercept calls, launch phishing attacks and other security attacks. Attackers have already penetrated the global mobile infrastructure. No network technology is secure including 3G, 4G and even future 5G technologies.
Network equipment manufacturers have failed to deliver adequate security as part of their platforms and cannot be entrusted with this responsibility. The situation is made worse by an over dependency on trust between mobile network operators. Zero trust enforced by managed signalling and messaging firewalls using curated threat intelligence, offer the only way to stay ahead of attackers.
To win this battle against advanced threat actors, your infrastructure will be continually tested for weaknesses, security will be defined by your ability to effectively manage and maintain the integrity of your defences. It is critical that mobile network operators prioritize and respond to security attacks effectively and efficiently leveraging global threat intelligence.
AdaptiveMobile Security provides the solution:
Mobile network attacks not only affect operators’ subscribers, who could be subject to financial fraud, identity theft, location tracking or worse.
It seriously impacts mobile network operators with consequences such as:
Signalling networks and services originally designed as a closed network for a select and trusted group of mobile network operators are now being accessed by an ever-increasing number of interconnected parties, mobile network operators, A2P, IoT/M2M, value-added-service providers with international or state ownership. This new reality has demanded a zero-trust approach to be taken for many years to prevent threat actors from using global signalling networks to exploit nations, networks, and individuals.
