New report names company as leading Signalling Firewall supplier
Independent report is based on mobile operator evaluation
Independent research by Telecom specialists Rocco, has placed fast-growing UK company Evolved Intelligence as the market leader for mobile network signalling security firewalls based on feedback from mobile operators worldwide.
Signalling Firewalls protect mobile networks and their customers from the threat of fraud, safeguard personal data, and prevent unauthorised call diversions and location tracking via the malicious use of the mobile signalling network.
Evolved Intelligence, based in Bristol, is one of the market’s biggest Signalling Firewall suppliers. It is enabling operators, including two of the largest global mobile network groups, to protect their subscribers in multiple countries around the world.
Rocco’s research was carried out in the last quarter of 2017. Participants included mobile operators in nearly 50 countries and covered more than 20 potential vendors of signalling security.
Based on the feedback from the 57 operators who were using signalling firewalls, only three vendors worldwide - including Evolved Intelligence - earned Tier One ranking from Rocco. To earn Tier One, the vendors had to score a minimum of four marks out of five across every one of the 30 different categories assessed in the research.
Evolved Intelligence took the top spot by scoring highest across all the categories. Rocco’s report quotes one mobile operator as describing Evolved Intelligence as “the specialists in the field” and saying that it receives “first class support” from the company.
Delighted with the report findings, Product Director Stephen Buck said “At Evolved Intelligence our aim is to provide innovative solutions with market-leading features supported by experts in the field. It’s great that MNO’s have recognised and value our approach and have provided such positive feedback on the product features, UI flexibility and analytics as well as the reliability, quality and expertise we provide.
“The power and flexibility of our solution - which has features that take it far beyond the GSMA recommendation - can be implemented easily to accommodate local needs or to rapidly deal with a threat. The solution appeals to individual MNO’s, our interconnect partners and also to operator groups who benefit from the additional functionality of being able to manage different rules and country-specific threats from a centralised location,” he explained.
Buck added: “Every day Evolved Intelligence handles some 12 billion signalling messages across global mobile networks, and we have become acknowledged experts at allowing the safe while preventing the potentially harmful. That’s why operators trust our signalling firewall to protect their customers and network from the fraudsters.”
