At Evolved Intelligence we believe that a firewall to manage malicious signalling going into and out of your network is essential. For a mobile operator, protecting the network and subscribers from privacy breaches, fraud and spam is paramount in order to prevent lost revenue, fines and claims for damages, all of which can have dire consequences for brand reputation and consumer loyalty. Regulators aware of the threat posed to national communication networks are demanding that operators ensure adequate protection is in place.
We offer a proven, multi-protocol Signalling System No. 7 (SS7) & Diameter Signalling Firewall which draws on our extensive experience in both telecoms and banking. We are able to clearly distinguish between legitimate and malicious signalling, providing your network with the means to take appropriate action and keep subscribers safe.
We are the market’s leading Signalling Firewall supplier and are currently enabling two of the largest global mobile network groups to protect their subscribers in multiple countries around the world. In addition, our SMS Firewall Solution is currently supoorting a major Tier 1 operator group.
Our Signalling Firewall is a result of our 10-year heritage in understanding and managing SS7 messages in both roaming VAS and banking. Processing many billions of messages every day has given us profound insight into signalling messages so we can accurately identify and separate unusual but legitimate messages from malicious ones.
We have a long and successful history of solving problems for our customers using our innovative architecture, cloud based managed services and patented solutions supported by signalling experts.
