Pair recognised by GSMA for 'Best Mobile Safeguard and Security Service' at Mobile World Congress 2013
Developer of roaming, messaging and networking products, Syniverse, and provider of mobile security, AdaptiveMobile, have announced they have been jointly recognised with the GSMA Global Mobile Award for 'Best Mobile Safeguard and Security Service' at Mobile World Congress 2013.
The award is for Messaging Trust, a mobile security solution developed by Syniverse and AdaptiveMobile to protect end users from advanced SMS spam and fraud threats, so helping mobile service providers deliver high quality end user experiences.
Messaging Trust is a network-based protection solution that a mobile service provider can provide across its end user base without requiring individual downloads or configuration.
Unlike traditional ISP and enterprise security products, the Messaging Trust platform provides an accurate analysis of traffic in order to identify the sources of fraud and spam within mobile networks where the majority of traffic is legitimate and potentially revenue generating. Integrating Messaging Trust with Syniverse's platforms, which currently process more than two billion messages per day in the US alone, creates a cost effective solution.
'SMS is often regarded as a trusted form of instant communication, so protecting this channel from spam and fraud is vital to both end users and mobile service providers,' said Todd Boerner, senior vice president for messaging at Syniverse. 'Empowering our customers to provide a safe, high quality end user experience is our top priority, and this Global Mobile Award is a testament to our dedication.'
Added Brian Collins, CEO at AdaptiveMobile: 'We are delighted to be recognized as a leading global provider of mobile security solutions. This both validates our success to date and confirms the future direction of our joint proposition for the sector. Mobile security is evolving fast and we have created Messaging Trust in conjunction with Syniverse to preserve the cleanliness of the mobile messaging channel without interfering with, or slowing down, legitimate traffic.
'Mobile messaging is a trusted channel, and technologies that ensure high quality end user experiences further position all types of mobile ecosystem players for long term success,' concluded Collins.
