AdaptiveMobile Shares Vision for “Securing Mobile” at Mobile World Congress 2016

AdaptiveMobile will be sharing its vision for “Securing Mobile” at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, 22-25 February.  As society moves to a hyper-connected future, network infrastructure evolution is accelerating, with the additional demand for application driven services creating a diverse market and an appetite for more storage. Without a clear understanding of the threats facing networks and the right active, comprehensive security controls in place, spammers, scammers, hackers and intelligence agencies will continue to exploit network vulnerabilities – with increasingly serious consequences. Given the current mobile threat landscape, security can no longer be the afterthought, but a critical strategic investment – one that is enabling the multi-billion dollar ecosystem of products and services reliant on the integrity and security of the networks and devices to do business.  Our team of security experts will be at the AdaptiveMobile Meeting Suite, Hall 2 Stand 2B28MR, where we will be showcasing the very latest additions to our portfolio, including SS7 Protection, which is shortlisted for ‘Best Mobile Security or Anti-Fraud Solution’ at the prestigious Global Mobile Awards 2016. 

Securing network, revenues and subscribers

The first comprehensive security overlay for mobile operator signalling infrastructure, AdaptiveMobile SS7 Protection secures mobile operator core networks against privacy and fraud attacks that exploit loopholes in the SS7 signalling protocol, blocking known and emerging threats to restore confidence in the network for consumers and regulators alike.  We will also be showcasing our newly launched Messaging App Security, which enables messaging applications to secure their user base from increasing volume and sophistication of threats.  And, our executive team will be able to share new insight on RCS gained through partnerships with three tier one operators to secure RCS traffic in North America. 

Live demos as well as animated visualisations will show our security innovations in motion, focusing on SMS threats, Grey Routes, Parental Controls and SS7 attacks, addressing the major security questions of the day, including:

  • Given the increasing sophistication of the messaging threat landscape, how can mobile operators protect their subscribers at the network level? 
  • Is IoT secure, or will we see a new wave of security threats that challenge consumer uptake and confidence connected devices in the smart home?  Where does responsibility lie for IoT security?
  • As RCS ‘takes off’, how can carriers proactively secure services and protect users? 
  • How can mobile messaging applications protect themselves from security threats such as phishing spam and reassure their users that new revenue-generating services such as in-app purchasing are safe and secure? 
  • What can operators do to recapture in excess of $3.5 million US dollars per month in missed revenue opportunities? 
  • And most fundamentally of all, is the core of the mobile network itself compromised?

Building New Security Architecture: GSMA Panel

On Thursday 25 February in Hall 4 AdaptiveMobile’s CTO Ciaran Bradley will be adding industry-leading insight to the cyber security debate speaking as part of the session ‘Building new security architecture for a hyper connected future’.  Ciaran will outline the latest developments in mobile security and contribute analysis on the implications of a connected future.  The panel will take place on Thursday 25 February as part of the New Security & Encryption Paradigms session beginning at 2.15pm.
