Voice Fraud, Voice Spam, and CLI Spoofing Protection
Over the past few years, the size of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks doubled, and the number and combination of attack vectors increased significantly. In 2020, 809 million packets per second (Mpps) attack hit a banking organization, making the event the largest packet per second attack ever recorded. Critical services and applications in every industry are rich targets and leave them exposed to downtime and diminished performance if the infrastructure isn’t protected. Attacks can also include hijacking of subscriber equipment, phone call tapping, location tracking, two-factor authentication message interception and additional attack scenarios.
To successfully mitigate these types of attacks, CSPs must deploy proactive controls with real-time machine learning to identify and stop them without impacting legitimate traffic. Deployment of the Mavenir Signaling Firewall helps CSP’s strengthen their security posture as part of their overall robust security strategy. With real-time ML, Mavenir’s Signaling Firewall protection gives CSP’s a 360-degree view of their network, to quickly identify and mitigate malicious traffic without impacts to legitimate network traffic.
Mavenir has a multi-year track record in core network solutions for CSPs. Mavenir Signaling Firewalls have native support for multiple integration scenarios into existing core networks enabling real-time active attack detection and prevention.
Mavenir Signaling Firewall products are fully GSMA compliant, have a low hardware footprint, directly integrate into Mavenir analytics and anti-fraud modules. The Signaling Firewall implements Machine Learning (ML) technology which enables detection of any changes in network behavior and allows alerts to be raised and rogue network elements to be blocked.
Mavenir Signaling Firewall products can protect from security exposures like Denial of Service (DoS) attacks on signaling network elements, DoS attacks on subscriber equipment, phone call tapping, location tracking, two-factor authentication message interception, and other scenarios mentioned in corresponding GSMA recommendations, such as FS.07, FS11, FS19, FS.20, FS.21, IR.82, IR.88 enabling roaming and interconnect security.
Signaling Firewall products are also used for a number of revenue assurance use-cases, e.g. prevention of messaging Application-to-Person (A2P) gray-routes caused by home routing solutions by-pass techniques or direct message delivery based on global signaling network access through Global Title leasing.
