Earlier this week on April 17th, CBS’s 60 Minutes aired a program in USA on how cellphones and mobile operator networks are vulnerable to hacking using security vulnerability in SS7.

We share the concern in the industry about the different security threats in mobile operator networks and we are dedicated to help protecting the mobile operator ecosystem. Our long and solid telecommunications experience in combination with our active participation in multiple regulatory and industry bodies (including fraud forums) and deep understanding of the enterprise market give us the insight needed to secure operator networks.

Last year we launched our Symsoft SS7 Firewall to protect mobile operator networks from potential security threats in the SS7 network. The Symsoft SS7 Firewall protects mobile operator subscribers, services and revenues from SS7 attacks.

Earlier this year we launched Symsoft SS7 Vulnerability Assessment Service to help carriers and mobile network operators to detect any potential weaknesses in their network that could expose subscribers to advanced fraud, hijacked communications and service disruption. Our SS7 Vulnerability Assessment Service is a very effective and powerful way to showcase a complex issue.

If you have any questions or interested to receive additional information, please contact us directly. We are dedicated to protecting you and your subscribers!
