Comviva Partners with AdaptiveMobile to Bring Next Wave in Mobile Messaging
– Operators can now leverage monitoring and advanced security techniques to protect their mobile subscribers, network and business
Kenya/Nigeria – January 21, 2013: Comviva, the global leader in providing mobile VAS solutions, today announced that it has engaged AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile security, to provide operators with the most comprehensive network-based web and message content filtering solution. This collaboration will help operators to leverage monitoring and advanced security techniques to protect their network, subscribers and enterprise customers against the growing threat of mobile abuse.
The web and message content filtering function will allow service providers to perform a complex assessment of the content of messages and data, looking for specific text combinations or even the content type (music and picture files). AdaptiveMobile’s content filtering techniques will add another element of control over spam to further manage unwanted messages and operators will have the most comprehensive solution for identifying and preventing fraudulent SMS/MMS and spam.
Speaking on the collaboration, Manoranjan Mohapatra, CEO, Comviva said, “With the ever increasing spam messages from unregistered telemarketers, mobile users are tired of unsolicited/pesky text messages. Therefore operators need to continue to focus on keeping the SMS channel clean to protect users from unwanted messages. With this collaboration Comviva will integrate AdaptiveMobile’s message content filtering solution with its SMS platform and web content filtering solution with its Mobile Data platform.”
Brian Collins, CEO, AdaptiveMobile commented, “We are excited to be working with one of the global leaders in mobile data and messaging solutions on this important initiative. Text messaging, the most widely used mobile data service today is under attack with SMS spam, spoofing and other SMS-related scams and network congestion has become a major concern for service providers. We trust this integrated solution will help them address their network security problem and help them grow their revenues.”
