TELEFÓNICA ARGENTINA LAUNCHES AI/ML-BASED SIGNALING FIREWALL FROM MAVENIR TO PROTECT SS7 AND DIAMETER-BASED SIGNALING

AUTHORED BY: Mavenir

AI/ML-BASED SOLUTION, COUPLED WITH ANTI-SPAM ALREADY LAUNCHED, PROVIDES PROTECTION AND IMPROVED SERVICE FOR ARGENTINA MOVISTAR CUSTOMERS.

RICHARDSON, TX, October 2, 2019 – Mavenir, a leader in accelerating software network transformation and transforming mobile network economics for communications service providers (CSPs), and Telefónica Argentina have deployed its Signaling Firewall to protect its customers and signaling infrastructure by detecting and preventing signaling-based attacks. The signaling fraud solution prevents the network from signaling hacks, distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS), protects customer information from being intercepted and improves user experience.  Denying stacks also protects operator resources from being used unnecessarily and even from overload conditions that shouldn’t exist (high capacity and distributed attacks).

The deployment of a signaling firewall in the Telefónica Argentina network will handle SS7 and Diameter-based signaling coming in from abroad and other networks.

Mavenir’s solution enables Telefónica Argentina to protect their customers and the network from potential hackers while tracing their origin. The Signaling Firewall with its intuitive GUI and reporting capabilities allows Telefónica Argentina to stay ahead of the potential threats and provide sufficient level of protection to their customers. In addition, Mavenir SMART (Security Management and Response Team) team is helping to interpret the signaling data, attack suspects and enforce blocking rules.

“We are excited to support Telefónica Argentina and their commitment to protecting customer security through the implementation of our entire security portfolio,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir.  “By adding the Signaling Firewall to the existing solutions in place protecting customers against fraud, privacy attacks, phone-call and messaging interceptions, Telefónica has best-in-class network security using AI and machine learning (ML) to continually evolve and better protect their customers.”

“We have a long-standing relationship with Telefónica Argentina, having launched the Anti-Spam solution and now the follow-on with Signaling security,” said Ilia Abramov, GM Security BU at Mavenir.  “So now Telefónica Argentina has our complete suite of security products and we are committed to providing protection to Telefónica Argentina signaling networks for the current generation of networks as well as supporting evolution towards next generation architectures.”

Mavenir’s Signaling Firewall is one of the most mature Signaling Firewall products in the market and includes high speed signaling stacks, intuitive GUI for the filtering and detection rules as well as elements of machine learning for the detection and prevention of the complicated distributed attacks. Built-in reporting capability enables constant insight into the signaling traffic of mobile operator, that not only enables better understanding of detected attack nature but also helps improve operational KPIs and subscriber QoS.

Mavenir was selected for its expertise and knowledge of implementing and deploying security solutions and supporting services.
