How It Works
Subscriber bases are more often than not spoofed by malware and fraudulent SMS messages, in turn encouraging subscribers to call back premium-charge numbers, or sending unauthorized texts without the subscriber’s knowledge or consent. These attacks generate significant revenue streams for cybercriminal networks.
The Mylinex SMS Firewall identifies promotional or spam messages in near real-time, with a rule engine that applies advanced algorithms with any combination of the below parameters and wildcard configurations:
Sender address type (Alphanumeric)
Sender center address
Sender address in the SCCP layer
Sender network or country
A phrase in the content
These identified messages are then blocked, controlled or screened as necessary, providing the operator network full control of SMS traffic.
