Deploys signalling firewall to prevent malicious activity

Bristol, March 13th 2017: Evolved Intelligence today announced that it is working with a rapidly growing operator in the Middle East to secure its network from malicious SS7 signalling.

The company said it was now working with many operators – including a Tier One European operator group – to secure their networks from SS7 attacks.

The Evolved Intelligence Signalling Firewall protects operator networks against all SS7 attacks defined by the GSMA in FS11 and IR82, including protection against spoofing and consistency checks and those that require stateful (category 3) information based on last known location and velocity. It also allows for sophisticated blacklisting or whitelisting by address, opcode and numerous other parameters.

Announcing the latest contract win, Product Director Steve Buck said: ‘With our approach and experience, operators are reassured that our Signalling Firewall will differentiate between malicious and legitimate signalling and only allow genuine messages to pass through. This secures their networks without damaging their revenues’.

The company’s intuitive management dashboard gives operators a graphical view of the threat status. Its powerful analytics allow threats to be analysed and configurable rules with multiple parameters allow new vulnerabilities and frauds to be quickly neutralised.

Evolved Intelligence’s unique architecture means it can provide cost-effective, flexible deployment options for both the SS7 and Diameter signalling firewall, including remote hosted or turnkey solutions.

‘For this Middle Eastern customer’, explained Commercial Director Peter Blackie, ‘we have installed the firewall directly into their network. But in other situations, we have delivered a managed service hosted by Evolved Intelligence or by one of our globally-established signalling partners’.
