SMS Firewall

03 sms firewall

SMS fraud and spam continue on the rise, with unauthorised parties bypassing standard interconnections and sending unwanted SMS traffic to mobile subscribers.
As mobile operators open up more roaming and SMS agreements and connect new providers of messaging applications, they expose themselves to an increased risk of fraud and spamming.

Fraudsters and spammers are finding every day new opportunities for bypassing standard interconnections and delivering messages to mobile subscribers without any extensive control.
