The industry leader in providing mobile messaging security solutions

Cloudmark Cloud for Mobile offers a robust security service providing protection from spam, phishing, smishing, and other nefarious inbound SMS, MMS, RCS, CPaaS, and Email messages to the operator’s customers.

Cloudmark supplies mobile operators with a choice of providing protection in their network or enabling security in a cloud-based service.

The service combines cloud-based tools with real-time threat data and intelligence from the Cloudmark Global Threat Network and 24x7x365 protection from expert anti-abuse management of the Cloudmark SOC to provide this robust, worry-free, and comprehensive cloud-based protection.

A growing majority of consumers and business professionals spend more time per day on their mobile devices than on personal computers. While mobile subscribers have a wide array of messaging and OTT systems to choose from, only SMS and MMS are broadly interoperable across the world’s mobile networks, regardless of handset type or installed applications. This interoperability is driving a resurgence in interest in mobile messaging, primarily by enterprises seeking to leverage mobile messaging’s high open rates to engage with their customers via application to person (A2P) channels.

Mobile messaging’s open nature and high read rate, however, carries inherent risks that make the platform a favorite target for attackers.

Comparable to email, malicious actors are constantly evolving their tactics to attack mobile subscribers with messages containing spam, phishing, malware and unpaid inter-carrier traffic. Leveraging SIM boxes, ambivalent cloud-based mobile vendors, malware infected applications, and micro-payment integrated SMS proxy applications, attackers are able to send enormous volumes of messaging traffic on a daily basis from vastly varied sources, evading typical sender based volumetric policy limits.

In order to maintain a safe mobile messaging environment and keep subscribers engaged with their mobile messaging platforms, mobile network operators must provide protection against the broad range of threats that target subscribers and their handsets.
