It comes as no surprise that a lot of people have been wondering about a Mobile Network Provider’s security. After all, we live in a day and age where hacking into someone’s system can be as easy as going online and searching for the right tools. With all of the technology available, we can just imagine what expert hackers can do to a company as big as a Mobile Network Operator with millions of subscribers. These hackers prey on the vulnerability of MNOs’ network and take advantage of the first chance they get. They are very meticulous and plans every single part of the attack, down to the last detail.

This is why it is very important that a Mobile Network Provider or Operator is equipped with the proper tools and security for themselves and their subscribers. Cellusys offers a state-of-the-art Signalling Firewall protection which eliminates the vulnerability from Signalling System 7, Diameter, GPRS Tunneling Protocol Control (GTP-C), Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and many more.

 

What this revolutionary security system from Cellusys does is build a wall of protection around your network to detect and swat out existing threats and prevent unknown threats. To put it simply, the networks using Cellusys’ Signalling Firewall will be protected and equipped with a comprehensive insurance policy in place  which will secure their networks from both current and future attacks.

 

The aforementioned Signalling Firewall is an effective and innovative way of swatting out threats and attacks. It serves as a network’s first line of defense when it comes to different security risks such as Fraud, Phishing, SMiShing, theft, and more which can lead to major revenue issues and data loss in the future.

 

This security system helps incorporate different protection protocols onto a single platform to use a multi-layered signalling security procedure for 2G, 3G & 4G/LTE. It provides the most comprehensive, flexible and extendable signaling security system available for the telecommunications company.

 

The Cellusys Signalling Firewall boasts four-tiered protection which includes Message Screening, Contextual Awareness, Near Real-time Streaming Analysis and Reporting.

These different types of protection will be discussed further below.

 

First, the Message Screening Process utilizes a set of message filtering rules which protects any and all security breaches. This helps secure any message that comes in and out of the network to make sure there are no threats or security risks.

 

On the other hand, we have the Contextual Awareness which is a powerful and innovative tool in determining whether the valid messages that passed through the Message Screen Process are a threat to the network or its subscribers. This serves as the second layer of protection to ensure the network and the subscribers’ privacy. Every message that comes out of the Message Screening Process goes through Contextual Awareness and is scanned based on its context.

 

Once a message completes the first two steps (Message Screening and Contextual Awareness), it is then copied and streamed to the analysis engine. This Near Real-time Streaming Analysis is a powerful tool to help with the scoring. Based on the resultant score, an appropriate rule is then applied to the message and any other similar types of messages that come in after that.

Conclusion:

To top off this amazing Signalling Firewall security, Cellusys offers a comprehensive and configurable reporting system for each Mobile Network Operators. This reporting system provides a complete insight into the security of the MNO’s signalling network. It serves as a valuable tool for networks to find out every security information and details they need to know.
