Telefónica Argentina Launches Signaling Mavenir Firewall

Mavenir, a provider of accelerating software network transformation and transforming mobile network economics for communications service providers (CSPs), and Telefónica Argentina have deployed Mavenir´s Signaling Firewall to protect its customers and signaling infrastructure by detecting and preventing signaling-based attacks, the company said.

The signaling fraud solution prevents the network from signaling hacks, distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS), protects customer information from being intercepted and improves user experience. Denying stacks also protects operator resources from being used unnecessarily and even from overload conditions that shouldn´t exist (high capacity and distributed attacks).

The deployment of a signaling firewall in the Telefónica Argentina network will handle SS7 and Diameter-based signaling coming in from abroad and other networks.

Mavenir´s solution enables Telefónica Argentina to protect their customers and the network from potential hackers while tracing their origin. The Signaling Firewall with its intuitive GUI and reporting capabilities allows Telefónica Argentina to stay ahead of the potential threats and provide sufficient level of protection to their customers. In addition, Mavenir SMART (Security Management and Response Team) team is helping to interpret the signaling data, attack suspects and enforce blocking rules.

Telefónica is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world by market capitalization and number of customers. Present in 16 countries and with almost 357 million accesses, Telefónica has a strong presence in Spain, Europe and Latin America, where it concentrates most of its growth strategy.
