Comviva Technologies has announced that it has joined forces with mobile security and services provider AdaptiveMobile to provide a network-based web and message content filtering solution
The new partnership is set to help network operators control monitoring and advanced security techniques to protect their system, subscribers and business customers against the increasing threat of mobile spamming in Africa.
“With the ever increasing spam messages from unregistered telemarketers, mobile users are tired of unsolicited/pesky text messages, commenting on the newly-formed partnership,” said Comviva CEO Manoranjan Mohapatra.
“Therefore operators need to continue to focus on keeping the SMS channel clean to protect users from unwanted messages.”
Service providers will carry out a complex assessment of the content of messages and data, using specific text combinations or the content type with web and message content filtering function.
AdaptiveMobile’s content filtering programme will regulate unwanted spam so operators will have a solution for identifying and preventing fraudulent SMS/MMS and spam.
“With this collaboration Comviva will integrate AdaptiveMobile’s message content filtering solution with its SMS platform and web content filtering solution with its Mobile Data platform,” Mohapatra added.
