Comviva, a major player in providing mobile VAS solutions, has partnered with AdaptiveMobile (News - Alert) to bring the next wave in mobile messaging.
Thanks to the pact, the operators can now leverage monitoring and advanced security techniques to protect their mobile subscribers, network and business.
“With the ever increasing spam messages from unregistered telemarketers, mobile users are tired of unsolicited/pesky text messages. Therefore operators need to continue to focus on keeping the SMS channel clean to protect users from unwanted messages,” said Manoranjan Mohapatra, CEO, Comviva, in a statement.
Mohapatra said that 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.
“We are excited to be working with one of the global leaders in mobile data and messaging solutions on this important initiative,” said Brian Collins, CEO, AdaptiveMobile.
Collins said that text messaging, the most widely used mobile data service today, is under attack with SMS spam, spoofing and other SMS-related scams , making network congestion a major concern for service providers.
“We trust this integrated solution will help them address their network security problem and help them grow their revenues," Collins said.
AdaptiveMobile is a major player in mobile security, enabling trusted networks for the world’s largest operator groups and protecting one in six subscribers globally.
Earlier in December, Comviva had announced that it won an order to extend its Revenue Plus and Hola! solutions to a leading telecommunications service provider in Somalia. With Revenue Plus solution, the operator aims to serve its mobile subscribers with both real-time offers and loyalty based rewards that will enhance their service experience and make them more active users.
While, Hola! is a one-stop-shop solution that will enable users to access various social networking sites, such as Facebook (News - Alert) and Twitter, email services, including Gmail and Yahoomail. This also extends to popular web feeds and other relevant applications on mobile devices through a client application, or via SMS or USSD.
