SMS Bypass Fraud

Ensure secure and reliable communication through SMS

Get SMS revenue under control

SMS is considered one of the most reliable communication methods with a high delivery rate to the end user. However, SMS is also a prime target for fraudulent activities. Fraudsters are taking advantage of this situation to spread fraudulent content and appropriate revenue that belongs to CSPs. In addition to traditional SMS bypass, new wave attacks like Flubot are causing significant harm to both CSPs and end users.

Therefore, it is essential to take proactive measures to prevent such fraudulent activities and protect the interests of both CSPs and end users. By doing so, we can ensure that SMS continues to be a reliable means of communication without compromising its security and integrity.

Leverage Analytics that can stop SMS Bypass

A2P SMS provides a lucrative revenue stream for CSPs, but it also attracts fraudsters who try to bypass termination charges to boost their profits. The impact of this can be significant for CSPs, potentially resulting in the loss of millions of dollars each year.

CSPs can leverage AI/ML capabilities to tackle SMS bypass fraud. By using Mobileum's advanced SMS bypass detection, they can regain control over their A2P SMS revenue stream. By utilizing a cutting-edge analytical approach, CSPs are able to identify and prevent fraudulent activities and ensure that their A2P SMS revenue grows steadily.

Control SMS usage for fraudulent Service Subscription

Malware is a significant threat to CSPs, not only for their users but also for their ability to maintain a secure network where botnets and malware have limited spread. In many cases, this traffic is targeted towards subscription services that are generated by malware or security breaches within the system. Identifying these cases is crucial for CSPs to pinpoint fraudulent traffic being sent through SMS interfaces without user consent.

To address this problem, Mobileum has developed a fraud prevention approach that relies on a new analytical method that identifies suspicious activity based on large volumes of SMS sent to international destinations.

The Pre-Packaged Approach to Fight SMS Fraud

RAID is a pre-packaged solution that allows CSPs to evaluate their network traffic and detect fraudulent behaviours and abnormal subscriber usage patterns.

The solution makes use of a complex rule library combined with advanced profiling techniques on top of a wide range of data such as CDR information, signaling (SIP, SS7, and Diameter) as well as test call generator (TCG) analysis to detect SMS Fraud scenarios.

Co-engineered to leverage fraud and security contextual analysis

SMS Firewalls have become increasingly common on CSP networks, providing network-level signaling analysis to detect and prevent protocol breaches. By implementing SMS Firewall rules, CSPs can easily identify fraudulent messages and hacking patterns, as well as any security standards violations. By linking SMS Firewall information with a Fraud Management System, CSPs can expand their analytics capabilities and tackle additional SMS Fraud threats. With SMS Bypass Fraud posing a significant threat to network security, it is crucial to have the latest analytics capabilities to stay ahead of potential breaches.

The combined power of integrated SMS Firewall with Fraud management system ensures the possibility of detecting fraudulent activity that was previously undetectable. CSPs can leverage SMS Firewall information as an additional source, developing a more comprehensive approach to fraud management. Prevent SMS fraud from impacting your revenue. Switch to an analytics powered SMS bypass fraud solution to safeguard your A2P SMS revenue stream.

RAID takes advantage of TCG data and combines it with advanced Fraud Management analytical information to provide additional layer of protection against SMS bypass fraud. FMS leverages advanced data analytics, sophisticated pattern matching, and machine learning algorithms to deliver a fast and reliable multi-layered solution.

Working side by side, TCG and FMS engines provide a comprehensive approach to SMS bypass fraud detection.

Helping Regulators win the war against SMS Bypass fraud

In countries where SMS bypass fraud is rampant, it can lead to several detrimental consequences. These may include financial losses, a decline in customer trust, and a decrease in tax revenues for the government from international SMS traffic. Moreover, there is a growing number of services being subscribed without direct user request, which becomes a worse problem when those services are hosted abroad.

To address these issues, Mobileum developed a solution specifically for telecom regulators worldwide. This solution not only eliminates fraud, but it also preserves the privacy and quality of service for both operators and subscribers. In addition, it helps to recover international SMS termination revenue that operators and local Governments are entitled to.
