SMS Firewall

BICS’ SMS Firewall solution provides mobile operators with a safe spam-free roaming and messaging environment that their subscribers can trust, while reducing complaints about unsolicited messages. It stops spoofed and faked messages, releasing network bandwidth for revenue generating traffic, and prevents content providers from bypassing SMS termination fees.

SMS Firewall is available as an SMS anti-fraud solution along with the BICS Signaling service and protects the client operator network and subscribers against a range of SMS fraud cases as defined by GSMA.

SMS Firewall – comprehensive protection for mobile operators from SMS fraud

SMS Firewall provides comprehensive protection from all types of SMS fraud, including monitoring of SMS traffic, detection of fraudulent messages, and alarming and blocking of fraudulent messages based on criteria defined by the mobile operator.

Protection includes:

  • Anti-spamming: block unsolicited SMS messages to subscribers

  • Anti-flooding: block large numbers of messages to one or more destinations

  • Anti-faking: stop messages if addresses are manipulated

  • Anti-spoofing: stop messages that illegally use the SMSC of the operator by manipulating the A-number

Offered as a hosted service. BICS runs, operates and maintains a dedicated SMS Firewall instance hosted on its own premises and ensures the appropriate routing of customer SMS traffic.

Offered as an optional managed service. BICS SMS fraud experts proactively analyze the SMS traffic of the protected mobile operator, recommend the most appropriate filtering rules and configure them on the dedicated BICS SMS Firewall.
