By Anil Sharma
Sybase (News - Alert) 365, the mobile services arm of SAP AG and the global player in mobile interconnection services and mobile commerce solutions, has entered into a partnership with Cloudmark (News - Alert), Inc., a global player in messaging threat protection for mobile, fixed and social networks.
Thanks to this pact, Sybase 365 will now be able to augment its existing spam protection capabilities by incorporating the Cloudmark Security Platform into its network to raise the bar in the defense against all types of mobile messaging abuse for a more secure network.
"Today, network reliability extends well beyond message delivery – it is the most critical requirement for operators to maintain mobile consumer satisfaction," said John Sims (News - Alert), president, Sybase 365, in a statement.
"Our operator customers rely on us to provide a robust, safe and reliable service through our expansive global network. With SMS volumes predicted to exceed 8.3 trillion in 2012, SMS is still the most commonly used mobile service on the planet. Our partnership with Cloudmark will help our customers to provide a spam-free mobile experience," said Sims.
Officials with Sybase 365 (News - Alert) said that the company has integrated the Cloudmark Security Platform, a carrier-class solution that offers fast, accurate mobile messaging security protection to proactively identify and block abusive messaging before it can impact mobile networks and subscribers.
Company officials said that the combined solution delivers full protection against mobile spam, phishing and fraud, as well as malware and binary message content for Sybase 365's operator customers.
"Messaging abuse poses an ever-growing challenge to mobile networks as it continues to grow in both volume and sophistication, threatening to erode subscriber trust, increase operating costs and devalue operator brands," said Neil McGowan, senior vice president, global sales and alliance partnerships at Cloudmark.
"Cloudmark and Sybase 365 share a mutual commitment to providing the most secure and satisfying mobile experience. We look forward to a productive partnership as we work together to deliver complete messaging security protection for mobile operator networks and their customers," said McGowan.
