CCA Teams with Cloudmark for Spam Reporting Service
Sep 23, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Competitive Carriers Association announced a partnership with Cloudmark, a global provider of messaging threat protection for communication service providers, to deliver a new, value-added service for CCA carrier members that allows subscribers to report mobile spam and help protect against mobile messaging threats.
According to a release, through its new relationship, CCA will offer the GSMA Spam Reporting Service, powered by Cloudmark technology, enabling carrier members to benefit from collaborative, real-time global insight into threats against mobile networks and subscribers.
CCA members include more than 100 carriers with a licensed service area covering more than 95 percent of the United States. By adopting the GSMA SRS, CCA members will gain actionable intelligence on unwanted mobile network traffic, along with the ability to share threat data with other carriers and receive analysis of global threats. The service provides mobile network operators with the insight they need to detect SMS spam, terminate originating numbers and develop preventative policies and procedures to protect their networks and subscribers.
"Our goal with the Spam Reporting Service is to enable our members to thrive and compete in the mobile market," said Steven K. Berry, president and CEO of CCA. "This new service will help our members protect their customers against growing mobile threats and unsolicited messages. The SRS also provides valuable insight into abusive network traffic and evolving and emerging mobile security issues."
"With every additional operator that participates in the GSMA SRS, the service becomes even more powerful in protecting mobile subscribers," said Alan Ranger, vice president, Global Alliances Partnerships at Cloudmark. "By extending the service to more carriers in the U.S., the collective efforts of the GSMA and CCA will build upon the excellent work being done by Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon and will go a long way to help combat messaging threats."
