How mobile operators are protecting their business, saving costs and conforming to security requirements at the same time?

With the emergence of new connected devices every day, security measures are turning into one of the most essential resources. In addition to the volume of new devices, the information stored on them has also increased and become more sensitive, such as bank details and passwords. For this reason, the trusted reputation of cellular services is becoming an increasingly important asset for operators. 

In terms of investment and efforts, homeland security support requirements generate significant costs and consume working time for MNOs (Mobile Network Operators). And many businesses face unexpected challenges to keep up with security protocols, since the volume of unprotected devices is also rising.

Device Tracking

With the increasing global number of stolen and fraudulent devices on the market, mobile networks need to be protected against any potential threats caused by their usage. Therefore, one of the most critical and applied features in MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) and MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) security is the tracking, monitoring and locating of devices, SIMs, and subscribers.  

Sicap´s solution “Safer” is enabling mobile operators to search and locate devices and device owners in real-time, supporting them on the challenge to protect their business, offer security measures to subscribers and conform to the most demanding security specifications. 

Safer is a collaborative tool providing secure remote access for various stakeholders such as operators, police, national and international investigation organizations, with different user-rights. Thus, telecom operators can cooperate with authorities to track unauthorized usage of their network. 

Cost-efficiency  

Safer is available with several deployment models that combine to manage service delivery and pay-as-you-grow pricing. Our flexible solution aims to match all the service provider’s needs which are available through Cloud, On-premises, and a Virtualized Application. Besides this, the solution is based on state-of-the-art software and big data technologies and can process, store and search vast amounts of data quickly, which allows operators and other stakeholders to access information in real-time. 

Main Strengths & Benefits

  • Have a complete subscribers’ database updated in real-time, embedding the change of devices 
  • Be able to track Subscriber change per MSISDN (Mobile Station ISDN Number), IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) or location area
