Positive Technologies Named Finalist for the Future Tech Awards in Innovation

PT SS7 Attack Discovery, recognized as innovative in protecting the SS7 infrastructure from severe attacks: espionage, fraud, denial of service

Positive Technologies, the cyber security company that enables organizations to detect and respond to advanced threats has been named a finalist in the 2016 Critical Communications Future Tech awards for Innovation.

Launched in March 2016, Positive Technologies product PT SS7 Attack Discovery (PT SS7 AD) offers carriers the ability to rapidly detect, identify and analyze attacks on their SS7 infrastructure and subscribers in their network.

“We are proud to be recognized for our innovative solution which solves a big headache for the operators around SS7 security,” said Dan Tara, EVP Positive Technologies, “particularly as existing security solutions do not currently offer the security we can deliver; security that enables the Telco’s to avoid suffering loss of revenue, reputational damage as well as regulatory financial penalties.”

The 2016 Future Tech award looks at products and solutions that will have the biggest impact in the Critical Communications market over the next two years. Being an innovation award, the product or service must have launched after May 2015 or be currently under development. The judges look at the innovation of the product, the problem it solves, its potential benefit and application as well as its affordability versus the benefits.

The awards are judged by a panel of those with expert knowledge, interest and experience within the critical communications sector. This year’s expert panel consists of Robin Davis, Chair of the TCCA Transport Group; Carl Jensen, CEO of PFI; and Curt Smith, Ex Technology Director BP.
