PT Telecom Attack Discovery (PT TAD) delivers targeted protection to SS7 and Diameter signaling networks. Combining rapid detection of all threat types with instant incident response, PT TAD can replace or work alongside your existing signaling firewall. PT Telecom Attack Discovery prevents breaches of personal data, call and SMS interception, subscriber location tracking, signaling fraud, and denial of service attacks—helping to build customer trust, protect your brand, and reduce subscriber churn.
Know your risks, protect your profits
Vulnerabilities in the architecture of the Diameter and SS7 signaling protocols are more than just a compliance issue. These flaws are a fundamental threat to mobile network operator assets, revenue, and reputation. Don't settle for protection that exists only on paper. Build your name as a mobile carrier that cares about security.
Enjoy out-of-the-box expertise
Recruiting in-house security experts is expensive and time-consuming. The cost-effective alternative is to deploy PT Telecom Attack Discovery and instantly tap in to the findings of our world-renowned research team. They'll continuously connect you with their new discoveries to keep your signaling protection fully up to date.
In threat response mode, PT TAD delivers robust protection to SS7 and Diameter signaling networks with no risk to latency or redundancy. PT TAD checks incoming traffic from an STP for malicious attack patterns. Verified messages are looped back and transferred to MNO signaling network. With constant updates from our research team, this mode is the surest way to connect to our industry-leading security intelligence and prevent existing and emerging threats from reaching your core infrastructure.
Simultaneous analysis of SS7 and Diameter traffic by PT TAD is critical for detecting cross-protocol attacks, a new class of threats targeting both protocols in tandem. To detect attacks against your core network and subscribers, PT TAD needs only a copy of signaling traffic. Analysis takes place in the background, capturing both incoming and outgoing traffic flows with zero impact on infrastructure and services. Critical operations and processes continue running as usual at full performance.
If you already have a signaling firewall, STP, or other in-line filtering solution,* PT TAD can operate as an intelligent environment to boost its efficiency. Passive non-intrusive monitoring gives independent visibility and control over your core network. In addition, smart analytics and full interoperability via API allow creating granular filtering rules in PT TAD and pushing them to blocking device for better protection.
Limit costs, not security
Ensure peak efficiency with automatic threat prevention. Years of in-field experience have gone into maximizing automation in PT Telecom Attack Discovery. As a result, you can increase your signaling network protection level, at the same time as reducing manual effort and associated costs.
