GMS will offer Mobileum’s next-generation SMS Firewall as a critical service layer to ensure the highest level of messaging security. GMS is a trusted SMS routing provider and serves as a single point of access for messaging traffic exchange with all mobile operators and enterprises.

Robert Rose, Chief Strategy Officer at GMS, commented:
“At GMS, our goal is to drive innovation and value while providing best-in-class customer service, and our partnership with Mobileum plays a critical role in this direction. By integrating our Managed Services offering with Mobileum’s next-generation SMS Firewall, our customers receive all the benefits of a state-of-the-art firewall without the headaches of managing it. Given Mobileum’s unparalleled expertise, we can assure our customers that their network and subscribers are protected from malicious traffic while allowing them to maximize their A2P traffic revenues.”
Leveraging the latest advances in machine learning, AI and natural language processing (NLP), Mobileum SMS Firewall helps operators monitor, detect and filter fraudulent or suspicious SMS traffic in real-time, while controlling traffic from grey routes to reduce revenue leakage. It identifies and mitigates SMS spam and smishing by securely evaluating multiple parameters, including message content, to protect customers from malicious attacks. This is a fully automated solution, which removes potential for human error, and it ensures complete data privacy while providing an increased level of detection accuracy – enhancing SMS security, messaging monetization, and subscriber protection.
Stephen Ornadel, VP responsible for Mobileum’s security business, commented:
“Mobileum is pleased to partner with GMS to provide leading-edge SMS Firewall protection for their managed services customers. A2P messaging traffic provides substantial revenue streams for mobile network operators, yet grey route traffic continues to cause significant losses in revenue each year. Our next-generation firewall goes beyond traditional firewalls, leveraging the latest in machine learning techniques to more effectively identify and block a wide variety of fraudulent SMS, including SMS SIM box attacks and Wangiri fraud. It also unlocks the monetization potential of A2P and IoT messaging by blocking non-commercialized traffic.”
