According to a new press release, “Ribbon Communications Inc., a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, today launched the newest component of its advanced security portfolio, Ribbon Protect. This big data behavioral analytics platform is designed to eliminate blind spots and provide advanced fraud management protection while safeguarding communications service providers’ (CSP) and enterprises’ real-time communications (RTC) networks and applications from security attacks while delivering unparalleled visibility into network operations. ‘Leveraging its knowledge of voice communications, Ribbon has recognized the need for stepped up security within the UC network,’ said Greg Collins, Founder and Principal Analyst, Exact Ventures. ‘The growing shift toward Session Initiated Protocol (SIP) and cloud-native architectures has enabled new attacks against real-time communications networks’.”
The release continues, “The Communications Fraud Control Association’s 2017 global fraud survey estimates approximately $29.2 billion in fraud losses annually from communications-related attacks. Ribbon Protect provides service providers and enterprises with a machine learning, network behavioral analytics solution for their RTC network and fraud management. The platform enables service providers to accurately block toll fraud, Robo Dialers and disseminate security policies across network “enforcers” such as session border controllers (SBC) and firewalls. Additionally, Ribbon Protect provides network operations with a single view of the end to end communications network, a critical factor in stopping RTC attacks, and intelligently pinpoints network operational issues, helping to lower service provider costs and decrease churn by increasing customer satisfaction.”
