AirGuard Intros Antidote

Airwide Solutions unveiled an antidote for the new and growing epidemic of mobile messaging threats

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Airwide Solutions, the leading provider of mobile messaging infrastructure and applications, today unveiled an antidote for the new and growing epidemic of mobile messaging threats.

Airwide’s new AirGuard AntiSpam brings comprehensive anti-threat capabilities to SMS messaging networks, which have lacked this type of protection. The solution lets operators protect their network and subscribers from all threats of fraud, spam and other malware infecting SMS messages in one comprehensive solution.

AirGuard AntiSpam can increase SMS revenues, reduce operator and subscriber costs and protect the operator’s brand. According to recent studies[i], more than eight in 10 mobile phone users have received unsolicited SMS messages and are more likely to change their operator than their mobile number to fight the problem. AirGuard AntiSpam also protects subscribers who are increasingly falling victims to scams and malicious content. The service defends against a wide variety of abuses, including denial-of-service attacks, unwanted advertisements, offensive content, scams, and over-the-air (OTA) messages that reprogram handsets to use premium rate numbers.

“AirGuard AntiSpam gives operators three important benefits: revenue protection, brand protection and cost reduction,” said Patrick Lopez, Airwide’s vice president of product management. “In fact, proactive operators who are early to market with this service can potentially add millions to the bottom line and even take a lead in the race for market share.”
