AdaptiveMobile partners with operators to secure US RCS messaging platforms

ZipWhip Chooses Company to Secure E2P Messaging Across North America

DALLAS and DUBLIN:

AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile network security, today announced that the Company has signed landmark deals with three Tier-1 carriers in North America to protect their strategic RCS messaging infrastructures.

RCS has long been projected to be the future of mobile messaging with the 2015 Global Strategic Business Report projecting “the global market for RCS Services to reach US $4.9 billion by 2020.” Google’s acquisition of Jibe Mobile, a leading provider of RCS services, in September is further evidence of the industry’s efforts to bring RCS to a global audience.

The rapid uptake of AdaptiveMobile’s RCS security, which uses restful APIs, enables carriers to proactively deploy features such as “identification, authentication, privacy and security” to retain trust in their networks and gain competitive advantage over proprietary messaging Apps such as WhatsApp and Viber.

“After many false dawns, we can say with confidence that RCS has finally arrived, as the operator community realise their vision of a global interoperable messaging standard,” commented Brian Collins, CEO of AdaptiveMobile. He continued: “As the industry moves towards NFV and Telco clouds, open security APIs will be increasingly important – and as the world leader in carrier security, AdaptiveMobile is at the forefront of this security revolution.”

In related news, AdaptiveMobile, announced that Zipwhip, the leader in enterprise-to-person (E2P) communications, has selected the company’s Network Platform Protection (NPP) and Messaging Security Product for protection across North America. Zipwhip is the backbone for E2P messaging in the United States. All SMS and MMS traffic from wireless carriers to toll-free phone numbers and most business landline numbers are routed through Zipwhip. Zipwhip has achieved impressive growth with virtually no instances of unsolicited messages, spam or other threats, and the company has chosen AdaptiveMobile to keep its customers’ communications abuse-free. Other service providers have followed Zipwhip’s decision to choose AdaptiveMobile’s Messaging Security Solution, making it the leading choice for E2P messaging protection in North America.

Zipwhip’s cloud-based texting platform lets businesses add text messaging to any existing landline or toll-free phone number. Incoming texts are routed to a computer, tablet or smartphone. For companies in any industry – but especially those in insurance, automotive, staffing, fitness, transportation, radio and healthcare – Zipwhip provides an easy, cost-effective way to reach customers using their preferred method of communication: text message.

“Customers love text messaging, and it is a powerful way to communicate, provided the customer receives only sanctioned messages from brands they trust,” said John Lauer, CEO and Co-Founder of Zipwhip. “AdaptiveMobile understands the damage that spam can do, and the company’s technology is a powerful means to make sure the Zipwhip network remains abuse-free.”

“As the emerging leader in a space we expect to grow exponentially in North America, Zipwhip is the type of innovative customer we seek,” said Brian Collins, CEO of AdaptiveMobile. “Zipwhip is transforming the way that companies interact with customers by allowing enterprise-to-person texting. AdaptiveMobile can draw on its decade-long experience in the mobile security industry, knowledge of threat prevention, and carrier-grade technology to help make sure this growth occurs in an environment that is free of unsolicited communications.”
