DUBLIN & DALLAS — June 25, 2015 — AdaptiveMobile (http://www.adaptivemobile.com) has expanded to protect one fifth of the world’s mobile subscribers and is now Ireland’s 2nd largest telecoms software company. Global expansion in both its customer base and employees has seen AdaptiveMobile grow to now protect over 1.3 billion subscribers across more than 75 mobile operators worldwide.
This growth has been driven by AdaptiveMobile’s continued leading edge work in identifying, mitigating and protecting against the latest mobile security threats. The first to discover recent Android malware threats including Selfmite and Gazon, AdaptiveMobile launched its SS7 Protection Product and Grey Route Controls Service earlier this year – providing communication service providers with state of the art protection to secure their networks and protect and grow new revenue streams. Just last month, AdaptiveMobile blocked Apple’s iPhone message crash for millions of subscribers, protecting them from a new form of SMS messaging attack that immediately crashes your iPhone, iPad or iPod upon opening the message.
The depth of expertise within AdaptiveMobile continues to be recognised by the industry; the Company has recently been identified by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor’ in their “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider, Security, 2015” Report. At this year’s RSA Conference, AdaptiveMobile’s researchers revealed how they have been tracking and blocking criminal activity around messaging bank fraud alerts and shared unique intelligence on previously unseen mobile attacks impacting financial institutions within the United States. During Mobile World Congress 2015, AdaptiveMobile challenged the mobile industry to address vulnerabilities in the SS7 protocol reinforcing the need for industry measures to secure the trust and privacy of subscribers.
“Trust is intrinsically linked to the value and power of a brand, and for mobile operators the trust of subscribers in their ability to both protect their privacy and security is critical,” said Brian Collins, CEO, AdaptiveMobile. “From Asia to Africa, from LATAM to India, operators are stepping up the challenge of mobile security and accepting the role they have to play in delivering a safe and secure experience for their customers. AdaptiveMobile continues to see strong growth and, after signing a landmark deal this year in the US, we are now the dominant protector of the majority of North American mobile subscribers.”
Founded and headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, AdaptiveMobile is present in nine of the top ten mobile operator groups globally (excluding China) and has doubled its customer base in the last 24 months. The first half of 2015 has seen significant growth in its global footprint, including expansion into 16 new markets in Africa, taking its presence on the continent up to 22 countries, and the USA, Canada, Asia, Latin America and Central America. The Company has also experienced a 33 percent employee growth worldwide including growth in the Dublin ‘Silicon Docks’ HQ. This increase in headcount, coupled with strong revenue growth, has seen AdaptiveMobile tip the scales to become Ireland’s second largest telecoms software company.
The first half of 2015 also saw AdaptiveMobile shortlisted in the Best Security/Anti-Fraud Product or Solution category at the Global Mobile Awards for its globally-deployed Network Protection Platform. This built on awards won in 2014, including the ‘Network Management Excellence’ award at the Telecoms.com Awards and being named as a ‘Pioneer in Global Mobile Threat Detection’ by analyst firm Frost and Sullivan.
