Cloudmark has launched a new version of its mobile platform to provide real-time visibility and control of mobile messaging threats.

According to the company, Cloudmark Mobile Platform 3.0 operates at mobile speed and can provide visibility and control of mobile messaging threats originating from internal or external networks, and offers policy controls and scalability to stop threats before they impact mobile networks and subscribers.

Designed for the largest mobile network operators, it said that Cloudmark Mobile Platform 3.0 provides the capability for operators to offer security services to enterprises, such as message archiving to corporate mail systems, data leakage prevention and abusive image protection to simplify compliance with government regulations and corporate policies.

The platform's enterprise-wide block and allow lists also provide extra security by only allowing authorised senders and receivers to exchange messages or access specific content, while time-of-day policies enable enterprises to take more control of messaging traffic.

Neil Cook, chief technology officer at Cloudmark, said: “Mobile operators recognise that protecting their subscribers from increasingly sophisticated mobile messaging threats is an essential step for increasing subscriber satisfaction and reducing the burden of unwanted traffic on their networks.”
