As RCS ‘takes off’, carriers turn to AdaptiveMobile to proactively secure services and protect users
DALLAS and DUBLIN, 11 February 2016 – 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.”
