The network infrastructure of Communication Service Providers provides a unique competitive advantage for enterprise and cloud services in the market. However, their IP networks are often misused by spammers and fraudsters. Botnets especially lower end-user satisfaction, damage reputation, increase churn, and drive up costs for service providers. These botnets steal expensive network bandwidth and increase infrastructure expenditures. In order to keep the network efficient and maintain sender IP reputation, operators need to clean all malicious traffic as early as possible.
Symantec’s Next Generation Network Protection addresses these outbound spam challenges with a superior proactive messaging reputation solution and mapping of dynamic source IP addresses to unique subscriber identifiers like the MSISDN in mobile networks. It avoids blacklisting, optimizes the operator’s network resources and significantly reduces customer services call.
