There is an increasing and ever-changing flood of spam and fraud traffic that has proven difficult for many operators to detect and control. With only basic SMS filtering systems in place, 30% of spam messages were previously going undetected on the Telkomsel network, and a more advanced detection capability for unsolicited messages was critical to bring this figure down.
Spam Shield provides spam detection and dynamic policy control, with a learning process that continually adjusts to the constantly changing threat posed by spam to subscribers and operators’ brand and reputation. This learning process results in an ever improving and effective solution that evolves in real-time – as do the characteristics of spam – modifying spam filters and policy control as appropriate.
Telkomsel’s Vice President of IT VAS and Corporate Service Solution and Management, Asep Y Septiana, said: "Spam Shield has reduced the effort and human intervention previously required to operate and manage the filtering, because there is no need to manually configure filtering rules. This makes it easier for Telkomsel to protect subscribers, as well as ensure the timely delivery of critical messaging services, such as PIN notifications, while correctly monetizing commercial use of messaging. Spam Shield’s ability to filter out grey route messaging enables us to sell SMS advertising via the appropriate channels, and monetize OTT related messages through the correct wholesale channels. This not only opens up new revenue streams for us, but also provides subscribers with a better overall experience and greater satisfaction."
