2 min read

Global Message Services (GMS), an international messaging services provider for mobile operators and enterprises, is proud to announce that it has been rated as a Tier 1 SMS Firewall Vendor in the ROCCO SMS Firewall Benchmarking Report 2022. 

Between November 2021 and January 2022, ROCCO asked 130 MNOs in 64 countries about their perception of SMS Firewall vendors. A total of 29 vendors were rated on over 30 KPIs in the areas of performance and leadership.

GMS is one of 7 vendors to receive the prestigious Tier 1 ranking. It achieved an overall score of between 4.3 and 4.9 points out of 5 across all categories, with our reliability, technical expertise and customer service receiving particular praise.

SMS firewalls are the first line of defence for MNOs in protecting their networks and subscribers from fraudulent traffic. According to forecasts by Juniper Research, by minimising the profit to be made from the successful transmission of grey route traffic, SMS firewall implementation is expected to reduce operator losses to fraud from $5.6 billion in 2021 to $922 million by 2026.

Charles Upchurch, CEO, GMS

Weeding out unauthorised traffic is critical for MNOs seeking to improve monetisation. Our team of experts at GMS are skilled at network evaluation and play a proactive role in detecting emerging threats and vulnerabilities. Attaining ROCCO’s Tier 1 SMS Firewall Vendor status is a fantastic recognition of their efforts in providing the best service to our customers.
