03/12/2021 London. ROCCO starts its 4th Annual Research into Signalling Firewall Vendor Benchmarking. 

Vulnerabilities within the SS7 network, the Diameter protocol and the EPC, remain a dominant topic in discussions about mobile network security. In ROCCO’s 4th annual research we hope to get even closer to understanding the capabilities of over 20+ vendors in this space offering solutions for Signalling Firewall. MNOs who have already purchased firewalls this is your chance to give feedback and make your mark on where innovation might still be needed.

This research project is aimed at MNOs giving their views on the Vendors of these solutions. The research is hosted only by ROCCO, so the MNOs views are aggregated in the reports and any feedback given by MNOs is completely confidential. This is the basis on which we have been delivering research for the last five years. MNOs like the opportunity to share their views with ROCCO as a neutral entity and understand the views of other MNOs.

MNO’s can take the survey by following this link Or by using the QR Code in the image here.

Featuring 27 vendors and questions on the newest fraud prevention measures. 

MNOs can add to the list by choosing OTHER and we will in turn update the list with additional Vendors. Only Vendors whom receive at least 5 responses from MNOs are included in the report. This is to ensure meaningful results. But it also allows any Vendor large or small to reach a tier one ranking, as the rankings are based not on the amount of responses received but the overall perceptions of the MNOs who take part. ROCCO remains a company devoted to neutrality. Our Vendor Performance Research is never sponsored, since we like to ask the questions Operators want and give the true position in the market in our reports.

The survey is open for a short time only, closing on 19th February 2021

We will present the results in tiers, as we have previously. This means than multiple Vendors may be announced within tier one (Overall score between 4-5 points out of 5) and Vendors who score lower than this will be announced as Tier 2 or Tier 3.

Thank you for participating in ROCCO Research.
