After carrying out in-house development and customisation to Openwave's Edge Gx Anti-Abuse platform, the operator rolled out the system designed to beef up its network edge defences by boosting anti-spam and anti-virus filtering.
The system is designed to defend against messaging abuse on both inbound and outbound messages, preventing spammers from infiltrating its carrier networks and illegally sending out unsolicited emails or harmful viruses
"As spam and viruses continue to flood the internet and as spammers and hackers continue to perfect their craft, we must be confident of our ability to protect the end-user," said Per Rasmussen, vice president, TDC Residential.
"Openwave has provided a solution that has helped us quickly protect our customers, alleviated the pressure spam puts on our network capacity and reduced the overall cost in combating the abuse"
