Over the last five years we have been witnessing a remarkable increase in unauthorized attempts to break into clients’ stations – from several occasions in 2010 to a few of tens following the results of 2015. Spring 2016 fixed line operator Gars Telecom modernized the Fraud Management System (FMS). This update helped detect and block illegal traffic generation for five clients only in the next few days.

The insecure CPA is getting more and more vulnerable to fraud that causes companies of all scales and business fields to suffer thousands or even billions in lost. On the one hand, the carrier does not responsible for the equipment operation according to the law; at the same time the final cost for communication services is calculated based on the readings taken from such equipment. On the other hand, clients of Gars Telecom must feel protected from hacking and illegal traffic generation, so we decided to implement the real-time solution that enables fraud detection within owned network.

The FMS by Gars Telecom conducts a thorough analysis of possible vulnerabilities, including traffic dynamics and intensity. When there’s a suspicious traffic that does not correspond to the company’s profile, or other alarming activity is detected, the system notifies the client and blocks the account.
