The Dhaka-based telecom operator, Grameephone Ltd., is upgrading its A2P (application-to-person) messaging system with a firewall to enhance protection for its over 51 million customers from spam and fraudulent messages.

A press statement by the Dialogue Group said that in this regard it is now in partnership with two other companies to provide Grameephone Ltd. with a unique filtering solution.

The two other companies are Haud Systems Ltd. and 365squared, both based in Malta even as the latter also has a Singapore office.

The Dialogue Group is based in Sheffield, UK and is a specialist in the provision of A2P solutions.

MNOs

On the other hand, Haud Systems Ltd. is a solutions provider for security and fraud detection while 365squared is a services provider to mobile network operators (MNO).

Among the services offered by the latter is end-to-end management that enables MNOs to monetize their A2P traffic while protecting their customers from fraud.

The press statement said 365squared had won the tender to manage A2P traffic on Grameephone's network and then chose the Dialogue Group and Haud Systems as associates in the project.
