Protect Platform for Analytics

Ribbon's Protect platform leverages big data analytics to empower service providers to more rapidly, more intelligently, and more efficiently respond to real-time communications (RTC) cyberattacks, fraud attempts and network quality incidents. Ribbon Protect quickly and easily integrates with existing RTC network investments without requiring network probes.

High-speed data ingestion, data enrichment, and a highly scalable and reliable data storage are the foundation for the Protect platform. Leveraging well-established concepts of network behavioral analytics from the data world, it is possible to establish a well-defined baseline of what is categorized as “normal” RTC traffic as well as IP port activity. Deviations from this baseline can be quickly identified and used to mitigate a variety of RTC attacks by disseminating security policies across the network topology.


The sharing of threat intelligence data (including white/blacklists) across network elements is the key to closing the security aperture of your real-time communications network. Ribbon NetProtect distributes threat intelligence policies across network devices, so you can close the gap exposed by rogue communications. Distributed security policies between your SBCs and next-gen firewalls allows you to stop bad actors at the edge of the network. It also enables your organization to have a more effective and holistic security methodology across the converged (data and communication) network.
