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.
