DarkMatter will be able to interact with more than 800 telecom operators globally, as it develops end-to-end secure communications offerings
Cyber security firm DarkMatter has announced it has become an associate member in the GSMA.
DarkMatter's membership will enable the company to become active in GSMA working groups, such as Fraud and Security, Web and SIM. These three groups address issues such as safeguarding SIM cards, encryption on the internet, the introduction of HTTP2, mobile malware, cloud service risks and controls, and SS7 security.
Furthermore, DarkMatter can also participate in other GSMA programmes, including Personal Data and Connected Living, which coincide with DarKMatter's interests in secure mobile and Internet of Things devices.
DarkMatter's Founder & CEO, Faisal Al Bannai said: "This is DarkMatter's first substantive industry membership, and we are proud that it is with an organisation as esteemed as the GSMA. Mobile communications have transformed the way in which we work and live, and with the growth in connectivity, and the expansion of applications that are going mobile, it is imperative we secure this fundamental environment from cyber threats.
"The convergence of mobility, IT, and the web means millions of connected devices are being added to the digital ecosystem on a continuous basis. At DarkMatter we have enjoyed success in developing end-to-end secure communications applications, and we hope to leverage our membership in the GSMA to further establish our activities in this area, while exchanging valuable insights with the leading mobile operators globally," he added.
Becoming an associate member of the GSMA, a global organisation that represents the interests of the mobile telecom industry, will enable DarkMatter to benefit from networking opportunities, access to knowledge databases, and best-practice guidelines and industry intelligence and insight.
