Mavenir has acquired Argyle Data, a big data and machine learning security platform provider that delivers real-time anomaly detection and predictive analytics for mobile service providers and IoT networks.
Mobile operators use Argyle Data's platform to detect fraud, profit, and SLA threats. Argyle Data’s native Hadoop application suite uses the latest machine learning technologies against a unique, comprehensive data lake to give communications service providers a 360-degree view of user activities.
Argyle Data claims its technology can analyze terabytes of various data streams and protocols per second in real time with machine learning analytics that enable operators to reduce fraud and offer differentiated services because of their data insights.
Machine learning analytics is increasingly viewed as a key tool to improve the efficiency and profitability of mobile carrier networks. With the introduction of 5G technology and the growth in new communication patterns, applications and devices, new vulnerabilities are being exposed.
As more and more IoT devices are connected, the threat vector will widen, placing more devices at risk of hacking, and more users at risk of having their personal data accessed, or falling victim to fraud, said Argyle Data.
