The SMS firewall platform segment to record a larger market size during the forecast period
The SMS firewall platform allows Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to safeguard the SMS traffic from malicious attacks, such as SMS phishing, SMS spoofing, SMS spamming, and SIM boxing/farming, while focusing on Application-to-Person (A2P) monetization. Globally, MNOs have undertaken preemptive measures to ensure higher customer experience and drive business revenue. SMS firewall vendors provide full control to MNOs for preventing SMS traffic from malicious attacks. With the advancement in technologies and the proliferation of security attacks, vendors have integrated Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and analytics capabilities into the firewall that provisions real-time threat intelligence into SMS traffic for the telecom network.
Based on SMS type, the A2P messages segment to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The demand for A2P messaging has been witnessing strong growth across enterprises. Verticals, such as BFSI, government, healthcare, and eCommerce, are adopting A2P messaging for communication purposes. Enterprises can use A2P messaging for marketing and promotional messages, authenticating the customer, and sending OTPs and notifications. With the proliferation of smartphones and tablets across enterprises and their increased use by individual customers, it has become easy for enterprises to interact directly with their customers through SMS. In the global scenario, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, and Middle East and Africa (MEA) are the fastest-growing regions in the A2P messaging type, due to the higher adoption of A2P messages in the banking, finance, eCommerce, and government verticals. Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to create new business models for the A2P messaging type.
