AMERSFOORT, The Netherlands, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- BroadForward, leader in intelligent signaling software and provider of cutting-edge signaling security solutions, is proud to announce that it has been awarded the Champion status, the highest rating from specialist consulting and market research firm Kaleido Intelligence, for its signaling security and firewall product range. Earlier this year the BroadForward converged firewall has received the GSMA nomination for Best Mobile Security.
The Kaleido Vendor Hub provides competitive intelligence insight into the offerings of leading roaming and connectivity vendors across multiple categories. Kaleido analysts spent months evaluating and comparing product capabilities and services from over 50 roaming and connectivity vendors, which included the BroadForward signaling security portfolio with the Diameter and SS7 firewall as well as 5G Security Edge Protection Proxy. The rankings are based on a weighted scoring on factors such as industry presence, product features, performance, scalability, overall value proposition and innovation roadmap.
The overall assessment of the vendors is captured in a new report called "The Roaming Vendor Hub: Competitive Analysis 2023 research".
Commenting on this achievement, Taco Schoute, CEO of BroadForward, expressed his gratitude and pride: "We are truly honored to receive this highest rating from Kaleido for our signaling security and firewall products. This recognition validates our ongoing dedication to innovation and excellence in the field of signaling security.
