How to Protect Your Network

Stringent regulations are driving the demand for short message service (SMS) firewall solutions. Growing security and privacy concerns across the globe, stringent government regulations, increased adoption of Application to Person (A2P) messaging, and growing focus on preventing revenue loss due to grey routes are some of the factors driving the growth of the global SMS firewall market.

In fact, one new report predicts that the SMS firewall market size is expected to grow to $2.82 billion by 2021, which will impact how construction professionals do business and leverage technology at the construction jobsite.

The A2P messaging segment is expected to grow at a higher rate in the SMS firewall market during the forecast period. The demand for A2P traffic is witnessing a strong growth across enterprises. Various industry verticals are adopting A2P messages for communication purposes. Enterprises can use A2P SMS for marketing and promotional messages, authentication, alerts, and notifications.

Among the messaging platforms, the cloud platform is expected to have a higher growth rate in the SMS firewall market during the forecast period. Mobile network operators are opting for cloud-based SMS firewall solutions to ensure the security of text messages. The cloud deployment model is very reliable, scalable, secure, and cost-effective.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the SMS firewall market during the forecast period. The growth in APAC is mainly driven by increasing adoption of A2P messages across various industry verticals. With a large mobile subscriber base and an extensive geographic coverage, government authorities across the APAC countries are implementing strong rules and regulations for SMS spam traffic. This is a major factor driving the growth of the SMS firewall market in the APAC region.

These upgrades to the technology will provide updated solutions to networks and systems on the jobsite.
