“I’m excited to join RedShift Network’s Board of Advisors. RedShift Unified Communications Threat Management (UCTM) technology protects against video and voice cyber threats in this new world of remote workers. Real time attacks like Robocalls, fraud, telephony DOS, call spoofing, SIP botnet and more than 40,000 other real-time threats.” Said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, CEO of Pulse Secure.
Robocall protection is especially timely given the global shift to working from home. RedShift Networks approach to UC fraud prevention complies with upcoming FCC 2021 STIR/SHAKEN standard that prevents anomalous traffic levels or dynamically block call attempts from unregistered users. Enterprises and Communication Service Provider customers depend on Redshift Networks Robocall approach including its 3 million plus known Robocall database growing at 30,000 numbers daily. RedShift Networks real-time Robocall blocking and auto mitigation with their Advance Fraud Interdiction (AFI) feature.
“The accelerated innovation and deployment of 5G technology differs significantly from previous generations. The entire wireless cellular network is now re-architected to use new capabilities of SDN, NFV and cloud-native architectures for scalability. Redshift Network’s holistic and multilayered real-time security eco system gives customers additional encryption and provides extra defense in edge networks. This is critical while accommodating sophisticated new protocols to handle the demands of network slicing, multi-access edge computing (MEC), and a disaggregated, radio access network (RAN),” said Sudhir Ispahani, CEO, Alpha Global Partners LLC.
“This impressive group of experienced advisors helps validate our company and real-time product offering with a combination of cloud, software and security services for the global carriers as they migrate to 5G technologies, and for large to mid-size enterprises including compliance sensitive industries including financial services, retail, energy and government agencies,” said RedShift Networks’ Co-Founder and CEO, Amitava Mukherjee.
