Earlier this year the BroadForward converged firewall has received the GSMA nomination for Best Mobile Security.

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.
