HAUD, the Portomaso-headquartered industry leader in mobile telecoms security, has announced the opening of a new office in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in collaboration with leading technology consultancy, MS Consultora. The office opens as HAUD experiences significant international growth and will provide support and advice on security and fraud prevention for mobile network operators (MNOs) in the Caribbean and Latin American region.

CALA is one of the world's fastest growing mobile markets, with over 718 million mobile connections provided by approximately 80 MNOs. With a current penetration rate of only 52 per cent of the population, sustained growth is predicted to continue, with 890 Million connections forecasted by 2020.

Claire Cassar, CEO HAUD, said: "Extensive research has shown that the Latin American telecoms market is exposed to considerable levels of telco fraud, with some types that are unique to the region. Working with MS Consultora allows us to leverage expert knowledge of the local market and reach an established audience. 

HAUD provides MNOs with a range of products and services including an SMS Firewall Solution, ensuring messaging revenue assurance and improved customer experience through the elimination of fraud and spam traffic. HAUD's traffic audit service gives operators insight into the exact nature of traffic passing through their networks, and provides accurate forecasts of potential revenue that can be recovered by blocking unwanted traffic. A Managed Service is also available, giving reassurance to MNOs that their networks are under constant control.

Cassar continued "HAUD's solutions can bring value to operators in this market by helping them to stay in control of their network integrity and wholesale revenues while improving the overall customer experience through the elimination of spam and fraudulent traffic."

HAUD's expansion into a further international market is the latest milestone for the Maltese telecoms security experts. In addition to its offices in Portomaso, and Buenos Aires, HAUD also has other regional offices in UAE, Singapore, Croatia and Luxembourg.

HAUD brings telecoms security leaders to Malta in May

Malta's industry leading mobile telecoms security firm HAUD is hosting the fifth meeting of the group, one of the premier events on the mobile security calendar.
