SIMbox bypass detection

SIMBuster: bypass detection with guaranteed results


FraudBuster has developed the SIMBuster: an expert system designed to continuously monitor the mobile traffic of the Operator (CDRs) to detect fraudulent usage in real-time. It is operated as a managed solution and relies on powerful detection rules that are permanently updated by our team of Fraud Analysts.

SIMBuster is efficient against SIMbox, International SIMbox and Refiling Fraud.


Unmatched Performance

  • 18min MoU
  • FraudBuster detects SIMboxes after only 18min of traffic in average (and less than 60 min guaranteed by SLA).

  • <1‰
  • FraudBuster’s performance adds precision to speed of detection, with usually less than 1‰ false positives (and less than1% guaranteed).

  • 460,000,000 subs
  • FraudBuster currently protects almost half a billion mobile subscribers worldwide.

    The SIMBuster is totally scalable: FraudBuster can guarantee the same level of service to operators from 150k to 160M subscribers without sacrificing performance.

  • 5,000,000 SIMs
  • In 2016 only, FraudBuster detected nearly 5 million fraudulent SIM cards.

    On massively afflicted markets, FraudBuster was able to detect as much as 15,000 genuinely fraudulent SIMs per day to recover traffic.
    From a dozen units to dozens of thousands, performance is unaltered.

Expected Results
