Etisalat Misr in Egypt has chosen an IBM FlashSystem to protect against fraud, and be able to significantly speed up real-time analytics to identify fraudulent activity in areas such as calls and unauthorized internet use.
With increasing competition, the company faced challenges in delivering enhanced performance, availability, analytics and security to its growing enterprise customer base.
Etisalat’s fraud management system depends on data received from network switches to detect fraud. However, it often took as long as three days to capture and analyze fraud data.
To resolve delays in its fraud management system, Etisalat Misr decided to use IBM FlashSystem V840.
With the new storage technology in place, Etisalat Misr is expected to improve the efficiency of its fraud management application, reducing the time spent on processing call records by a factor of 15 times and improving the speed of fraud detection by a factor of 37 times.
With IBM FlashSystem V840, Etisalat Misr is expected to enhance analytics performance while reducing storage footprint and lowering energy costs by speeding up real-time analytics of its Fraud Management System and making it capture and analyze fraud data virtually instantaneously instead of taking three days. This has already helped the company improve its operations by 300%.
