Customer Highlights
Flash Networks has the largest market share in the mobile Internet optimization and monetization market with hundreds of deployments, serving over one billion subscribers worldwide.

Flash Networks began developing a parental control solution in 2018. For the first time, it decided to embed a relational database management system, MySQL Enterprise Edition, in its products.

"We selected MySQL Enterprise Edition because it is carrier-grade, offers 5-nines availability, has very advanced security features, and a first-rate support. Leveraging it for assessment, preventive controls, and detective controls we were able to address key GDPR requirements and full compliance with GDPR. Last but not least, it is excellently priced - all of which have contributed to our highly successful new offering to mobile operators worldwide."

It gives us redundancy through the active-active replication with no single point of failure, high performance for maximum uptime, and full support from a world-class vendor.
