Vodafone: Governments have direct access to our Network Data Centers.
The world’s second largest mobile carrier and network provider Vodafone has confirmed statements that some governments has direct access to their Data Centers. The company has over 400 million users around the world. Vodafone revealed this in a Law Enforcement Disclosure Reports.
This is the first time the company has broken its silence over surveillance by governments. Many government authorities have direct access to the network Data Centers which allows them to listen and record all the conversations.
While their are some nations whose governments have given an explanation and warranty for the surveillance, at the same time there are some countries where government and security authorities don’t provide a pre-notice or explanation on the surveollance, such countries include:
• South Africa
• Turkey, and more…
The Guardian told in its reports that some countries are even attaching wires directly to the Data Centers of the network providers.
The network provider said, “In our view, it is governments – not communications operators – who hold the primary duty to provide greater transparency on the number of agencies and authority demands issued to operators.”
Vodafone has denied revealing the names of the countries and security authorities because it could lead to banning of the license of the company and even imprisonment of its staff.
