Los Angeles and New York – March 20, 2012- TeleSign, a market leader in Internet fraud prevention and intelligent authentication, and Subuno, a fraud prevention SaaS platform that aggregates fraud screening data solutions, today announced a partnership to offer TeleSign’s PhoneID within the Subuno platform.
Subuno’s fraud detection platform is geared towards small and medium sized merchants that want the flexibility and power of a full-featured solution without the big price tag.
TeleSign’s patented PhoneID provides detailed information about phone numbers anywhere in the world, including phone type and registration location information. Since there is higher risk of fraud associated with certain types of phone numbers used during ecommerce transactions, Subuno’s clients can create rules using information provided by PhoneID to detect suspicious numbers and flag potentially fraudulent orders.
Darren Berkovitz, co-founder and Vice President of TeleSign stated: “For small and medium sized merchants, Subuno provides a great marketplace to access different fraud prevention technologies, including TeleSign’s patented PhoneID.”
Ed Lin, co-founder of Subuno, concurred. “This partnership will enable online SMBs to automate fraud prevention and significantly cut fraud based on phone numbers. Having TeleSign’s PhoneID in our lineup of anti-fraud solutions will help our clients identify untraceable telephone numbers and use the information to make better decisions.”
Subuno is a provider of a fraud screening software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that allows merchants to leverage and manage multiple fraud detection solutions and implement a multi-layered fraud screening approach. Without requiring technical knowledge, Subuno helps users easily automate their fraud screening flow and speed up the manual review process.
