Prestigious International Awards Program Honors Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 6, 2022 – CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market, today announced that Telesign, the leading provider of customer identity and engagement solutions, has been selected as winner of the “Secure Communications Solution Provider of the Year” award in the 6th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.

Telesign connects, protects, and defends companies, customers, and the digital interactions between them. With powerful AI that delivers identity with speed, accuracy, and global reach, Telesign enables Continuous Trust. Empowering companies to transact, communicate, and engage with their customers free of fear, Continuous Trust makes the promise of the digital economy possible.

Telesign’s machine learning model harnesses intelligence from global traffic patterns, phone data attributes, phone number velocities, and number ranges to determine the risk level of a phone number. Telesign’s explainable Artificial Intelligence (AI) delivers a reputation score and recommends an action. Businesses also use Telesign’s International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF) detection as a security layer before delivering one-time passcodes or triggering automatic callbacks.

In addition to blocking communications fraud, Telesign enables businesses to protect employees and customers anonymously while increasing security with number masking. Number masking enables anonymous communications between two parties without sharing personal phone numbers or sensitive data.

“We’ve always thought of ourselves as being in the business of ‘trust.’ People long to connect with each other and the companies they love without compromise. Our aim is to make the digital world a safer place, where trust is continuous, particularly at a time when billions of targets and trillions of dollars are at stake as fraud becomes increasingly more sophisticated,” said Joe Burton, CEO of Telesign. “It’s a tremendous honor to receive this award. It reaffirms the trust placed in us by our customers and it is a reminder of the work we are doing to connect, protect and defend people as they live their lives digitally.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,100 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.

“We’re seeing a resurgence of IRSF losses, as fraudsters acquire a range of phone numbers from an International Premium Rate Number Provider and then both parties receive a share of the revenue for every call that’s placed and for every message sent. Over the last couple of years, fraudsters have deployed new, sophisticated tactics to generate a higher volume of calls,” said James Johnson, managing director of CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Using advanced machine learning that evaluates global traffic patterns, phone data attributes, and the world’s largest fraud database, Telesign Intelligence delivers comprehensive phone number intelligence to fight IRSF losses and protect against fraud. Congratulations to Telesign for taking home our ‘Secure Communications Solution Provider of the Year’ award.”
