TeleSign Corporation Key Developments

TeleSign Announces the Launch of TeleSign Smart Verify

TeleSign announced the launch of TeleSign Smart Verify, a new unified API that simplifies end-user verification and two-factor authentication (2FA) for online and mobile app-based accounts to help prevent fraud and stop account compromise. TeleSign Smart Verify uses a proprietary “Smart Decision Engine” that provides a configurable workflow to determine the optimal sequencing of verification and authentication methods – choosing between SMS, voice or push notifications. With TeleSign Smart Verify, developers can: Build Simple Integration of Intelligent Workflows – With a single API, developers can utilize a configurable verification workflow based on industry best practices and without the need to integrate multiple APIs; Reduce Fraudulent Activity – Detect potential fraud with patented real-time analytics of a phone number’s attributes, usage and fraud history to automatically determine if a verification process should proceed; Manage Verification Costs – Use the optimal verification methods in each scenario, such as push notifications to mobile app users instead of SMS messages, and eliminating SMS messages being sent to non-SMS enabled numbers; Gain Better Visibility – Track user verification and authentication activity as well as costs incurred with a single reporting tool; Smart Verify combines multiple TeleSign products, including PhoneID, Push Verify and SMS & Voice Verification, into a single, unified API that uses the proprietary Smart Decision Engine to help increase completion rates and better manage costs all while minimizing the development effort needed to get started.

TeleSign Speeds Mobile App Verification with Simple, Secure Auto Verify

TeleSign announced the launch of TeleSign Auto Verify, a new lightweight software development kit (SDK) for mobile app developers that streamlines the account verification process while providing a more reliable and cost-effective method than SMS-based verification alone. TeleSign Auto Verify seamlessly integrates with new or existing mobile apps and verification processes and leverages a proprietary network signaling method to ensure greater completion rates without the need for one-time passcodes (OTPs) to be sent to the consumer’s mobile phone and manually entered, the way verification is most commonly experienced. This new method of delivering assurance removes the big barriers to account verification “user friction and low conversion rates “by fully automating the process and removing the need for user interaction. TeleSign Auto Verify also introduced a subscription model that only charges for completed transactions and can provide standardized global rates regardless of where the user being verified is located. TeleSign customers in markets including social, gaming, dating, Over-The-Top (OTT) and mobile commerce (“m-commerce”) are implementing TeleSign Auto Verify to simplify: Mobile App User Registration " Integrating it into a mobile app to streamline the verification of a user’s mobile phone number during account creation using carrier signaling instead of traditional SMS OTP to increase conversion rates and improve the end user experience. Transaction Verification " Increasing the assurance for high value transactions, such as money transfers, payment transactions, and password changes, by requesting and then verifying, in real time, a user’s phone number within their mobile app. Phone Number Verification " Ensuring an existing end user has a legitimate phone number attached to each account by seamlessly verifying the number in the background, while users interact with the mobile app as usual. The new TeleSign Auto Verify SDK complements TeleSign’s existing Push Verify SDK to provide a complete solution for verifying and securing user accounts within native mobile applications. TeleSign Auto Verify is available as a 34Kb SDK for Android versions 4.1.x and higher, and is easily embedded into new or existing mobile apps and verification processes, while giving developers complete control over the branding and user experience.
