TeleSign Corporation Key Developments

TeleSign Hires Tom Powledge as Chief Product Officer

TeleSign announced it has hired Tom Powledge as Chief Product Officer, reporting directly to CEO Aled Miles. In this newly created role, he is responsible for overseeing product strategy and management at TeleSign. Powledge comes to TeleSign from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) where he was the Vice President and General Manager for ArcSign. In this role, Powledge was responsible for strategy, product management, business development and engineering of HPE’s security information and event management product. Prior to HPE, Powledge was Vice President of Managed Security Services at Cisco Systems, where he led all aspects of service development and delivery for the team that provides advanced threat detection and security management to enterprises around the globe.

TeleSign Strengthens Mobile Identity Portfolio with Behavior ID Launch

TeleSign announced the launch of TeleSign Behavior ID, a new offering that enables web and mobile applications to measure and analyze a user’s behavioral biometrics in order to provide continuous authentication, even after the user has been verified with traditional security measures such as passwords. The product works behind-the-scenes to collect and evaluate a complex mix of mouse dynamics, keystrokes, graphical user interface (GUI) interaction and advanced behavioral algorithms to establish a unique user profile. With this profile, Behavior ID can help prevent account takeover attempts even if a hacker is in possession of a user’s correct account credentials.

TeleSign Announces Partnership with Orange

TeleSign announced a new agreement with Orange to deliver Mobile Identity and Fraud Prevention services in 2016. This new partnership brings together TeleSign’s portfolio of authentication and mobile identity solutions with Orange’s unique insights about its network and subscribers. This combination will lead to the delivery of enhanced mobile identity services and fraud prevention offerings that provide increased security around online account creation and ongoing account access. The combined services from TeleSign and Orange will deliver greater intelligence to TeleSign’s Mobile Identity portfolio, which is used by the Internet properties, retailers and financial institutions. The partnership will protect consumers from account compromise, falsely declined payments, and the fraud and spam associated with fake users. Consumers will also enjoy a more convenient and secure experience, while brands enjoy a stronger reputation and cost savings as a result. These new services are complementary to the popular GSMA Mobile Connect initiative, which was launched at Mobile World Congress last year and supported by Orange, with an API that easily integrates into partner sites and helps users safely identify themselves online. The TeleSign/Orange services are expected to roll out across several Orange properties in 2016, covering millions of mobile subscribers.
