  • Reputation monitoring and management that enables businesses to stop inaccurate spam labeling and track reputation health over time;
  • The Secure Call feature that prevents imposters from spoofing a business’ phone number and authenticates all calls with a fraud filter that stops unverified calls;
  • Self-serve analytics with timely insights and actionable steps to improve business performance.

“At Samsung, we are dedicated to making the mobile experience safer and more engaging for our customers,” Inkang Song, VP and Head of Technology Strategy Group, Mobile Communication Business, Samsung Electronics said. “We are excited to continue our partnership with Hiya to offer best-in-class solutions to our customers across the globe.”
