TeleSign Expands Global Services through Partnership with Proximus

Share

TeleSign, a leader in authentication and communication services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BICS, today announced a new partnership with Proximus, the largest telecommunications company in Belgium. This partnership will provide TeleSign’s fraud risk product portfolio to provide regional and international companies with a presence in Belgium.

As the mobile identity ecosystem continues to rapidly evolve globally, it is more important than ever that businesses ensure the strongest authentication and verification measures to secure end-user accounts and prevent fraud, especially in the financial sector. According to PwC, almost two-thirds (65 percent) of companies in Belgium experienced economic crime in the last two years, compared to under half (49 percent) globally. Fraud such as account take over (ATO) through SIM swap and porting attacks can be significantly expensive to both end users and businesses. With the strength of Proximus’ insights and TeleSign’s expertise, this partnership will aid businesses in complying with the new EU Payment Services Directive, PSD2 and its two core use cases – Know Your Customer (KYC) and Strong Customer Authentication (SCA).

This new partnership with Proximus highlights the increasing importance of Mobile Identity and the key role played by Mobile Operators in digital transformation. It represents a new opportunity to Mobile Operators worldwide to participate in a Global Mobile Identity ecosystem and improve the security of their end users online.

“TeleSign helps its customers globally to protect and prevent fraudulent activity for the end user and businesses,” said Pierre Demarche, VP of Products at TeleSign. “Telesign has existing partnerships with other Mobile Operators in multiple geographies, and keeps expanding its partnership with Mobile Operators worldwide, so we have a deep understanding of how Mobile Identity can be leveraged to provide end-to-end security experience. This protection not only works to prevent costly fraud, but also enhances the user experience.”

“As the leading telecommunications company in Belgium, quality of data and security services to our customers is top of mind, and so is being able to develop services that will protect our customers from fraudulent activity,” said Jeroen Degadt, Director Carrier and Wholesale at Proximus. “Partnering with TeleSign, a global neutral aggregator, was the clear choice. With access to TeleSign’s fraud risk product portfolio, we will be able to provide increased security and assurance for our customers across the country.”

TeleSign is a trusted partner to 21 of the top 25 global websites and mobile applications, enabling them to securely and effectively communicate with billions of end-user accounts. TeleSign offers telecommunications companies like Proximus the ability to secure their customer base and protect users from fraud and identity theft.

Bermuda Further Enhances Its International Appeal as Incorporated Segregated Accounts Companies Legislation Comes Into Effect22.1.2020 01:10:00 EETPress release

Bermuda’s Incorporated Segregated Accounts Companies Act 2019 (ISAC Act) came into effect on January 15, 2020, providing multiple industries with yet another compelling reason for choosing to domicile their business on island. The ISAC Act, a stand-alone piece of legislation and a companion statute to the Segregated Accounts Companies Act 2000, further enhances Bermuda’s legislative framework by introducing a new and innovative company structure to cater to the needs of existing and prospective businesses. ISACs enable the creation of corporate group structures to operate multiple businesses or ‘accounts’, each ring-fenced with its own separate legal identity, under one umbrella. As such, each account has the capacity, rights, powers and privileges of a natural person, including the right to enter into contracts with other accounts under the ISAC and with the ISAC itself.
