Bouygues Telecom selects TeleSign to protect users' mobile identity

Wednesday 27 November 2019 | 10:17 CET | News
French operator Bouygues Telecom has agreed a partnership with TeleSign, a US-based provider of user verification and CPaaS services owned by BICS (Belgacom International Carrier Services). Under the deal, Bouygues will gain access to TeleSign's mobile identity products to protect users from online fraud and identity theft. Through APIs that deliver user verification, these products help prevent criminal activities such as SIM swap and synthetic identity theft, which allow fraudsters to carry out account takeover (ATO) attacks.
