Skype screens robocalls with TeleSign's Score platform

Thursday 4 June 2020 | 11:16 CET | News
TeleSign entered a new partnership with Microsoft's Skype to screen robocalls using TeleSign's flagship digital identity platform Score. By implementing Score, Skype is able to action against calls that are likely of a fraudulent origin. In this capacity Score is able to behave as an inbound spam filter while also preventing other types of communication fraud such as International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF). Since implementing the TeleSign platform, Skype has been able to action upon over 1 million fraudulent calls per day.
