Mobile Number Intelligence™ to fight fraud and verify identity

As a business, a customer mobile telephone number is often a key pillar in your Know Your Customer (KYC) engagement strategy, whether to manage notifications, ordering or fulfilment.

However, the objective of building 2-way trust in this relationship is becoming harder to achieve. For a business, how do you know that the number being provided is genuine, belongs to the person giving it to you and has not been compromised? For a consumer, how do you know that your number has not been hijacked and used without your knowledge?

Verify from TMT Analysis

Verify offers a wide range of Mobile intelligence data attributes centred around the mobile telephone number. These data attributes help you to affirm customer identity, derive trust in the provenance of a given number and identify when suspicious activity such as account takeover might have taken place.

Verify blends together several authoritative data sources, including data directly from the Mobile Network Operators to offer the most comprehensive possible answers to your questions, whilst adding little or no friction to your end-user experience.

We help our customers in this process through our industry leading knowledge of the mobile eco-system, through the use of our own data that offer insight on billions of numbers and how we combine different sources to best effect.

Verify data attributes can be used in a variety of scenarios to reduce friction and increase trust throughout your user experience. These include:

Verify On-boarding

Allows you to comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements and safely on-board customers, reduce mistakes, fake accounts and incorrect information by confirming the ownership and history of a number, including relating it to a real person.

Verify Protect

Guards against fraud by alerting you to the potential that a device has been compromised, through attacks such as SIM Swap.

Verify Trust Score

Easily integrate advanced number intelligence through a unique blend of different data that provide an explicit, actionable trust score for a number.

Verify Data Cleansing

Eliminate old or inaccurate data by performing a real-time liveness check on numbers to ensure that they remain in use.

Verify On-boarding

On-board new customers with low friction and high assurance levels using telephony data.

From the data that you have already gathered from your potential customer TMT Verify can tell you if the number:

Verify Protect

Guard against SIM Swap fraud and other forms of Account Takeover.

For a given phone number Verify Protect can alert you in real-time to potential compromises, meaning that you only need to increase the end user friction in your process when you have good reasons to suspect fraud.

Use Case – Low friction customer on-boarding:

If you are an organisation who uses a mobile number as a communication or fulfilment channel for your customers, then being able to both check a number is genuine, and tie that number to a real person is a check that can save time and ultimately money.

If you can perform the check without the direct involvement of your new potential customer, then you are achieving that delicate balance of increasing security whilst maintaining a low-friction user experience.

Verify is used by a range of organisations for this purpose. Whether used at a simple level to identify erroneous or miss-keyed numbers, or in a more complex environment it is used to provide independent assurance that the number really belongs to the person who you think it does, Verify can significantly boost your assurance levels and allow you to know that when you communicate with your new customer via their mobile, you are talking to the right person. Every time.

Verify Data Cleansing

Allowing you to know which numbers you have are no longer active, saving you time and money.

Verify Trust Score

An easy-to-consume trustworthiness score around a given number, based upon a unique combination of data sources.

The score is calculated from the current status of the number, how old the number is, what levels of activity the number has displayed over time, whether it belongs on identified fraud lists and many other factors.

How Does It Work?

TMT Verify is available through a highly flexible HTTP API. In each request you provide the telephone number, together with the data attribute(s) and associated data you want to see. Our geographically redundant platform will use the best combination of data sources to retrieve the answers, and normalise the response so that you can always receive the output in the same format regardless of the number or country you query.

In addition, for Verify Data Cleansing, you can also upload a file containing a list of numbers. The Verify platform will check and securely return you the results, allowing regular cleaning of the numbers in your database.

Our Data

We gather the data used to power TMT Verify from over 80 countries World-Wide direct from regulators, Mobile Network Operators and other trusted 3rd party sources.

Note that access to some data sources require explicit approval from the relevant Mobile Network Operators. We will be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail and help you manage the approval process where needed.
