TeleSign Launches Unified API for Suite of Authentication Products
Sept. 8, 2015
Authentication technology provider TeleSign last week unveiled a solution it said will enable developers to integrate multiple products for end-user verification and two-factor authentication through a single API. The Los Angeles-based company said Smart Verify will leverage a “smart decision engine” to enable companies to deliver the right mix of authentication methods for each customer.
“As online fraud continues to surge, it is more critical than ever to verify the identity of those registering and accessing online accounts,” said Steve Jillings, CEO of TeleSign. “Smart Verify brings to bear the full power of TeleSign’s product portfolio with a single API. The end result is that our customers can verify end users and stop account compromise in real-time and in the most reliable, cost-effective manner available.”
Separately, the company said it has partnered with Telefόnica to bring mobile-focused authentication products to customers of the global mobile network operator starting the U.K.
