Telefónica Spain joins forces with MACH to fight global roaming fraud

Telefónica Spain joins forces with MACH to fight global roaming fraud
Luxembourg, 15th January, 2008 – MACH, the leading global clearing and settlement partner for mobile based transactions, today announced that Telefónica Spain is using its Data Express and Fraud Protection solutions to achieve Near Real Time Roaming Data Exchange (NRTRDE) compliancy. MACH will monitor and protect Telefónica Spain against roaming fraud.
In Spain alone, Telefónica has more than 80 years’ operating experience and an expansive subscriber base spanning more than 21.8 million cellular telephone customers. As such, international roaming is key to Telefónica.
Manuel Franco, Director of Revenue Assurance & Fraud at Telefónica Spain commented; “MACH has one of the most advanced NRTRDE & Fraud Protection solutions available. As MACH provides Clearinghouse services & NRTDE to other Telefónica Group members as well as other leading global operator Groups it has for both solutions, the right level of expertise to combat roaming fraud.”
The Telefónica Group is considered an innovator within the industry and has invested over $8 billion for cutting-edge product development. It has revolutionised the digital music scene with the first flat rate for downloading music to mobiles and PCs.
Increased international roaming and new product developments accessible on a global scale can equal increased exposure to potential fraudsters; something which many operators have experienced the negative financial impact of. Telefónica has counteracted this risk by working closely with MACH, the leading innovators of roaming fraud protection.
As Lodewijk Cornelis, Head of New Sales & Marketing at MACH comments,
“With MACH Data Express and MACH Fraud Protection, Telefónica benefits from a fully comprehensive solution against roaming fraud. The operator will have early visibility of roaming subscriber activity and data intelligence and a global view with fraud ‘fingerprint’ matches across all networks. MACH also has a specialist ‘rapid responsive’ fraud protection unit with 24/7/365 surveillance, detection and monitoring of suspicious behaviour. MACH acts as the watch tower and has the capabilities to instantly shut-down roaming fraud.”
