Global mobile network operator fuels the launch of TeleSign Mobile

Los Angeles, CA: TeleSign, an Internet security and authentication leader, today announced the acquisition of a global SMS provider to launch TeleSign Mobile, the Messaging Services Division of TeleSign. TeleSign Mobile’s network access and direct connections to global operators enhances TeleSign’s suite of security and authentication solutions currently used by the largest and most visible global consumer web companies.

 

The acquisition will enable TeleSign to improve upon its market-leading fraud prevention services and drive continued product innovation. Direct access to data will power a new wave of fraud-prevention and smarter authentication products.

TeleSign, by virtue of the acquisition, now owns and manages its own GSMA-licensed mobile messaging network with direct network access to operators around the world. This strategic move will ensure high performance, transparency, and long-term stability in cost and service availability.

“The work we have done to create TeleSign Mobile lets us connect directly to over 800 GSM operators and we’ve added a team of SMS experts to our quality practice, enabling us to offer the highest level of service,” said TeleSign CTO, Charles McColgan. “Additionally, the acquisition gives us direct access to data that will continue to enhance our comprehensive security and authentication products.”

“The business thesis we built around security, mobility, data, and cloud services, has become a reality and the market acceptance has been beyond our expectations. Our unique offerings have been validated by the analyst community and by our large global clients who continue to increase their use of our services and subscribe to additional intelligence products,” said Steve Jillings, CEO, TeleSign. “We are very excited to announce TeleSign Mobile.”

In addition to enhancing TeleSign’s core security and authentication products, TeleSign Mobile offers global SMS services and self-service tools that are purpose-built to serve the business automation needs provided by a high-quality mobile messaging platform.
