Privacy-enhanced services help protect consumers and business by improving online identity verification, reducing fraud and identity theft
TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2018 /CNW/ - EnStream, a joint venture of Bell, Rogers and TELUS, today announced enhancements to its portfolio of identity verification and device authentication services that use real-time mobile network and account information to protect and confirm a consumer's online identity. The new services include enhanced analytics for name and address matching, mobile device authentication and mobile location services covering over 90% of the Canadian market, without requiring any pre-loaded software on mobile devices.
"Validating identity is perhaps one of the biggest challenges on the Internet today, especially with the move to mobile," said Robert Blumenthal, Chief Identity Officer at EnStream. "Unlike other threat detection systems, real-time information about mobile subscribers and their devices provides reliable and definitive information to improve the user experience while mitigating risk and fraud."
EnStream services are used today by a wide variety of customers and applications with end-user consent, including:
Banking and Financial Services – As an independent data source for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance, as well as device and contact number verification
Retail and Payments – Instant credit card issuance and account opening
Lotteries and Gaming – Location verification for service delivery
Roadside Assistance – Enhanced vehicle tracking and dispatch
Transportation & Logistics – Vehicle tracking and routing
EnStream's identity verification services are secure and private – no personally identifiable information is provided to third party companies without end-user consent.
EnStream is a joint venture of Canada's leading mobile telecom companies – Bell Mobility, Rogers Communications and TELUS Communications – that provides identity verification and authentication services for 3rd party applications. Intended for banks, credit bureaus, insurance companies, government, utilities and many others, these services can help provide timely and accurate verification of mobile subscriber identity and related account and service information, with end-user consent, as a means to enhance user convenience and reduce identity theft and fraud.
