Zumigo, Inc. Key Developments

Equifax Inc. Announces Joint Development Agreement with Zumigo

Equifax Inc. has announced a joint development agreement with Zumigo to develop a mobile network-based solution that streamlines m-commerce checkout and payments. This system will incorporate identity verification to help prevent mobile transaction fraud by authenticating mobile devices and validating device ownership. This solution leverages Equifax consumer credit data, carrier billing data and device location information to enable simple, secure mobile transactions, including financial and retail account activation. Unlike device application-based authentication solutions, this new platform will perform mobile identity verification over the wireless network. This will enable the solution to work with virtually any mobile device, without requiring a dedicated mobile application or demanding a change in consumer behavior. Most importantly to consumers, no consumer data of any kind is stored or cached on their smartphones as a result of the identification process. The network-based solution leverages Zumigo's unique ability to integrate with carrier billing systems to verify ownership of any phone within a consumer's account; thereby reducing fraud in mobile identity theft. When integrated into a mobile shopping cart, consumers will have the ability to consent to have their checkout forms automatically populated with personal information and payment options. For added security, the joint solution will use network location data to verify mobile transactions by confirming that the owner and their phone are in the vicinity of the merchant or ATM at the time of transaction.

Zumigo Announces Availability of their Zumigo Assure Security Solutions

Zumigo announced the availability of their Zumigo Assure security solutions. This API-based three-part service suite detects transactional fraud, authenticates mobile devices and validates device ownership. Zumigo's solutions are based on mobile and telephony data including device location. Zumigo has patent-pending technology allowing the company to locate mobile phones, even while roaming, supporting over 300 carriers globally. Zumigo Assure Radius validates card transactions by verifying that the card-owner and their phone are in the vicinity of the merchant or ATM at the time of transaction. Because this solution is network based, it works with any mobile phone, does not require a mobile app and does not demand a change in consumer behavior. Zumigo Assure Authentication validates iPhone and Android phones to ensure that only known devices can sign into systems such as banking or trading accounts. Through a simple SDK (software-development kit) that can be integrated into an existing application, Zumigo Assure Authentication validates the device in real-time using multiple out-of-band methodologies including location data. Being a passive authentication process, validation occurs without any additional consumer interactions such as out-of-band passwords or extra software. Zumigo Assure KYCD taps into the power of telephony-billing systems to validate that a phone a consumer adds to their account is in fact their phone. This critical validation step is essential to prevent account take-over attempts. Additionally, the KYCD services provide data to differentiate between a long-held contract phone and a recently purchased prepaid "throw-away" phone.
