Infobip builds stronger customer protection across mobile networks with new Vodafone partnership
Global cloud communications platform Infobip has announced a partnership with one of the largest mobile network operators (MNOs) in Germany Vodafone to ensure world-class mobile security for a potential 62 million smartphone users across the country. Vodafone joins Telekom Deutschland in enabling Infobip’s mobile authentication solution Mobile Identity, which will be available to enterprise customers in banking, retail and public sectors, so they can offer a secure and seamless experience to end customers.
The increase in fraud over the last two years has demonstrated the critical need for businesses to layer security. While two-factor-authentication (2FA) through email, SMS, or a push notification ensure a company can verify a person, it comes at the cost of customers having to switch channels to confirm, disrupting the customer experience.
By employing Infobip’s Mobile Identity solution, businesses will be able to easily verify customers via their mobile phone number across every stage of the journey, from account activation and onboarding to payment and app download. This all happens securely and silently in the background, without requiring the customer to enter a verification code.
The solutions available within Mobile Identity include Silent Mobile Verification, meaning customers can verify users in a smooth and unobtrusive way and SIM-Swap check, which captures real time insights to see if a mobile phone number has been swapped, protecting customers from this rising form of fraud.
