Equinox Releases Protector 98

New Version Offers Enhanced Flexibility and Advanced Fraud Detection Features

NASHVILLE, TN - Aug. 10, 1998 - Equinox Information Systems, a leading provider of custom and commercial software to the telecommunications industry, today announced the release of Protector 98. Protector 98 is an extraordinarily powerful telecom fraud management application that provides wireline carriers with the ability to proactively manage their fraud risk, resulting in increased revenue, subscriber satisfaction, and reduced operating costs.

"For years we have watched our fraud control solutions grow and change," says Byron Middendorf, CEO of Equinox Information Systems. "With Protector 98, our software has reached a new level in terms of how it looks, how it works, and the things it can do. I am certain our customers currently using Protector and Detector will find Protector 98 builds upon the strengths of previous versions, and that prospective customers will recognize the power and cost effectiveness of this product."

Protector 98 is a real-time fraud monitoring solution which tracks usage by destination (Domestic, International, High-Fraud Countries & NPAs, and Dollar Usage) and by billing entity (ANI, Authcode, Calling Card, Toll Free Number, and Customer). User-defined algorithms identify potential fraud based on the number of calls, minutes, dollar-usage, invalid attempts, and other parameters. Alerts are immediately reported through a variety of channels.

Protector 98 adds powerful new features and an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to help carriers effectively identify and eliminate fraudulent traffic with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy. New features include:

  • 32-bit Code: fully compatible with Windows 95 and NT
  • Simultaneous Tracking of Calls, Minutes, and Dollars
  • Separate Weekday, Weekend, and Holiday Thresholds
  • Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Credit Limit Monitoring
  • Profile Based Thresholds
  • Detailed History Tables
  • Graphical Interfaces
  • Context Sensitive Help

As a recommended fraud solution provider for Nortel, DSC, and Harris switches, Protector is currently used by more than 100 customers to monitor over 18 billion calls per year. The modular design of Protector 98 will allow carriers to cater their fraud management based on their unique network, customers, and traffic, while retaining the ability to respond to new techniques and tactics employed by toll thieves.
