Nashville, TN - February 2, 2012 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that FastTrack Communications—a registered Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) in both Colorado and New Mexico—has licensed the Protector fraud management system. Protector is widely recognized as the most affordable and reliable tool for combatting telecom fraud.
"Protector will allow us to better identify and respond to fraudulent activity on our network," stated John Monday, Director of Network Engineering and Operations at FastTrack. "The prospect of monitoring usage records in real time and having an integrated case management and investigation tool is very appealing."
Protector's primary function is to identify suspicious and/or fraudulent activity, thereby providing real-time fraud protection. It does so by monitoring usage records for instances in which actual usage varies from expected usage, which is defined by a number of configurable metrics.
"In addition to Protector's technical features, we offer communication service providers a forum to share known fraudulent numbers and activity, so that carriers can mitigate exposure to telecom fraud as more effectively, "said Equinox Executive Vice President David West. "We are pleased to have FastTrack join the Equinox Information Systems family.
