Nashville, TN - July 17, 2007 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Matrix Telecom has selected Protector 10 for real-time telecom fraud protection for up to 1 million usage records per day. Protector 10 will monitor call traffic on Matrix Telecom's communications network.
Protector 10 provides real-time fraud protection by identifying instances in which a customer's actual usage varies from expected usage in a manner that suggests fraudulent activity. The software has allowed hundreds of telephone and communications companies to reduce fraud losses by distinguishing fraud from legitimate customer usage.
"Telco fraud is a key issue for Matrix Telecom to address as we grow our business," said Todd Murcer, Director, Revenue Assurance. "Because Matrix Telecom is dedicated to minimizing telecom fraud and protecting our customers, we have elected to install Protector 10 on our network."
