Nashville, TN - September 1, 2009 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Telekenex, a provider of enterprise voice and data services, has licensed Protector 10 to monitor call and data usage records for real-time fraud detection. Protector 10 software integrates with Telekenex's VoIP network to monitor for communications fraud on their Genband C3 and Broadsoft M6 switches.
Protector offers 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. Over the last twenty years, Protector has saved carriers millions of dollars in fraud losses by distinguishing communications fraud from legitimate customer usage. The agreement with Telekenex also includes software implementation, training services, and a full year of maintenance and support.
"Equinox Information Systems is known as a leader in the communications industry for fraud management and mitigation. After experiencing a minor fraud event, we knew we could count on Equinox to provide a proven solution to mitigate against any further losses," stated Bob Finley, Chief Financial Officer of Telekenex. "By deploying Protector, Telekenex now has a proven system that protects our customers, shareholders, and employees from the financial pitfalls of communications fraud."
"Equinox is always encouraged when a new customer chooses Protector over the competition," said David West, Equinox Executive Vice President. "We are proud to add Telekenex to our customer list, and we look forward to a long relationship supporting Telekenex's use of Protector 10 software."
