Subex has announced a collaboration with Telefonica to offer the new version of ROC Fraud Management.

FREMONT, CA: Subex, the Digital Trust leader, has announced a collaboration with Telefonica, one of the world's largest providers of mobile networks, to offer the new version of ROC Fraud Management. As part of the commitment, Subex's ROC Fraud Management will be deployed by the operator to every operator in Telefonica's Hispam unit: Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, and Colombia.

Telefonica is widely regarded as one of the most creative businesses on the digital front by consistently supplying its consumers with trusted and safe new-age products. As a torchbearer in the battle against fraud, Telefonica was willing to find the right partner to allow them to switch from fraud detection and management to a progressive approach to fraud prevention.

Telefonica will utilize the Big Data Hadoop architecture of the solution through ROC Fraud Management to minimize fraud detection time, enhance scalability, and simplify integration with Telefonica's local data lakes. Due to its open-source functionalities and low hardware footprint, the solution will also allow Telefonica to decrease the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Finally, Telefonica will leverage ROC Fraud Management's AI/ML and Signaling Intelligence assets to identify and prevent traditional and new-age fraud through voice, data, and digital services.

Commenting on the partnership Shankar Roddam, Whole-Time Director & Chief Operating Officer, Subex, said, "This win marks another chapter in our long-standing relationship with the Telefonica group. It is extremely positive to see Telefonica, one of the largest operators in the world, taking such proactive measures to combat telecom fraud. It gives Subex immense pride to be working with them to protect their customers, in addition to our existing partnership with Telefonica's cybersecurity venture. Subex was selected post a very competitive and diligent evaluation process, which pitted us against all other fraud management vendors in the market."

Miguel Sancho Caceres, Deputy Global Director of Security, said, "Improving our effectiveness in the fight against fraud is one of the key priorities for us at Telefonica. Towards this goal, we consider it imperative to ensure that our services are equipped with state-of-the-art fraud prevention capabilities. To make this reality, we are pleased to partner with Subex and deploy the latest version of their ROC Fraud Management solution. This will ensure much faster processing and detection times, providing far more flexibility, easier access, and agility to our business operations."
