Prevent fraud & streamline caller authentication

Smartnumbers Protect is a unique cloud-based platform that uses AI and the power of community to help prevent contact centre fraud and authenticate customers in real time.

Contact centre security pre and post answering a call

Pre-answer analysis

Proactive caller analysis and risk assessment to enable faster authentication and fraud prevention before a call is answered. With our pre-answer analysis we:

Examine call signalling data to spot anomalies such as withheld numbers, number spoofing and calls from high risk numbers.

Analyse the caller information for numbers of confirmed fraudsters shared by the consortium.

Assign a risk score before the caller reaches the IVR or agent, enabling a friction-free experience for legitimate customers.

Post-call analysis

Mitigate fraud losses by establishing processes and gathering insight to protect your organisation and customers. With our post-call analysis, we help:

Prevent new cases of fraud by managing high risk callers, leaving low risk callers with a quick, seamless authentication experience in the IVR or with an agent.

Understand the true scale of fraud and identify trends with reports that give insight into fraudster behaviour.

Prevent fraud within the wider community by sharing fraud data with consortium members.
