Oculeus, a leading provider of innovative telecommunications solutions, on Tuesday announced that the company has won the Cybersecurity Excellence Award in the category for Communications Fraud Protection for the second year in a row.
Oculeus won this award for the company’s recently launched Oculeus®-Protect service for protecting enterprises against PBX hacking and toll fraud.
Oculeus-Protect is a real-time, Cloud-based telecoms fraud protection service. The Oculeus-Protect service directly protects enterprise PBX systems and voice telephony networks from hacking and fraud risks and is completely independent of an enterprise’s telecommunications service provider and its telecoms fraud prevention efforts.
The service provides an intelligent and automated framework to efficiently prevent false charges resulting from unauthorised usage of enterprise telecommunication channels.
The technology behind the service is based on anomaly detection and blocks any suspicious traffic that is confirmed to be fraudulent within milliseconds.
“We are excited to win this award for the second year in a row and receive this recognition for our unique approach for providing enterprises with protection against telecoms fraud,” said Arnd Baranowksi, CEO of Oculeus.
“Our new service for protecting against telecoms fraud is attracting a lot of interest worldwide from both enterprises and telcos to overcome the many drawbacks of insufficient existing practices.”
Telcos and other communications service providers also can use the Oculeus-Protect service as the base for offering a telecoms fraud protection service to their enterprise customers.
