LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- TeleSign has today announced that Australia's Telstra has made a strategic investment in the company.
TeleSign has pioneered Mobile Identity by creating mobile phone-based verification tools for online accounts. Many of the world's largest companies use TeleSign to manage and maintain the integrity of their customer networks by detecting suspicious users before account creation, and protecting their existing users from account compromise.
Mark Sherman, Telstra Ventures Managing Director, explains how the digital revolution is pushing mobile operators to seek ways to unlock opportunities for consumers to use their mobile to complement their online presence, without being overshadowed by security concerns.
"The TeleSign solution brings additional security to data and identity, enabling a safe and confident service experience. We are excited to be part of the journey as the company continues to expand globally," said Sherman.
"We hope to be able to offer a range of mobile identity solutions from this innovative provider and we will work closely with TeleSign to explore opportunities to bring this technology to our own customers," he added.
TeleSign's technology has been embraced by industries such as banking, entertainment and eCommerce to establish their users' mobile identity. TeleSign recently closed a USD$40 million Series B financing round, enabling the company to invest aggressively in new innovation and growth opportunities.
Steve Jillings, TeleSign's CEO, comments on how the relationship with Telstra will help accelerate growth in the Asia Pacific market enabling the company to leverage Telstra's well established reputation and customer relationships.
"Companies are searching for simple-to-use, effective security solutions that can serve a global user base. This investment will allow us to work closely with Telstra, combining our expertise and their regional experience to better serve customer needs," says Steve Jillings, TeleSign's CEO.
"TeleSign has been very successful at making the internet a safer and more secure place by protecting businesses and users from fraud," said Jillings. "We've doubled revenue every year for the last four years and with a host of new products being readied for launch, we expect that growth to continue. The Telstra investment gives us additional resources to innovate even faster and continue our global expansion as we move toward our goal of an IPO."
TeleSign's rapid innovation and highly reliable services have earned the trust of the world's largest companies, protecting 3.5 billion accounts in more than 200 countries. TeleSign provides services to a global client base, including nine of the top ten US web properties and 20 of the top 25 globally.
