LONDON, [November 11, 2019] – JT has joined forces with CKH Innovations Opportunities Development (CKH IOD), a unit of CK Hutchison’s telecom division, enabling JT to expand its fraud detection services globally for financial institutions.
Building on their already successful commercial relationship in the UK, JT will look to expand its fraud detection service to other 3Group operators in Europe and Asia using CKH IOD’s Global Digital Hub platform, which provides access to 3Group’s affiliate network of mobile operators.
The service has been developed in response to the growing need for financial institutions and digital service providers to verify the identity of customers using matched data and to help ensure that mobile device details supplied in each case have not been compromised.
JT’s impressive reach as a global operator means it will be one of a select group of partners to connect to CKH IOD’s Global Digital Hub platform and offer Know Your Customer (KYC) match services to the market.
Financial institutions will be able to verify data they have been given matches that for a 3Group subscriber to provide the confidence they need on key operational decisions.
JT’s fraud protection service also provides important live background checks to ensure a customer’s device hasn’t been compromised. These checks can assist in preventing SIM-swap fraud and call-divert fraud, two methods increasingly used by criminals globally to gain access to customers’ data.
Tom Noel, Managing Director of JT’s International Division, said: “This partnership is a testament to the quality of services the JT teams have developed and our reputation as a trusted partner for mobile network operators. As a cross-operator, we have been able to provide a service which standardises data from mobile operators so that organisations receive information that provides the confidence they need to make verification decisions. As a team we are really pleased to be part of this launch, with CKH IOD’s Global Digital Hub.”
Susan Buttsworth, CEO, CKH IOD said: ”Utilising the scale and reach of our Global Digital Hub, we are able to offer our trusted network of partners convenient access to 3Group’s affiliate network of mobile operators. This partnership enables us to give financial institutions higher levels of customer authentication, and ultimately help protect consumers from fraud.”
