LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- TeleSign announced today that Network Products Guide, industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has selected PhoneID Score for the 9th Annual 2014 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards in the Best Products category. These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world's premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners were honored in San Francisco on Monday, June 23, 2014 during the 9th annual dinner and presentations.

PhoneID Score provides a reputation score, a risk assessment, and a recommendation for action, based on a user's phone number. Online service providers and mobile apps currently use PhoneID Score to determine if they will issue a new account, allow but monitor a new account, or block the registration. The score, risk assessment and recommendation are produced in real time, based on a scoring algorithm which is updated dynamically in response to user behavior, traffic patterns, reported fraud and global fraud trends.

"It is a great honor to be recognized by Network Products Guide for our work on PhoneID Score," said Steve Jillings, CEO for TeleSign. "We are very proud of the product's proven ability to prevent large scale fraud for our customers. We believe that the success of this product validates the strength of a user's phone number as their online identity -- their Mobile Identity."
