Revenue Share Fraud

Develop a protective barrier to unwanted premium-rate termination calls

Stop The Abuse of International Premium Rate Numbers

International Revenue Sharing Fraud (IRSF) is the most persistent type of fraud within the telecom industry. Fraudsters often utilize illegal resources to gain access to an operator’s network in order to bring traffic to phone numbers obtained from an International Premium Rate Number provider.

This is the most challenging fraud to eliminate due to the complexity of the mobile network system and the involvement of multiple operators, usually its perpetuated by organized groups using illegal connections to bring a large volume of calls into high cost 'revenue share' service numbers, taking advantage on the roaming capabilities of SIM cards

Over 750 Telecom companies, in more than 150 countries, are scaling their business with Mobileum solutions.

Integrated Hotlists For Enhanced Detection

Yates Fraud Consulting, in partnership with Mobileum makes possible for RAID to hold a database with over 90,000 IRS test numbers.
Used as a list along with GSMA High Risk Range List, these numbers are effective at identifying potential RSF incidents before they start. The list covers virtually all destinations and it's automatically updated every 4 weeks to keep the database current.
Revenue Share Fraud is a lot more difficult to detect as the numbers in RSF usually are not part of the national numbering plans, this increases the difficulty of identifying the called numbers as premium rate services and monitoring hotlists.

Designed To Deliver Immediate Results

Revenue Share Fraud (RSF) causes significant revenue loss to telco businesses.
CSPs need to be a step ahead against these new-age attacks which are getting more sophisticated day by day.
Mobileum has designed a pro-active RSF solution utilizing Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to help you safeguard your revenue and resources against these frauds, by predicting and automatically adapting to the new fraud trends.

Machine Learning and Real-Time Blocking

At Mobileum we believe that the best approach against telecom fraud is the hybrid one: combining AI/ML models and rules. Rules can be very effective in mitigating fraud risk, and telecom fraud analysts are comfortable with this approach because they can utilize human intelligence and set common-sense parameters for the telecom business. However, not having the right rule in place can result in false positives, false negatives or even a fraudulent attack getting below the radar. Unlike rules, machine-learning models can account for changing fraudulent behaviors as they evolve over time. 
By leveraging our security and fraud management products – plus a good measure of expertise – Mobileum gives customers a way to manage threats in real-time; providing an added layer of protection, even in the most secure environments.

Bring your own ML Models (BYOM)

The evolution of sophisticated fraudulent techniques has increased the challenges of mitigating risk issues. CSPs are now actively employing data scientists, new tools, and advanced analytical models to quickly adapt to new methods to provide proactive risk coverage. These data scientists do not want to be solely dependent on vendors’ ML models and rather want to explore new ML models designed and developed in their own ecosystem.

Mobileum embraces this requirement and has now built a new openML engine based on microservice architecture, offering pluggable ML models with extensive support to all ML frameworks. This will enable the CSPs data scientists to plug and play their own developed machine learning models based on any external library or ML frameworks. Thus, offering Telecom organizations to be future proof, as they continue to develop new models to tackle unknown risk challenges using different tools and ML approaches.

Stop The Monetization Of IoT Devices for IRSF

International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF) is attractive to criminals because of the inherently low risk of the attack. It can be performed at a distance and the received money comes from re-directing the inter-carrier billing for expensive telecom traffic.
Since these frauds can be executed against the internet of things (IoT), the sheer number of devices that can be possibly involved has to be considered. When originated from IoT-critical infrastructures, and is consequently blocked as fraud, the IoT-enabled deployments would go silent.
Therefore, organizations that are using telecoms in operations should improve their security and fraud prevention posture to ensure the continuity of services, RAID allows CSPs to secure the new complex environments of IoT.

The New Combo Punch in Telco PBX & IRSF

PBX/IP PBX hacking and IRSF have become the new and preferred fraud combination used by fraudsters. Mobile operators upload lists of 'hot numbers' to block known fraudsters, nevertheless, the only way to fight attack combinations like this is with real-time defense using machine learning solutions to process vast data lakes of network and customer data.

RAID RSF protects the network in real-time with predictive analytics and machine learning, the network is protected from new vulnerabilities, protecting networks from fraud which can no longer rely on using rules/thresholds, when fraudsters are using AI to commit fraud and change their behavior in real-time.
