Proactive Action Against Fraud

Power of Number Porting Data When Assessing Risk

Identity theft is at an all-time high. More than $16.8B was stolen in 2017 alone. Technology makes it easier and faster. Accounts can be opened and closed quicker, bank accounts can be drained faster, and healthcare information can be obtained through virtual identification.

Today, businesses rely on the phone number as THE personal identifier to help protect consumers, assess risk and mitigate fraud.  With more than 600K porting transactions daily in the U.S. alone, PortData Validate is the simple, seamless and secure way to make sure that businesses are not counting on old phone number data to make new determinations on whether or not to approve a transaction or release information.

In the United States, PortData Validate is the only authorized data source for accurate and up-to-date phone number porting information for fraud mitigation and risk assessment.
