BlockAPT partners with Jersey Telecom (JT) to prevent SIM SWAP fraud


BlockAPT (member of the Government-backed LORCA Cyber Accelerator) announces a major accomplishment in partnering with JT (Jersey Telecom) the largest telecoms provider in the Channel Islands, with global operations spanning across 7 countries. JT has successfully built up its Fraud Protection services working with global Mobile Network Operators to provide live network and device checks. These services run alongside JT’s Internet of Things (IoT) business which provides cellular connectivity and remote management of devices worldwide, as well as bulk messaging services, with JT powering over 10 million SIMs globally.

BlockAPT’s platform connects to JT's existing Mobile Fraud Protection Services and enhances its security infrastructure by providing one central security management platform. It integrates seamlessly into JT's fraud prevention engine and supports their business security processes adding a high layer of defence against fraud, information theft, denial of service and infiltration. The BlockAPT platform’s automated and continuous vulnerability assessment functionality has been put in place to detect and alert on critical flaws allowing for proactive incident response handling as soon as high-risk vulnerabilities are detected.

Marco Essomba, Founder & CTO of BlockAPT said: “Over the last 5 years we have seen SIM SWAP fraud generally rocket by over 400%. We are delighted and proud to work in partnership with JT using our unique Monitor, Manage, Automate and Respond (MMAR) framework with a defence-in-depth technical approach. We continue to provide added value to JT and its customers by blocking fraudsters from persistent and future attacks”.

Barna Kutvolgyi, Managing Director, JT International said: ‘’Smartphones have evolved from being a convenience to an essential part of everyday life. And each of these phones provides an access point into the sensitive areas of a person's life causing SIM swapping to soar. At JT we believe Mobile network providers must play their part to help mitigate the risks of SIM Swap. By working with BlockAPT, we’ve strengthened our existing portfolio of services, enabling us to provide next-generation fraud protection services and the highest level of mobile security for our customers, delivering a complete, reliable and fully managed solution”.
