MCLEAN, Va. and LOWELL, Mass., November 12, 2020 - Numeracle Inc., the pioneer of Verified Identity™ for communications and NetNumber, an authorized USA STI Certification Authority (STI-CA) and leading provider of a comprehensive portfolio of STIR/SHAKEN solutions, today announced a joint partnership to deliver end-to-end call authentication to the enterprise. By averting illegal robocalls using spoofed IDs, this solution aims to increase the likelihood of calls answered, saving enterprise businesses time and money from missed connections while also improving the overall customer experience.
The joint Verified Caller Identity for the STIR/SHAKEN solution will be delivered through an extension of Numeracle's Verified Identity and Entity Identity Management™ platforms to include NetNumber's Guaranteed Caller™ Enterprise STIR/SHAKEN solution set. This solution enables legitimate enterprise calls to be displayed on the called party's device as verified through STIR/SHAKEN.
The front-end vetting and verification provided by Numeracle enables legitimate enterprise entities to enter the NetNumber Guaranteed Caller call authentication framework while simultaneously exposing bad actors who may fraudulently attempt to present their calls as being from those same entities.
Numeracle's Verified Identity is a compliance-based solution to protect the identities of legal enterprises within the communications ecosystem. Numeracle's Entity Identity Management platform is designed to verify the relationship between an entity's Verified Identity, its registered phone numbers, and its authorized vendor partners. Rich Call Data (RCD) is then assigned to calls from those phone numbers for certificate management and call signing via NetNumber's Guaranteed Caller Enterprise STIR/SHAKEN solution set.
NetNumber's Guaranteed Caller family of standards-compliant STIR/SHAKEN solutions, which cover both IP and TDM calls, is the most comprehensive in the industry. Guaranteed Caller extends the company's previous solutions to address all commonly known trusted-call scenarios, enabling legitimate callers to participate in the call authentication trust network while locking out fraudulent callers.
"One of the main issues today is that both consumers and the business community have lost trust in the effectiveness of existing caller ID solutions," said Matt Rosenberg, chief revenue officer at NetNumber. "Numeracle's Verified Identity provides a streamlined entry point for legal enterprise callers to access our Guaranteed Caller solution. We are excited to go to market with such an innovative partner as Numeracle and we look forward to delivering our joint solution to restore trust in communications between enterprise businesses and their customers."
"Elevating the enterprise caller to the point of entry into the call authentication framework has been a complicated challenge to solve, and one we've been building towards since the company's inception," said Rebekah Johnson, Founder and CEO Numeracle. "Through this partnership with NetNumber, Numeracle continues to pave the way in protecting enterprise communications, giving control back to the enterprise to fulfill the emerging requirements of STIR/SHAKEN through this end-to-end, joint solution."
