Telco security

With the rise of SMS verification and 2FA, telecoms networks have taken on an identity management role they never expected. And these methods have now been revealed as inadequate: breaches lead to unauthorised access of communication channels, and abuse of the system.

At the same time, telcos have to manage daily consumer access, communication with customer services, secure delivery of high-value phones, and monthly charges to a globally growing audience. Things can’t go on as they are.

Nuggets can transform the business of telcos, with a form of verified identity that enables access, control, payment and a new standard of verified communication.
