EFFORT OF THE POCONOS, Pa. - Aug. 17, 2015 - PRLog -- The telecom industry analyst firm TRI forecasts the global market for telecom fraud management solutions – including software, service bureau, databases, test call generation equipment, and managed services – will reach about $600 million in calendar year 2015.

About two thirds of the solutions market, TRI estimates, is in the Credit/ID and Subscription Application Fraud sector where the business is dominated by global credit and fraud service bureaus.

Second in market size are solutions that monitor and block IRSF, premium rate, and related toll frauds, such as Wangiri.  And third is the growing problem of bypass fraud, particularly SIM box bypass.

The report, which includes contributions and commentary by 14 industry experts, is written for two groups: people at solution vendor and telecom operator firms.   On the solution vendor side, the report contains rich market trending and competitive intelligence.  For people at telecom or virtual comms providers, the report provides intelligence to help fraud management teams get up to speed on the latest solutions and strategies to combat fraud.

Here are key findings in the report:

IRSF and Premium Rate Fraud

International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF) and Premium Rate frauds
are getting plenty of attention these days -- that's very welcome news.. The net effect, TRI predicts, is that the financial damage caused by IRSF fraud will decline.

Bypass Fraud

Fraudsters have stepped up their game in Bypass Fraud, especially via the SIM Box.  One technology making this possible is the SIM Server, which allows a fraudster to rotate thousands of SIM cards across multiple target countries.

Credit/ID & Subscription Application Fraud

This refers to the fraudulent ordering of telecom services intent of stealing equipment or never paying for services rendered.  The easy accessibility of digital devices for banking and e-commerce uses has made better fraud detection in this area critical.  Several innovative solutions have either arrived or are under development.

Other Anti-Fraud Solutions

Other fraud solution categories have a relatively small market share today, but may loom large in the years ahead.  In this solutions category are: Insider, Sales & Dealer Fraud Solutions, Anti-Fraud Solutions for Mobile Money and Payments, False Answer Supervision, andConsumer Abuse of Mobile Data Plans.
