Businesses authorized to leverage number porting information

With the introduction of PortData Validate from iconectiv, financial institutions, healthcare providers and other authorized businesses can leverage telephone number porting data as part of their assessment when verifying a customer´s identity, approving a transaction or disclosing information, the company said.

The data, exclusively available from iconectiv or an authorized reseller of iconectiv´s PortData Validate service, is the nation´s only authorized service for businesses who need access to accurate and up-to-date phone number porting information for fraud mitigation and risk assessment.

PortData Validate will provide information that businesses can use to assess risk before confirming a transaction by identifying the current service provider associated with a telephone number and recent porting activity. Additionally, contact centers can leverage PortData Validate to mitigate the risk of identity theft and other fraudulent activity and, if needed, take additional steps to validate a caller´s identity.
