BENEFITS OF INVIGO TO REGULATORS & GOVERNMENT
Devices can be stolen, cloned, imported illegally and can be a focus for fraud and criminality of all types and sizes. These ‘supercomputers in our pockets’ are now a concern in many nations because they help in the organisation of many malevolent acts. Solutions to these urgent problems need to be designed and implemented on a cross-operator national, pan-national and global basis.
These criminals endanger the legitimate activities of every mobile device user. More directly for governments and regulators, these illegal devices reduce the tax take, which has a much wider impact on the delivery of public services.
Why do problems occur?
Criminal gangs are getting better at incorporating sophisticated mobile devices in their activities. They are employing skilled hackers to breach corporate security and are exposing weaknesses in our modern way of living, now so dependent on information technology.
Meanwhile, governments and regulators are struggling to keep pace with the growth in mobile device related crime. Device fraud includes the illegal importation of devices, theft and most importantly, the use of devices with duplicated ('cloned') IMEI numbers in criminal activity. Devices with cloned IMEIs make it difficult for law enforcement agencies to identify the user of the illegal or unauthorised phone.
The ability of governments to track and stop criminals using mobile devices in their activities is limited by their out of date technology.
How can Invigo help?
We give regulators and governments the capabilities to exclude illegal and unauthorised devices from operator networks. This can reduce fraud and mitigate many forms of criminality. It starts with the SIM card, and at Invigo, we offer solutions that ensures that only fully legitimate and registered SIM cards can operate on our customers’ networks.
Public administrators can deploy across network solutions that tackle criminality at source and remove an incredibly important tool from the armoury at the disposal of criminals. It puts governments and regulators back in control and helps them play their part in improving the lot of every honest members of society.
Our solution is the first of its kind to prevent the use of fraudulent devices on the network, including devices with duplicate IMEIs. We enable governments to increase tax income from device imports and assist law enforcement agencies in the tracking of user mobile device activity.
