WASPA calls in the “big guns” to fight fraud in South Africa

WASPA has secured the services of French anti-fraud firm Evina in a bid to fight fraud in the South African mobile industry.

According to WASPA, fraudulent attacks on local mobile network operators and systems have become a big problem.

“Specialist tactics are required to combat fast-moving, guerrilla-style hacking attempts,” said WASPA general manager Ilonka Badenhorst.

WASPA chose Evina after a tender process which involved the submission of proposals by six firms.

“Our experts have a long history of on-the-ground experience in beating mobile fraudsters,” said Evina CEO David Lotfi.

“From fraudulent app installs to click cons, our artificial intelligence-based protection kit blocks fraudulent mobile transactions while continuously adding to our corporate anti-fraud IP.”

Badenhorst added that the partnership will allow WASPA to take its “commitment to the SA mobile consumer to a whole new level.”
