i-fraudlab is Intrinsic Systems’ next generation fraud management system for fixed, mobile, IP and converging network services. To support the use of big data in fraud management, the system has been expanded to include the highly scalable Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) database technology from Greenplum into the solution stack.
Every Telecommunications Network Operator and Service Provider is faced with the growing threat of leaking revenue through Network Fraud or Irregular Network Access. It is currently estimated that between 1% and 3% of annual revenues are lost due to these sophisticated and well organized attacks and that even higher levels of financial damage can be caused if the problem is not detected and managed early.
i-fraudlab provides the operator with a powerful toolset to combat well-established, fraudulent profiles as well as next-generation fraud attacks which are either present now or imminent. The profile of the fraudster is rapidly changing, hence the need to install a new services platform using well-defined, IP-based technology. The sector-wide move to IP does, however, increase the likelihood of attacks to a much wider group of intellectual people.
“Greenplum offers industry-leading performance at a low cost for companies managing terabytes to petabytes of data.”
Darren Thoirs, Managing Director, Intrinsic Systems
