- The Spanish mobile industry will launch online anti-fraud and identity services through the GSMA OPEN GATEWAY initiative

Orange, Telefónica and Vodafone will open their mobile networks to developers around the world, allowing the creation of more secure digital services

MADRID, February 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The main Spanish mobile operators, Orange, Telefónica and Vodafone, today announced the launch of two new services designed to help developers combat online fraud and protect the digital identities of mobile clients.

As part of the global GSMA Open Gateway initiative, operators have announced the launch of two API (Application Programmable Interface) network services focused on improving digital security: Number Verification and SIM Swap. These APIs will enable developer and partner teams to create new intelligent layers of customer authentication, verification and security within mobile networks. This will help businesses, such as financial institutions and online retailers, address identity fraud by improving user authentication and improving security.

These new services will be available at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Barcelona, ​​Spain, from February 26 to 29.

The latest figures from Spain's Interior Minister show that reported cases of cybercrime increased by 72% in 2022 compared to 2019, and almost 90% of them were related to online fraud. Cybercrime currently accounts for around a fifth of all recorded crimes in the country.

Launched a year ago at MWC Barcelona, ​​the GSMA Open Gateway initiative represents a paradigm shift in the way the global telecommunications industry designs and brings to market new mobile applications and digital and immersive services. The new Number Verification and SIM Change services will also make online authentication simpler and faster for online customers, as mobile applications, cloud services and connectivity networks will be accessible through the APIs.

GSMA Open Gateway is a common, open framework between operators to make it easier for developers and cloud providers to build more secure applications and services that communicate seamlessly with each other. This is done through unique, programmable access points to mobile networks known as APIs. From Argentina to China, from the US to Australia, 42 mobile operator groups around the world, representing 237 mobile networks and 65% of global connections, are already part of the initiative.
