TollShield (software)

Real-time toll fraud mitigation for Networks and Carriers 

In the telco industry, 'toll fraud' is one of the most common (yet little-known) problems. This fraud typically occurs when a network or carrier is hacked, and high volumes of international calls are made illegally. TollShield is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform which helps detect and block fraud in real time. It can save telcos many thousands of dollars per annum

TollShield was designed and developed in-house by the MNF Group, and launched globally in 2015. The patent fraud mitigation technology is licensed to global carriers and networks by Symbio Networks and TNZI. TollShield has been ranked among Australia's top 100 innovations of 2015 (Anthill SMART 100).
