October 28, 2020

Westford, MA Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global provider of real time communications software and network solutions to service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure sectors, today announced that its comprehensive Call Trust solution has been recognized as User Behavior Analytics Platform of the Year in the 2020 Cybersecurity Awards.

”While our phones have never had as compelling a presence in our lives as they do today, we no longer trust phone calls due to the proliferation of nuisance and fraud calls. Unfortunately, this also means that we miss valuable calls in an attempt to avoid the bad ones,” said Tony Scarfo, Ribbon’s EVP and General Manager, Cloud and Edge Business Unit. “We developed Call Trust to mitigate this situation and empower service providers with a solution that is intended to restore trust for their end users. We’re thrilled to have won this award and want to congratulate all of the winners.”

Ribbon’s breakthrough Call Trust identity assurance portfolio is a comprehensive solution designed to validate a caller’s identity, intent, and reputation. Call Trust examines each call in real-time to ensure it is neither fraudulent, spoofed or originating from robocallers. The end-to-end solution raises identity assurance to new levels by leveraging existing STIR/SHAKEN and robocall mitigation procedures, coupled with the latest in behavioral modeling and machine learning techniques to produce advanced reputation scoring and call validation treatment for every call.

The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program is devoted to honoring excellence in information security and cybersecurity technology companies, products and people. It provides a platform for public recognition around the achievements of breakthrough information security companies and products in categories including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Web and Email Security, UTM, Firewall and more.
