Global wholesale carrier, BICS, Thursday unveiled a new addition to its fraud protection solution, FraudGuard, by extending the crowdsourcing platform to incorporate protection against roaming fraud for its MNO Partners. The company has incorporated Roaming NRTRDE into FraudGuard's cloud-based platform to provide a cost-effective, complete and seamless way for operators to protect themselves proactively and in real-time against the most sophisticated telecom fraud threats.

According to BICS, roaming fraud is a growing problem that costs the industry over six billion dollars (USD) per year worldwide and can be responsible for huge revenue losses to telecoms operators anywhere in the world. BICS claims that FraudGuard can identify over 100 new threats to carriers daily and has already saved operators millions of dollars in revenues, blocking over 500 million fraudulent call attempts across 800 telcos within the first two years of operation.
