TeleSign, a communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS) company, has launched self-service capabilities that enable app developers to access TeleSign application programming interfaces (APIs) and add communications and security into their web and mobile applications in minutes.
TeleSign's self-service capabilities let developers create accounts, get API credentials along with $5 in free credits, and use their credit cards to purchase services. Self-service allows developers to test TeleSign products for free, get up and running in minutes, and purchase ongoing transactions. Developers can test and deploy with no contract commitments or minimum transaction thresholds.
The new portal offers easy access to many of TeleSign's APIs, including the following:
- TeleSign Messaging API, which allows developers to add real-time communications as SMS-based alerts, reminders, notifications, invites, two-way communication, OTPs, and other automated messages to Web and mobile applications.
- TeleSign Voice API, which allows developers to add real-time communications as voice-based alerts, reminders, notifications, OTPs, and other automated messages to Web and mobile applications.
- TeleSign Score API, a fraud risk assessment API that delivers reputation scoring based on a variety of data points, including phone number intelligence, traffic patterns, machine learning, and a global data consortium.
- TeleSign PhoneID API, which provides a variety of features, including cleansed phone number, phone type, and telecom carrier information that can be used to determine which phone numbers are potential fraud risks and the best communication method for phone numbers (voice, SMS).
- Auto Verify SDK, a software development kit to provide user verification into existing Android applications.
"Since our founding in 2005, TeleSign's communications platform has handled business-critical traffic for 20 of the 25 largest brands in the world," said Aled Miles, CEO of TeleSign, in a statement. "With the introduction of self-service, we are excited to open up our platform to all developers as we continue to change the way businesses communicate with their customers."
