Over 50 Telcos Join the RAG Wangiri Blockchain
RAG, in partnership with Orillion, is offering free access to a global distributed ledger of numbers used in wangiri attacks to any business willing to freely share their intelligence. This partnership now includes more than 50 telcos. Another eight vendors have integrated the consortium’s anti-wangiri data with their products and services. 900 million phone subscribers are now protected by telcos belonging to the anti-wangiri consortium.
Blockchain technology makes the ledger uniquely quick and easy to access; there is no need to implement any new software or hardware. The solution is cryptographically secure and only responsible members of the telecoms community may obtain access. See the portal and request to join the consortium here.
