WirelessDevNet.com Press Release
Syniverse today announced a new multi-year agreement with Tencent – one of China’s largest and most widely used integrated Internet portals with messaging, entertainment, lifestyle and shopping apps and games – to authenticate global end users of Tencent’s WeChat app via Syniverse’s Enterprise Messaging Service. Recognized as one of the most downloaded mobile communication apps in the world, WeChat has more than 100 million registered users outside of China.
When an end user registers with the WeChat app over his or her mobile phone, Syniverse’s highly reliable platform will deliver a one-time verification code via SMS. The one-time code will be delivered directly to the end user with low processing latency, subsequently allowing the user to complete the registration and activate the app.
“WeChat users hold the security of their private information and their convenience in the highest regard, and Syniverse’s solution ensures both by providing a channel to safely and quickly verify identity during the registration process,” said Morten Brøgger, Chief Sales Officer, Syniverse. “Our service will initiate the first of many pleasant experiences that users will have with WeChat.”
The agreement with Tencent comes on the heels of a recent announcement of another leading mobile communication and entertainment platform using Syniverse’s Enterprise Messaging Service to authenticate its subscribers.
Versatile in scope, the Enterprise Messaging Service can also be easily integrated with email systems, allowing brands to send and receive relevant and contextual SMS messages from their email clients, with group messaging support and delivery tracking through a secure channel.
The service also can be offered by mobile service providers to sell network-based application-to-person services directly to customers, with Syniverse managing the platform on the back end. Enterprises’ back-end systems can be triggered to automatically send high-priority SMS notifications to select groups of customers and employees, offering the scalability to be deployed for a number of different business uses with a wide variety of messaging capabilities.
“Our platforms are designed to be extremely flexible to meet the needs of any business for messaging reach to the world’s mobile consumers,” Brøgger said. “From one-time password authentication to travel alerts to bank notifications and more, the potential use cases are virtually limitless.”
