Nimbuzz Chooses Syniverse for User Authentication in Multi-Year Agreement

Syniverse today announced a multi-year agreement with Nimbuzz to enable authentication of Nimbuzz users via Syniverse’s Enterprise Messaging Service.

Syniverse services span more than 1,500 mobile service providers, enterprises, ISPs and app providers in nearly 200 countries and territories.

Users would enter their phone number to receive a one-time authentication password by text message. This confirmation text, which utilizes Syniverse’s platform to maintain low processing latency, will then allow the user to complete installation and activate Nimbuzz Messenger on their device, which is similar to what will occur when a Nimbuzz user forgets his or her username or password.

“Syniverse’s global reach and high-level service approach makes for the perfect fit to support our messaging needs,” said Joby Babu, Chief Operating Officer, Nimbuzz. “We are very pleased with the way the solution seamlessly integrates into our existing systems, which greatly benefits our end users.”

“With a customer base across a wide variety of mobile service providers, Nimbuzz required a single solution to provide ubiquitous reach, and that’s exactly what the Syniverse Enterprise Messaging Service enables,” said Morten Brogger, Chief Sales Officer, Syniverse.

With more than 150 million users in 200 countries and more than 210,000 new registrations per day, Nimbuzz is one of the most popular communications applications for any device. The app span a multitude of operating systems, including Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows Phone, Windows PCs, and Macs. Find out more about and download Nimbuzz on our official Nimbuzz page.
