AGG Software provides plug-in for 66 leading telecom vendors
Ramat HaSharon, Israel - October 13, 2011 - Humbug Telecom Labs, provider of carrier -class fraud prevention, detection and telecom analytics for any size business, today announced its compatibility with 220+ PBX models from 66 of the leading vendors. AGG Software has partnered with Humbug to provide a PBX plug -in that enables companies to connect their existing PBXs to the analytic and fraud tools provided by Humbug Labs. According to the Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA), telecom fraud, as a result of hacking and PBX hijacking, costs businesses over $80 billion each year.
"Telecom hacking has become an everyday occurrence and PBX systems that are left unprotected become easy targets," says Art Gerasimov, CEO of AGG Software. "It's akin to leaving your car keys in the ignition. Eventually, the wrong person is going to notice."
"The AGG Software plug -in provides a remarkably easy and effective way to add our fraud protection for more than 90% of the PBX users worldwide," said Yaniv Rofé, CEO of Humbug Telecom Labs. "Now even small businesses can get carrier grade fraud protection and free telecom analytics so they can focus on their business and not worry about losing tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to telecom fraud."
The following vendors are now protected:

PBX IN A FLASH
Any PBX not currently supported can use the Humbug API which enables users to connect any application/softswitch or PBX to the Humbug service for in -depth reporting and alerting. The API sends CDR data and various PBX events for analysis; end -users proactively configure alerts, and add or remove API keys. To get started, sign -up for a Humbug account and create your first API key.
Humbug's chief architect, Nir Simionovich, is a key speaker this year at AstriCon, presenting "VoIP Fraud Case Studies of 2010 -2011" on Wednesday, October 26th at 11:00am.
