Digi is the first mobile service provider in Malaysia to partner with Boku to launch mobile identity products that proactively protect its customers from numerous cyberthreats. There is a growing demand for mobile identity authentication services in Malaysia as more companies continue to realize the necessity of advanced multi-factor authentication solutions in the wake of increased incidences of digital fraud.

Digital service providers and their users are increasingly being targeted by fraudsters who seek to extract money or other forms of stored value from accounts. Boku and Digi are ensuring that Malaysians are protected from these forms of fraud.
