Dallas, Texas–(Newsfile Corp. – Aug. 26, 2022) – Forward Edge AI has announced the development of a new version of its Gabriel app that integrates blockchain technology to improve collective cybersecurity.

Gabriel is an application that has the ability to detect, block and report SMiShing attacks in 25 languages. Gabriel essentially leverages collective cybersecurity using machine learning and artificial intelligence. When users who download Gabriel receive a spam call, it can be immediately recognized and blocked. Gabriel works by leveraging machine learning and natural language processing to recognize and create voice tags related to unwanted calls. Therefore, if the same caller calls from a different number and unwanted callers have multiple numbers, these calls are also automatically blocked. Despite the thousands of numbers a spam caller may have, they won’t be able to get through once the dangerous actor is blocked by Gabriel, due to the effectiveness of the voiceprint signature feature.

The new version of Gabriel launched by Forward Edge AI integrates the Universal Communication Identifier (UCID) service. UCID is basically connecting a user’s unique identification number (e.g. MEID) to any number of smart devices via blockchain technology. This further enhances network and product security. The main benefit is that instead of spam number details being stored in a single repository that would be specific to a single network provider, the relevant data would be decentralized and recorded on the UCID blockchain in the form of an NFT. This means that it would be less vulnerable to data breaches. It would also provide the benefits of greater portability between devices and networks. With UCID, it is now possible for users to seamlessly transfer security information to other smart devices they own and to others on their network. This is possible even when they move from one network to another, because their security information is no longer limited to a single device or service provider.

Commenting on the benefits UCID brings to the new version of the app, Kevin .L. Jackson, SVP of Total Network Services (TNS) said, “Smartphones were around just 40 years ago, but the speed at which they have evolved is simply amazing. Cybersecurity has become increasingly important as we use our smartphones for shopping, banking, web browsing, gaming, texting, and many other activities that involve sharing our personal and financial information. The new version of Gabriel takes collective cybersecurity to the next level.”
