Lumos Networks licenses Equinox fraud protection

A networking company with nearly 6,000 miles of fiber in the Mid-Atlantic has chosen a local company’s fraud protection product to monitor its entire routing system for malfeasance. Lumos Networks, which is headquartered in Waynesboro, Va., has licensed — for unpublished sums — the Protector fraud management system provided by Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems.

“Because of fraud’s direct effect on revenue, fraud management is an essential component of a service provider’s business strategy,” said David Ledbetter, national sales director for Equinox Information Systems in a company statement. “Protector notifies Lumos Networks when communications fraud is occurring on their network. This real-time alert allows costly fraud to be stopped quickly to help Lumos protect their network as well as their customers.”

FCA Venture leads Georgia venture’s Series A

Clayton Associates’ FCA Venture Partners has placed $1.5 million with Catavolt Inc., an Atlanta-based mobile application software development company. Also in on the deal was angel investor and Clayton advisory board member George Salem, according to a statement.

Catavolt’s creation, dubbed Catavolt Extender, is a “hybrid cloud service” package that connects a client company’s enterprise data — large-scale blocks of information — to specified mobile phones in real time. To put it in the company's words: “The idea is to deliver mobile phone applications without the expensive need to develop proprietary software to process information on the client end. Catavolt's unique approach, based on its patent-pending Dual Model Architecture, enables organizations to rapidly create and deliver mobile applications to business users without the need for costly and traditionally resource-intensive software development projects.”

Mobile application software development has of late captured the interest of local investors. We reported just this week on the launching of Streamweaver, a split-screen mobile video application company initially funded by two TNInvestco participants, Mountain Group Capital’s Limestone Fund and the Tennessee Communities Venture Fund. Funding levels weren’t specified for either fund.
