Tech Stocks; Elephant Talk (OTCBB:ETAK) and Its ValidSoft Subsidiary Featured in Josh Levine's MicroCap Investor Newsletter Companies Positioned to Profit From "Securing the Mobile Cloud"

SCHIPHOL, THE NETHERLANDS - April 20, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire/ Tech Stock News) - Elephant Talk Communications Inc. (OTCBB:ETAK) (http://www.elephanttalk.com) has announced that the company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, ValidSoft Limited, (www.validsoft.com) were featured recently by Josh Levine in his MicroCap Investor newsletter. The report is available at: http://levinesmicrocapinvestor.com/news/2011/04-14-11.aspx
In this latest update on ETAK by Levine, he described Elephant Talk's business model as "Securing the Mobile Cloud." Levine noted that Elephant Talk intends to manage the mobile cloud, or mobile Internet, to provide access to mobile networks for businesses around the global that are non-telecom, non-tech companies but have huge customer databases. Such companies do not want to invest in IT and telecom infrastructure such as antennas and spectrum, but will look to companies such as Elephant Talk to reach their customers and stakeholders, Levine said.
Elephant Talk aims to become "Mobile Central" in the market for mobile cloud services, which includes hundreds of thousands of companies worldwide, Levine added. He also cited experienced management at Elephant Talk by CEO Steven van der Velden and at ValidSoft by CEO Patrick Carroll.
Levine noted that ValidSoft has advanced its business through this arrangement with Visa Europe and other financial institutions for the provision of its fraud-prevention solutions. Levine pointed out that Visa Europe and its 4,000 member banks handle 28 billion transactions a year.
ValidSoft's suite of advanced telecom-based solutions enables banks and other financial institutions to secure all transaction channels, is relatively inexpensive to implement, and is invisible to the customer while maintaining customer privacy, Levine said. ValidSoft has been awarded the European Privacy Seal, he noted.
ValidSoft uses the proximity of a customer's mobile phone to the location where their payment card is being used. If the phone and the card are not in proximity, then it is likely that the transaction is fraudulent, Levine said.
In pilot programs in the U.K. and Australia , ValidSoft's technology has demonstrated that it reduces transaction false positives from an industry average of 90% to virtually none, Levine said.
Levine also pointed out the significance of Elephant Talk and ValidSoft's strategy of positioning their services in the mobile cloud. As mobile phones are adopted by larger populations, especially where many "unbanked" communities rely on such a device for the transfer and receipt of funds, the mobile or smart phone will rapidly become the dominant form of electronic payment. Levine added that ValidSoft's technology also can provide security to a wide range of transactions in the mobile cloud beyond financial services to include health monitoring, among others.
