MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Easy Solutions, the Total Fraud Protection company and a Cyxtera Business, today introduced Early Phishing Detection as part of its Detect Safe Browsing® framework. Early Phishing Detection leverages the Company’s propriety machine learning-based, URL classification technology that increases the number and speed at which phishing attacks are detected. As the malicious nature of a URL is confirmed, mitigation starts immediately, protecting 100 percent of the end-user population in a reduced timeframe.
Detect Safe Browsing Client is a Software-as-a-Service solution that provides a client agent that is installed on desktops to detect and prevent financial malware and phishing attacks. Detect Safe Browsing Client allows for endpoint visibility and improved defense against account takeover (ATO). According to The Forrester Wave™: Risk-Based Authentication, Q3 2017, “Forrester estimates that ATO causes at least $6.5 billion to $7 billion in annual losses” across multiple verticals.
“Today’s most nefarious attacks still cling to email as a primary distribution vehicle for initial stage malware because it’s such a successful attack vector,” said David Castañeda, VP of Product Development for Easy Solutions. “Phishing campaigns thrive in targeted attacks, and phishing attacks are most effective in the first few minutes of their existence, making it crucial for organizations to identify potential phishing sites as quickly as possible.”
Easy Solutions’ predictive URL classification models are trained to identify the key features of domain names with the goal of rapidly analyzing their risk potential. Detect Safe Browsing Client leverages this technology to identify malicious URLs accessed by the end-users. Risky URLs are then analyzed by the Company’s 24/7 Security Operations Center to determine whether they redirect to phishing sites.
Easy Solutions also provides automated mitigation, which includes automatic site takedown requests, URL submissions to safe browsing providers, and real-time blacklisting of the URLs on customer endpoints. This makes Early Phishing Detection even more powerful as it enables all of the bank’s customers to be protected from a phishing site within minutes of a single customer discovering it.
“With this technology embedded into our Detect Safe Browsing solution, we have seen immediate results in our capacity to prevent phishing attacks and diminish their lifespan, ultimately protecting our clients even more effectively,” continued Castañeda.
