Webroot and RSA Team Up to Deliver Real-Time Phishing Detection

Webroot Adds Machine Learning, Content Classification and Active Learning Solutions to RSA FraudActionSM Anti-Phishing Services

Broomfield, CO – July 23, 2013

Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, announced a technology partnership with RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), to provide additional real-time phishing detection to RSA FraudActionSM Anti-Phishing Service. The combination of Webroot’s Real-Time Anti-Phishing Service with RSA’s industry-leading phishing solutions are engineered to allow enhanced analysis of suspected phishing sites and faster detection of attacks while helping to reduce false positives and delivering even more accurate results to customers.

Phishing is the most prevalent Web-borne attack, affecting 55% of companies, according to a recent Webroot Web security study and 2012 saw an increase of 59% in phishing attacks according to RSA’s Online Fraud Report. By processing billions of URLs on a monthly basis, Webroot routinely discovers phishing sites ahead of other popular anti-phishing technologies and sources. This timing is critical given how quickly these criminal sites are taken down after they have been launched in order to avoid detection.

"Combining Webroot's capabilities with RSA's automated phishing detection helps us more rapidly qualify suspected phishing sites and quickly determine which URL requires further investigation," said Avi Rosen, Director of Anti-Fraud Solutions at RSA. "Having additional real-time capabilities helps us to reduce the lifecycle of phishing attacks while helping to ensure our customers are receiving the most efficient and effective anti-phishing service available.".

The Real-Time Anti-Phishing Service from Webroot is based on advanced machine learning capabilities, which collects and processes hundreds of attributes of a web site in real-time in order to determine its threat profile. The cloud-based "big data" solution is also extremely scalable to handle increased workloads and has the added benefit of getting "smarter" and more accurate as more and more data is processed through the system.

"Teaming up with an industry leader like RSA demonstrates the value of our URL classification and reputation solutions to helping solve today's challenging phishing attacks," said Jeff Santelices, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Field Operations at Webroot. "We provide an innovative cloud-based machine learning solution that automates what has traditionally been a manual process, ensuring that it takes mere seconds, instead of hours or days, to detect phishing attacks."
