Phishing and spear phishing are now targeted at businesses of all sizes and are rapidly becoming the preferred way cybercriminals breach networks. In fact, phishing attacks are now so sophisticated they often fool even IT Security professionals. However, the real danger is now the speed at which phishing attacks are launched. With the average phishing site being live for fewer than 12 hours (and often less), static blacklists are ineffective against the ultra-dynamic nature of today’s attacks, and real-time solutions must be implemented to combat this growing threat.
The Webroot Real-Time Anti-Phishing Service enables partners to provide significantly better protection against today’s phishing threats. Backed by the most advanced machine learning technology in the industry and the cloud-based Webroot Intelligence Network, the service provides real-time validation of URLs at the time of access for truly effective protection against zero-hour attacks, disguised redirection, and recently hijacked websites.
The service leverages Webroot’s advanced machine learning and content classification to automate the detection of phishing sites. In extensive testing, this new approach detects phishing sites three to five days ahead of the competition – a major breakthrough in the defense against phishing attacks. These sites are typically live for only a few hours to avoid detection by other anti-phishing technologies, so early detection is critical.
Now vendors of anti-fraud services, email security, email infrastructure, social media, SMS, web browsers, endpoint security, DNS, perimeter security appliances, search engines, mobile carriers, mobile apps, and others can better protect their customers against one of the most sophisticated threats facing consumers and businesses today.
