Fraudsters are on the attack, targeting more than 400 brands each quarter and posing a threat to virtually any enterprise with a recognized brand and customer base. Because identity theft remains lucrative, attacks are increasing in both number and sophistication. And because more and more of these incidents represent concerted attacks on brands, revenue and reputation are affected as well.

The impact on enterprises goes well beyond network security, including brand erosion, decrease in online channel adoption, financial loss and even higher call center costs.

Fortunately, MarkMonitor AntiFraud puts these fraudsters on the defensive by proactively and comprehensively pre-empting many attacks and rapidly responding to those that do get underway.

MarkMonitor AntiFraud includes anti-phishing and anti-malware components; customers may use either component, or both, depending on their needs. These solutions begin with the Early Warning System, which monitors domain registrations and sounds the alert when suspicious names surface. Security teams use the largest Reverse WhoIs database in existence to uncover other illicit activity initiated by known or suspected fraudsters.

Phish and malware attacks are identified quickly, thanks to the largest array of intelligence feeds in the industry — leading ISPs, email providers, industry groups and partners, and honey-pots — coupled with powerful search and research capabilities. When an attack or site is identified, MarkMonitor AntiFraud rolls into action.

The industry’s fastest anti-fraud response. MarkMonitor analysts leverage relationships with ISPs, domain registrars, and hosting providers to have phishing sites shut down fast — up to 50% faster than with other solutions. When appropriate, MarkMonitor injects active phish sites with properly-formatted — but fake — credentials, rendering them virtually harmless. Malware attacks are monitored first, enabling forensics and credential recovery, and then shut down.

In virtually every case, the Industry’s broadest fraudcasting network goes to work: allied email providers, ISPs, browsers and security vendors block access to known phish and malware attack sites, preventing hundreds of millions of Internet users from accessing them. Malware samples are distributed rapidly to anti-virus vendors to mitigate attacks.

Home of anti-fraud experts. MarkMonitor maintains its own 24x7 Security Operations Center, staffed with fraud experts who are there to help when issues arise anywhere in the world — and who can free your team to pursue other important work.

Together with their other prevention-focused, rapid response capabilities, MarkMonitor AntiFraud offers the most comprehensive protection against phishing and malware attacks available anywhere.
