San Jose, CA – August 29, 2012 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, announced today the immediate availability of the latest release of the ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Defender Platform. The updated version is the only online fraud prevention solution on the market that provides virtual private network (VPN) and phishing detection with advanced device identification and malware protection to combat cybercriminals. Supporting a customer’s layered security approach, the platform provides advanced protection against account takeover attacks, fraudulent payments and spoofed identities to ensure secure, frictionless online transactions.
Unmask Cybercriminals Using VPN Detection
“Cybercriminals continue to use increasingly sophisticated methods to conceal their true IP addresses,” said Avivah Litan, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Research. “The latest technique they are using to cover their tracks is hiding behind VPN servers. Without proper VPN detection, businesses are at high risk for revealing sensitive information to outside, fraudulent parties.”
Protecting Organisations from Identity Theft and Account Takeover with Phishing Detection
Phishing attacks attempt to direct customers to fake, malicious websites where users unwittingly enter their username and password. These fake websites then send users to the actual site so they do not suspect a phishing scam.
Device Identification and Malware Detection Combine for Powerful Account Takeover Protection
