Cyber Security Partners launches cyber threat detection and prevention platform, Zero
UK-based Cyber Security Partners (CSP) has launched a new real-time, data-driven, cyber threat detection platform, Zero.
CSP says Zero offers companies (including banks and other financial institutions) protection from the threats of email phishing and malware.
Stuart Robb, CEO and founder of Cyber Security Partners, says: “While much of the focus on phishing prevention is aimed at consumer education, we firmly believe that the onus must be on businesses to prevent phishing attacks on their customers. With the technology now available in the war on hackers and fraudsters, telling consumers not to click on an email is as ineffective weapon as throwing a stone at a tank.”
Alongside the prevention of phishing attacks at source, Zero provides users with the information necessary to trace, pinpoint and “neutralise” cyber criminals that threaten their business, regardless of their global location.
Robb says Zero can “almost entirely” eliminate the possibility of fraudsters imitating a company via email, and so “putting customer trust and loyalty at risk”.
He adds that Zero requires no “complex” integration with existing IT systems and “perhaps most importantly, no engagement from consumers”.
How it works
The platform works by analysing millions of emails sent to and from the major ISPs around the globe, identifying phishing attacks in real-time, “before they can cause any damage”. Once an illegitimate email has been identified, Zero uses the DMARC standard to quarantine the message, preventing fraudulent emails from reaching the recipient’s inbox. Its forensic platform then displays the information required to interrogate mail sources, gather evidence, and take immediate follow up action.
The company says forensic reports enable users to view scam emails and fake sites as they would appear to customers, allowing them to take the necessary action. By providing an understanding of the data that hackers are trying to harvest, Zero also equips companies with the information needed to implement additional security measures.
