Automatic redirect from phishing site links

First Cyber Security : 22 September, 2009  (New Product)
SOLID Authentication service provides additional protection from phishing through web redirects
First Cyber Security announces the extension of their SOLID Authentication service which will now automatically redirect links selected from phishing emails, from the fraudulent site to the authentic site.

According to APACS, the UK Payments Administration Ltd, 18% of people who receive phishing emails still click through to links provided in these emails which have the intention of fooling them into divulging personal data or into downloading malware to their computers.

"It is difficult for email recipients to be on their guard at all times, in the last few days there has been another round of phishing emails promising rebates from HMRC," said Rod Pugh, MD First Cyber Security. "This service will ensure that should customers of banks and other organisations like HMRC that subscribe to our service, inadvertently select a link from such an email, their browser will be automatically redirected safely to the banks/organisations authentic site, preventing them from losing cash, personal data or inadvertently downloading malware."

"Automated tools preventing the loss of personal data are always a welcome addition to people's online security armoury" said Tony Neate, Managing Director of GetSafeOnline.org, the UK's national internet security awareness initiative. "In combination with the commonsense advice and information given on our website, it all helps to ensure safe and enjoyable internet usage".

The service is free to those customers of banks and other organisations that subscribe to the SOLID Authentication service from First Cyber Security.
