Phishing Protection Alliance Formed Between Imperva and Cyveillance

Imperva : 06 April, 2010  (Company News)
SecureSphere Web Application Firewall from Imperva strengthened with the inclusion of Cyveillance's Anti-Phishing Data Feed to provide enhanced protection against phishing attacks
Imperva and Cyveillance have announced a partnership to shield organizations against growing phishing attacks. Under the agreement, Imperva integrated the Cyveillance Anti-Phishing Data Feed as part of its ThreatRadar service to further enhance its SecureSphere Web Application Firewall, enabling enterprises to deploy comprehensive reputation-based security through proactive detection of phishing threats before they become a problem.

Through its real-time Internet monitoring capabilities, Cyveillance is able to offer the industry's most accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date phishing site detection data feed. Utilizing the Cyveillance Anti-Phishing Feed as an additional layer of security for its ThreatRadar service, Imperva is able to apply detailed policies to detect access to specific site content and deliver visual warnings as well as generate SecureSphere alerts. Alerts are viewed by the SecureSphere administrator who can then take action against the attack either blocking it or notifying a designated security professional.

"With this partnership, Imperva and Cyveillance have taken Web application firewalls to a new level, enabling enterprises to block phishing attacks at the gate—preventing a major headache for virtually every company worldwide," explained Amichai Shulman, Imperva's chief technology officer.

According to Cyveillance's recent "2H 2009 Cyber Intelligence Report," during the second half of 2009, 399 brands were first-time targets of phishing attacks, nearly double the amount of first-time targets than in the first half of the year. Averaging over 36,000 confirmed, unique attacks per month in the same period of 2009, phishing attacks continue to succeed despite advances made in consumer education and added protections implemented by security departments within the targeted organizations.

"We continue to see a large demand for our market leading early warning cyber threat feeds to enhance the efficacy of existing security solutions," said Panos Anastassiadis, COO of Cyveillance. "We appreciate the opportunity to work with such a forward looking company and applaud Imperva for constantly enhancing its services and working to stay one step ahead of the online criminals. Our ability to accurately identify and confirm fraudulent phishing URLs is the perfect complement to the ThreatRadar service and uniquely positions Imperva to offer more comprehensive protection to their customers."
