Arkose Labs™ Introduces Arkose Email Intelligence™

Arkose Labs | January 30, 2023

Arkose Labs™, one of the worldwide leaders in bot management and account security, announced the launch of Arkose Email Intelligence™. This new tool prevents bots and bad actors from using fraudulent or dangerous email addresses to target online services and apps. Legacy email intelligence systems are not optimized and are too costly to utilize in high-volume applications such as new account registration that are targets of bot-driven assaults. Arkose Email Intelligence combines email risk discovery with the industry-leading Arkose Protect, a bot detection and challenge platform, to create the first email intelligence solution. This solution prevents bots and bad actors from using fake, throw-away, and other high-risk email addresses to develop synthetic online accounts and launch volumetric account takeover (ATO) attacks. In the second half of 2022, the creation of bogus accounts increased by 81% compared to the first half. Additionally, 11% of all attack attempt sessions were ATOs in 2022 and were of the same severity. Extremely high market demand exists for an email intelligence service that is both highly effective and reasonably priced. Existing services are exorbitantly costly, often compelling CISOs and product teams to use email intelligence at restricted locations more profoundly in the user flow of an application, such as during the payment transaction. This trade-off leaves important occasions, such as the creation of a new account, exposed to assault and misuse by email addresses that are fake or high-risk. Arkose Email Intelligence is meant to provide robust abuse protection at a much lower cost than previous industry solutions. This allows businesses to afford email intelligence beyond standard transactions. In addition to combating automated and fraud farm attacks, Arkose Email Intelligence offers organizations over forty relevant data insights. These extensive data points and signals give a multidimensional perspective of the risk connected with the email address, allowing for additional threat assessment and decision-making. About Arkose Labs Arkose Labs is one of the industry leaders in bot management. Its novel method identifies genuine user intent and mitigates threats in real time. In addition, risk assessments and interactive authentication difficulties degrade the return on investment (ROI) behind attacks, ensuring long-term security and enhancing consumer throughput. The firm, headquartered in San Mateo, California, with operations in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, San Jose, Costa Rica, and London, United Kingdom, placed 106th on the North American Deloitte Fast 500 list for 2022.

ReliaQuest Announces Launch of GreyMatter Phishing Analyzer

ReliaQuest | March 08, 2023

On March 7, 2023, ReliaQuest, a leading firm specializing in security operations, announced the addition of Phishing Analyzer to its GreyMatter platform, which is now available globally. This capability automates the entire abuse-mailbox management process, reducing the risk of phishing attacks by analyzing suspicious emails, taking remedial action, and sending follow-up notifications to users. Phishing attacks are a persistent and time-consuming issue, and although many organizations have Secure Email Gateways (SEGs) to combat email-based threats, malicious emails still manage to get through. Most phishing emails trick users into sharing valuable information, leading to costly Business Email Compromise (BEC) incidents that have cost organizations over $43 billion since 2016. In response, organizations are increasing their phishing awareness programs to empower contractors, employees and partners to help the security team battle against email phishing. However, the constant need for vigilance and alertness can lead to alert fatigue and burnout among employees. Even when users spot phishing emails, they need a way to notify security teams to prevent email-based attacks. GreyMatter Phishing Analyzer automates this process, allowing security teams to evaluate email-based threats in order to determine how they are gaining access and who has been affected, potentially saving thousands of hours and reducing employee dissatisfaction. GreyMatter Phishing Analyzer removes the burden of the abuse-mailbox by automatically analyzing reported emails to determine whether they are malicious or benign. If malicious, the reported email is removed from the user's inbox, as well as other matching emails from across the organization. Additionally, the tool enables security teams to see the full scope of the phishing attack without leaving the platform, and ReliaQuest's machine-learning capabilities speed up the analysis process, identifying phishing campaigns targeting the organization by matching against duplicate and similar emails across the organization. Once thoroughly analyzed, the tool automatically sends an analysis report to the security team and an analysis decision (benign or malicious) to the reporter, enabling security teams to add security controls for stronger protection. Overall, GreyMatter Phishing Analyzer can help organizations reduce the risk of phishing attacks and allow their employees to protect their organization better. About ReliaQuest ReliaQuest is a leading firm that boosts security operations. Its platform, GreyMatter, automates detecting, investigating, and responding to security threats across different tools and applications, including cloud, endpoint, and on-premise environments. The company has established a global presence, serving more than 700 customers, with 1,200 professionals spread across six operating centers worldwide.
