CYREN Launches New Service to Combat Phishing Attacks

Companies mentioned in this article: CYREN

MCLEAN, Va., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN), a leading provider of cloud-based security solutions, today launched its CYREN URL Phishing Feed, a powerful new service that allows its web and email security partners to block phishing sites before they reach unsuspecting end users.

A new option for CYREN's OEM and private label partners, the CYREN URL Phishing Feed identifies thousands of new phishing URLs each day using a robust combination of Recurrent Pattern Detection(TM) technologies, phishing URL logic, and human analysis by CYREN GlobalView(TM) Security Lab researchers.

By filtering out media URLs and identifying sites with multiple sub domains, the CYREN URL Phishing Feed then looks for known phishing keywords and applies a fuzzy logic detection algorithm to create a real-time list of dangerous phishing sites that attempt to mimic big-name websites.

"The launch of our new CYREN URL Phishing Feed provides our partners with the most powerful phishing protection technology available," said Brett Wilson, vice president of products at CYREN. "Scanning billions of emails each day, the CYREN GlobalView Cloud is able to provide our labs with a truly global perspective that allows an ever-growing number of phishing sites to be more readily identified - allowing our partners to add tremendous value for their web and email security customers."
