Pittsburgh, PA and New York, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
Malcovery® Security, the leader in delivering actionable threat intelligence to neutralize email-based threats, and Return Path, the global leader in email intelligence, announced a partnership to deliver multi-layered brand protection to enterprises. The combined usage of the Malcovery and Return Path offerings delivers an ‘end to end’ approach for brand protection that includes key security disciplines such as authentication, investigation and response.
Through this agreement, Malcovery and Return Path will cross-promote the value of their representative solutions to improving companies’ brand protection. Combined, Malcovery and Return Path solutions help brands analyze their email ecosystems and implement domain protection, email brand monitoring, DMARC support, and phishing, spam & malware threat intelligence, to prevent attacks, allowing joint customers the ability to be proactive in preventing future attacks.
Return Path’s data networks currently help to protect more than 2.4 billion mailboxes worldwide, representing nearly 70% of the estimated worldwide total. This global scope gives Malcovery the ability to make significant progress toward protecting enterprises for customers of both companies.
“Phishing and fraudulent email are serious problems that can compromise the reputation of a brand with just one illegitimate message, let alone the long-term monetary damage they can cause,” stated Ken Takahashi, General Manager, Email Brand Protection, Return Path. “Our partnership with Malcovery, through their RedHanded Alliance, allows our joint customers to take a data intelligence -led approach to detect and respond to these threats.”
‘We are delighted to have Return Path join the Malcovery partner program, the RedHanded Alliance,” stated Greg Coticchia, President, CEO and cofounder of Malcovery Security. “This is our response to customers asking Malcovery to provide a broader approach to reducing and preventing phishing attacks through improved automation and intelligence.”
Malcovery was launched in early 2013 as a result of an exclusive, worldwide license from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and based on research in cyber forensics conducted at the Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) at UAB, Malcovery has quickly gained commercial success with many Fortune 500 enterprise customers such as eBay, Facebook, IBM, Citi, LinkedIn, Assurant, and Visa.
