Anti-Counterfeiting and Anti-Phishing
Melbourne IT DBS provides the technology to monitor domain names, keywords and images with the specific task of identifying phishing and counterfeiting activity. Automated scans of websites, usenet newsgroups, and chat groups guard against potential infringement of a company's brands, traffic diversion, and objectionable content.
Melbourne IT's Anti-Counterfeiting service scans the internet for the depiction of digital information that is consistent with unauthorized distribution of products. Image recognition technology can identify logos and images that often represent fraudulent activity. Depending on the level of service, incidence reports are sent real-time to assigned client personnel for review and response, or to our brand protection team for further action. Summary reports show the number of incidents identified, settled and outstanding, and the actions associated with each.
Melbourne IT's Anti-Phishing service is a dedicated security measure that mitigates phishing attempts. Both text analysis and image recognition tools scan millions of web pages and email spam to screen for improper representation of a company's brands or marks. Efficiency is built into the system by prioritizing scans across the top ISPs and regions with predominantly high spam traffic. Analysts are in place 24/7 monitoring potential phishing activity.
Melbourne IT offers Response Services to help enterprises rapidly identify, abate, and recover from online brand infringement. We partner with an international network of contacts in the legal, government, and Internet Service Provider (ISP) communities to identify infringement sources and then assist clients with quickly shutting down fraudulent websites.
