Firm Says Product Can Reduce 'Phishing' Expeditions
Digital Envoy, a provider of IP Intelligence solutions, has released a web-based solution it says prevents e-mail fraud and associated "phishing" attacks. The solution is part of its new "Inspector" suite of products aimed at online fraud.
Phishing is an online scam that uses seemingly valid e-mails and URLs to deceive consumers into disclosing personal information such as Social Security numbers, bank account details and credit card specifics. Digital Envoy said its IP Inspector E-scam solution allows consumers to quickly verify the origin of suspect e-mails and check the validity of embedded URLs, which often appear to belong to legitimate financial service organizations such as credit unions and credit card companies.
