Cyber-attacks such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), phishing and malware, have long been used by cybercriminals to profit at the expense of businesses and their customers. PhishLabs stops these attacks and prevents future threats by disabling the ecosystem (i.e. compromised hosts, tools and services) that cybercriminals rely on to plan, stage, launch and monetize attacks.
“It’s great to bring my experience to a team that fights back against external cyber threats,” said Mr. Hilfiger. “Not only do we stop attacks that are happening, we also make it painful for the cybercriminals that target our clients. It’s a compelling, unique approach that prevents future online attacks.”
PhishLabs is the leading provider of cybercrime protection and intelligence services that fight back against online threats and reduce the risk posed by phishing, malware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other cyber-attacks. The company fights back against cybercrime by detecting, analyzing and proactively dismantling the systems and illicit services cybercriminals depend on to attack businesses and their customers. With a fixed-fee service model that ensures alignment with client goals, the company partners with businesses to decrease attacks, reduce online fraud and prevent the loss of customer trust.
