Entertainment and media companies are attractive targets for cyber attacks. Online gaming account credentials can be stolen and sold in underground markets to willing buyers. Popular media brands can be abused, exploiting a brand’s reputation to steal sensitive data and infect PCs. Online media and gaming sites can be flooded by distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks to extort funds and make political statements.
Major direct costs are incurred from these attacks due to lost revenue and fraud. According to a study by the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a DDoS attack is $1.2 million. Cyber attacks also cause significant indirect costs. Threats that impact site performance and steal account credentials diminish the user experience and cause dissatisfaction. Attacks that abuse your brand dilute it’s value and erode customer trust.
PhishLabs fights back against phishing and malware cyber attacks that target your users and abuse your brand. We monitor global spam and malware activity 24/7/365 for cybercrime attacks. When an attack is detected targeting you or your users, we quickly take action to mitigate the threat. But we don’t stop there, because we know simply stopping the attack isn’t enough to stop cybercriminals.
We investigate and disable the underlying ecosystem of tools used to plan, orchestrate, launch and monetize the attack.
Our unique approach inflicts real pain on cybercriminals, minimizing their ROI and forcing them to rebuild before launching new phishing or malware attacks. Our approach deters cybercriminals, preventing future attacks that target your users or abuse your brand.
PhishLabs also provides in-depth intelligence on DDoS botnets and their attacks. Using this intelligence, you can proactively prepare for, rapidly assess and mitigate DDoS attacks to prevent impact to online sites and services via cyber attacks.
