Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 18, 2004
Netriplex (http://www.netriplex.com) announced today that as a result of the exponential increase in phishing and spoofing via email, it has implemented anti-fraud technology into its spam filtering service. The addition of this technology effectively stops fraudulent attempts at grabbing user names, passwords and other sensitive information from recipients of this type of email.
"When we see a growing concern in the industry, we make it our top priority," said Jonathan Hoppe, Chief Technology Officer for Netriplex. "Fraudulent attempts to grab sensitive information from users has been on the rise, and we've been working hard to develop an extremely accurate method of catching these emails in an effort to protect our customers and further ensure that our anti-spam solution is the most effective on the market today."
Phishing or Spoofing is a serious problem because it entices users to submit private information to an untrustworthy source. Once private information has been compromised, it is used to illegally access accounts in an attempt to transfer funds or make fraudulent purchases. In a recent Gartner survey of 5000 U.S. adults, they estimate that 1.98 million people have experienced this type of crime in the last year resulting in approximately $2.4 billion in losses.
While the financial services industry is most commonly the target of phishing schemes, businesses with large client bases are often hit as well. AOL, Citibank, Paypal, eBay and others have all been victims of these scams in the past. "Not only does phishing create the opportunity for financial loss, but it damages the reputation and brand of the business under attack and lowers consumer confidence in e-commerce altogether," said Hoppe.
Netriplex launched its 100% effective anti-spam and anti-virus solution on January 1, 2004 after several years of research and development. During the last five months Netriplex has received an overwhelming response to the service from businesses who are being buried by the ever-growing amount of junk email. Because Netriplex's Anti-Spam Solution has the ability to be 100% effective, companies can see the complete elimination of Spam and viruses within a matter of days, quickly bringing a significant return on investment.
