CallingID, the leading provider of safe browsing solutions, announced today that its advanced safe browsing products, Link Advisor and Toolbar, will be included in the new CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2008 product as its Web Inspector.

CallingID uniquely focuses on protecting web users by helping them be more comfortable with the sites they visit and become more aware of potential exposures before they click on a link or divulge information. CallingID technology includes a set of comprehensive real-time tests and an ever growing database of over 6,000,000 verified sites that the user can be comfortable doing business with, together with numerous real-time data input tests to help protect the user from providing information to dangerous, phishing or spam sites.

CallingID's software and comprehensive database lets users see the details of the site owner they are about to deal with. It also alerts the user of potential exposures or problems before they click a link received by email, instant messenger, web page or in a Word document. CallingID automatically detects personal information and helps alert users before such information is sent to fraudulent or potentially problematic sites.

"We selected CallingID as a technology party after exploring multiple technologies," says David Luft, Senior Vice President of Product Development for CA. "Phishing and URL spoofing are increasingly popular ways of cyber criminals duping people into disclosing personal information. CallingID's implementation and approach to safe browsing offers an easy and friendly way to protect users from phishing and from being unconsciously exposed to dangerous sites. Some key differentiators include the ability to detect new problem sites in real-time, help protect users from sending confidential data to unknown or fraudulent sites and help provide positive confirmation and verification of legitimate sites before they are accessed. This technology enables us to round out our new security suite with an added layer of protection."

"We are pleased that CA selected our technology to complete the CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2008," comments Yoram Nissenboim, CallingID CEO. "We have made major investments to reduce the angst that web users experience when trying to conduct business over the Internet or just share personal information. CA's choice supports our direction and we look forward to a lasting partnership with them."
