We have invested significant resources into improving our SOC and Testing Lab to create an environment where our analysts provide customers with the most comprehensive and proactive security posture for dealing with these sophisticated and evolving threats.
Arlington, VA (PRWEB) October 19, 2009
Cyveillance, a world leader in cyber intelligence, today announced significant enhancements to its Security Operations Center (SOC) and Testing Lab, providing customers with more comprehensive investigative capabilities and support. In conjunction with the facility enhancements, Cyveillance has also developed a training certification program that ensures employees are providing customers with world class service 24 hours a day.
"Today's online attacks often include multiple cascading threat vectors and social engineering aspects which make them extremely difficult to identify," said Panos Anastassiadis, President and CEO of Cyveillance. "We have invested significant resources into improving our SOC and Testing Lab to create an environment where our analysts provide customers with the most comprehensive and proactive security posture for dealing with these sophisticated and evolving threats."
With greater investigative and support capabilities in the SOC and Testing Lab, our staff focus on both the technological and psychological aspects of malicious Internet threats which enhances Cyveillance's effort in delivering real-time intelligence and forecasting. The enhanced facilities are also easily scalable to quickly meet increased customer demands without sacrificing quality of performance or service. The benefits afforded by these upgrades can be seen in recent Cyveillance reports outlining increased phishing and malware threats:

Cyveillance's state of the art, 24x7 security nerve center is in constant pursuit of online criminals and fraudsters, detecting tens of thousands of phishing and malware distribution sites around the globe each month and providing the actionable forensic intelligence needed to quickly and effectively shut them down. Since 2005 Cyveillance has detected phishing attacks targeting well over 2,300 unique brands worldwide and is able to address these threats regardless of origin, supporting over 22 languages. Cyveillance is the only company offering money back guarantee service level agreements (SLA) designed to provide customers with the most comprehensive, reliable and accurate cyber intelligence and protection available. Cyveillance's comprehensive monitoring technology continuously sweeps the Internet, discovering more than 100,000 new sites each day.
In addition to traditional services, Cyveillance's SOC and Lab engineers are actively involved in assisting industry organizations such as the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). In conjunction with the APWG's Internet Policy Committee (APWG-IPC) and the Carnegie Mellon Cylab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory (CUPS), Cyveillance has volunteered its time and resources to help establish the APWG/CMU Phishing Education Landing Page Program. The goal of this initiative is to educate consumers on online safety at the "most teachable moment" - when they have just clicked on a link in a phishing "lure" (i.e. an email, tweet or social network posting). Phishing targets that click on the identified and previously taken down phishing site will be re-directed to the APWG/CMU Phishing Education Landing Page where they will be instructed on phishing attacks and how to avoid them in the future.
