About Malcovery® Security
Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis about email-based threats (phishing, spam and malware), delivered through software and services, that identify, prioritize and target cybercriminal activities and provides effective countermeasures.

The company's patented and patent-pending technology provides the ability to identify the root sources of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), delivering rich actionable intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging email-based threats.

Unlike services that serve only as a reactive response to these attacks today—services that simply address the symptoms but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal and their activities—Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt email-based threats on an organization.
