Webroot and RSA have partnered to offer real-time phishing detection capabilities.

Combining Webroot's real-time anti-phishing service with RSA's FraudAction anti-phishing solution, the two companies said that this technology partnership is engineered to allow enhanced analysis of suspected phishing sites and faster detection of attacks.

Avi Rosen, director of anti-fraud solutions at RSA, said: “Having additional real-time capabilities helps us to reduce the lifecycle of phishing attacks, while helping to ensure our customers are receiving the most efficient and effective anti-phishing service available.”

He said that combining Webroot's capabilities with RSA's automated phishing detection will help it qualify suspected phishing sites and determine which URL requires further investigation.

Webroot's cloud-based service collects and processes hundreds of attributes of a website in real-time in order to determine its threat profile.

Jeff Santelices, senior vice president of worldwide field operations at Webroot, said: “Teaming up with an industry leader like RSA demonstrates the value of our URL classification and reputation solutions to helping solve today's challenging phishing attacks.

“We provide an innovative cloud-based machine learning solution that automates what has traditionally been a manual process, ensuring that it takes mere seconds, instead of hours or days, to detect phishing attacks.”
