RSA and Check Point have announced a technology agreement to provide consumers around the globe with enhanced, real-time protection against Trojans, phishing and other online attacks.

The agreement will see RSA supplying real-time online threat intelligence feeds from its FraudAction anti-Trojan and anti-phishing services to Check Point's solutions. This is integrated into the existing anti-phishing functionality available in all Check Point ZoneAlarm premium consumer products.

The RSA FraudAction solution is a 24/7 service designed to detect, track, block and shut down phishing, pharming and Trojan attacks perpetrated by online fraudsters. The company claimed that it has shut down more than 300,000 illicit websites across 140 countries to date.

Bari Abdul, vice president of consumer sales at Check Point, said: “Leveraging external threat information from RSA enables Check Point to strengthen its detection and analysis capabilities and offer superior protection to our customers. Implementation of anti-Trojan filtering and identity theft protection helps address some of the key customer needs and pain points. We are pleased to add RSA to our list of technology partners as we work together to provide customers with strong levels of protection.”

Christopher Young, senior vice president, technology, products and markets at RSA, said: “Our relationship with Check Point is another example that inventive collaboration between industry leaders can expand our collective abilities to protect consumers against ever-evolving online threats. This brings more value to our users by integrating real-time detection and blocking capabilities on a wider scale.

“Together, we can grow an even stronger security ecosystem in order to become a more effective and organised entity against the vast underground network of fraudsters.”
