Recorded Future Partners with FraudWatch

I see that Recorded Future, who we worked with early on,  is partnering with a company doing 'Brand Protection'.  Which is the place we had originally tested a concept.  In our case both the security of brands due to competitive activity, but also the risk of change in their context.  Also beyond this the inclusion of specific 'Take down' services.  This makes what they do more direct, rather than just future visual forecasting of changes.  Also links to things in the news, like the manipulative use of bots or detection of fraudulent brand online presence.   Overall a good idea.

Recorded Future Introduces Takedown Services to Complete Comprehensive Brand Protection Offering

Go From Brand Monitoring to Active Response With Recorded Future Through FraudWatch Partnership

BOSTON – August 1, 2018 – Recorded Future, the leading threat intelligence provider, has announced it will now provide takedown services as a part of the company’s brand monitoring offering through a new partnership with FraudWatch International, Inc. This feature enhances the company’s brand protection services, which include defenses against social media brand abuse and typosquatting, the detection of fraudulent websites, and more. This announcement comes following the publishing of The Forrester Wave™: Digital Risk Protection, Q3 2018,1 in which Recorded Future was named a Leader.

Fake accounts, apps, and websites are often designed to profit from maliciously redirected or accidental traffic, but they can also result in major damage to an organization’s brand reputation. These accounts can host inappropriate content and target customers with phishing scams. Additionally, these fake domains can host malware or trick users into giving away their credentials, representing a serious security risk to consumers.

“Comprehensive threat intelligence must include brand protection that addresses both reputational concerns for organizations and online abuse risks for customers of those organizations. Threat intelligence starts with detection and drives to security actions. Partnerships with companies like FraudWatch are critical to delivering risk reduction for our customers.” — Matt Kodama, Vice President of Product at Recorded Future     .... "
