Keep Your Dating Site Safe: RSA’s Threat Detection & Fraud Prevention Solutions Protect Client Data From Malicious Intent

Sean Garrity Sean Garrity • 5/03/17

The Short Version: Handing over personal and financial information to dating websites can be scary when considering some of the looming dangers on the web. That’s why it’s so important for dating site owners and admins to protect their users. RSA helps more than 30,000 businesses worldwide secure their online environments. With its threat detection and fraud intelligence suites, RSA empowers site owners to quickly detect and mitigate threats to their customer and proprietary data so users can focus more on cultivating relationships.

It’s no secret the web can be a dangerous place. Every day seems to bring news of another data breach or cyber attack. According to the Insurance Information Institute, a staggering $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million consumers in the US alone last year.

In 2016, half a billion web records were taken or lost, and vulnerabilities were found in 75% of all websites. This is especially troubling for daters who give out an array of personal information on sites where they’re looking for love.

It’s imperative for dating site owners and admins to keep their customers’ information safe from cyber attacks, and RSA can provide the solution.

Serving more than 30,000 customers globally and almost half of the world’s Fortune 500 companies, RSA secures businesses’ online environments to safeguard users from malicious intent. The company’s threat detection and prevention suite, NetWitness®, coupled with its fraud and risk intelligence solutions, mitigates hazards and protects customer data from falling into the wrong hands.

A Comprehensive Security Suite Built to Defend Your Site

RSA provides online threat detection and response, identity and access management, fraud prevention, and risk management solutions in its NetWitness® Suite. Using its products, including Logs & Packets, Endpoint, and SecOps Manager, companies are not only able to remediate attacks faster but can prevent them from happening in the first place.

RSA provides a comprehensive security suite to safeguard customer and proprietary data.

The company boasts best-in-class response times, which keeps clients safe and information secure. RSA’s solutions were built to prevent business disruption through advanced threat detection and cyber incident response.

Identify & Mitigate Dangers with Advanced Detection

RSA’s NetWitness® Logs & Packets, Endpoint, and SecOps Manager all help companies identify ransomware, zero-day attacks, and advanced threats. The solution does this by collecting data across multiple capture points on all platforms. It then analyzes the data through behavior analytics, data science techniques, and algorithms to separate normal activity from potentially harmful activity. All the data is then measured against each other and prioritized, easing the burden on analysts and incident response teams.

This process helps security teams assess incidents and respond quickly. It also reduces incident investigation and resolution times. RSA’s platform is effective because it allows admins to reconstruct attacks to understand how they happened, which leads to more successful remediation plans.

Dive Deeper into Endpoints to Quickly React to Strikes

It’s inevitable your network will be attacked at some point. RSA recognizes this, which is why its NetWitness® Endpoint solution goes beyond merely monitoring and collecting activities on your network. Endpoint is a full-spectrum threat protector; it’s watching every part of your system to protect employees and clients on all your different platforms.

Other endpoint security solutions miss threats either because they aren’t digging deep enough or aren’t fully engaged in the system and only scan areas with financial data storage. NetWitness® looks into all of an organization’s endpoints, both on and off the system. This allows them to not only uncover new threats faster but provides three times faster incident response, which is key for quarantining the threat and minimizing damage.

NetWitness® Endpoint also delivers key information on each threat such as level of seriousness, where it started, and how to fix it. It utilizes “alert fatigue” by flagging anything suspicious in the system. The platform then analyzes it and tells you just how dangerous a threat it is to the system, and, if there are other threats in the system, prioritizes it accordingly.

Analytics Help Uncover Suspicious Activity Across Your IT Environment

Online security tools aren’t very useful if they’re unable to effectively weed through every piece of data to locate and mitigate threats. Just one advanced persistent threat can be devastating to a business and its customers.

Using Intelligent Prioritization, RSA’s NetWitness® Endpoint looks at every potential threat in your system and rates it. By doing so, you can see the leading indicators of an actual cyber attack. This reduces the number of false alarms that steal precious man hours from the real threat lurking in your network. NetWitness® keeps your uptimes high and your overhead low.

Fraud & Risk Intelligence to Track Emerging Hazards

The RSA Fraud and Risk Intelligence Suite is yet another part of RSA’s offerings to safeguard your clients from online and mobile fraud, data breaches, and identity theft. It works in real time to prevent fraud from occurring and secures client transactions.

For instance, RSA’s FraudAction analysts have shut down more than one million cyber attacks, and RSA’s Adaptive Authentication has fraud detection rates of 90 percent. Those are just some of the important numbers you (and your clients) want to hear when doing business over the web and mobile devices. What’s more, RSA’s FraudAction Cyber Intelligence Services actually watches fraud trends and reports on cybercrime attacks. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Safeguard User Data from Online Vulnerabilities

Get totally secure consumer access with RSA Adaptive Authentication which reduces online and mobile fraud in a customizable way. Companies can add tiers of biometric authentication (fingerprint and retinal scanning) or knowledge-based authentication (answering questions) to increase the security of information exchange.

Installed either on-premises or hosted in the cloud, companies can let the RSA Risk Engine determine the best type of step-up authentication based on the situation or the users. This authentication has a high success rate for seamless transactions for nearly all users. Don’t just take our word for it, though. RSA Adaptive Authentication currently protects more than 500 million global users over 8,000 global installations.

If your IT team is spending too much time fighting or preventing fraud, RSA FraudAction is the best way to monitor phishing, malware, rogue mobile apps, Trojan viruses, and other major threats that may lurk in your system. By using this outsourced, specialized group of analysts, your company can detect threats quickly, shut them down, and recover stolen credentials. These analysts are familiar with the dark web and IP addresses that frequently “harbor” cyber attackers. You get the Navy Seals of cyber security without all the overhead, resources, and integration of creating your own department.

Know Your Enemy: Gain Insight into the Cybercriminal Underground

The Covert Ops of the RSA Fraud and Risk Intelligence Suite, the Cyber Intelligence Service gives you insight into the digital criminal underground targeting your organization and clients. The experienced, multilingual team keeps an eye on the underground forums, IRC chat rooms, and other secret communication channels on which criminals conduct business.

More than just reporting, the Cyber Intelligence Service finds the suspects of these online crimes. They coordinate and launch stings, which reveal their infrastructure and organization. Usually, this leads to partners in crime and cross-channel fraud, which results in a better understanding of how they work and how RSA can protect your company from them.

Adaptive Authentication Pinpoints Fraud Across Mobile Applications

Ascertain risk and set up the appropriate level of security no matter where your clients are accessing their online profiles and accounts with Adaptive Authentication. Google’s 2015 report on “Micro-moments” showed people have their smartphones by their side 87% of the day. That’s a limitless number of times your clients can be targeted for fraud.

With Adaptive Authentication, you can add an extra layer of mobile protection for clients no matter if they are on iOS or Android. RSA also uses a special mobile-dedicated risk model to analyze risk with all the factors affecting mobile clients, including device, cell-tower triangulation, and fraud patterns in the mobile environment. High-risk mobile transactions get step-up authentication methods to further secure data. It’s just one more way RSA is watching all the areas of your company for cyber threats.

30,000+ Customers Worldwide Rely on RSA’s Security Solutions

The news of frequent data breaches means, when it comes to your clients’ data, you shouldn’t leave security to a novice. RSA provides over 30,000 global clients with multifaceted security capabilities to keep them from cyber threats.

“RSA is the only company that enables the three most critical elements of a sound security strategy: rapid response and detection, control at the user access level, and business risk management,” said RSA’s CTO Zulfikar Ramzan. “Business-Driven Security enables organizations of all sizes to take command of their evolving security posture in this uncertain, high-risk world.”

Zulfikar’s comments sum up nicely why so many businesses trust RSA to help keep them secure. It’s imperative for dating site owners and admins to protect their daters, and RSA provides an effective solution to do so.
