Kaspersky Takedown Service provides end-to-end management of the entire process of taking down malicious and phishing domains. The company along with Digital Footprint Intelligence helps analysts explore the adversary’s view of their company resources.
The Takedown service allows companies to effectively respond to malicious sources or phishing threats targeted at organisations and customers. Every week, Google detects about 46,000 new malicious websites, and every single day Kaspersky blocks more than 15,000 phishing and scan URLs.
If a company cannot eliminate the adversarial content, its clients may fall victim to spoofing websites and provide attackers with access to their personal and financial information.
Businesses also may face serious data leaks caused by botnets controlled by attackers’ command and control (C&C) servers. All of this can lead to brand damage, as well as a loss of revenue and customer trust.
However, managing the takedown of malicious and phishing domains is a complex process that requires special expertise, resources, and time.
With extensive experience in threat research and long term cooperation with INTERPOL, Europol and Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Kaspersky Takedown Service will ensure effective protection of businesses’ online services and reputation.
Due to its global coverage, no matter where the malicious phishing domain is located, the service can quickly dispose of it.
To do this, Kaspersky prepares all the necessary evidence, including a copy of the website, screenshots and traffic dump, both manually and via automated tools; they then send the request for the takedown to the relevant local or regional authority that has the legal rights to shut down the resource.
The customer gets notifications at every step of the process until the requested domain is successfully removed.
The service can be purchased independently or within a Digital Footprint Intelligence (DFI) subscription. In the first case, customers can submit requests for takedown of certain undesirable domains they discovered via Kaspersky Company Account, and in the second, the DFI service will take over-identifying of malicious or phishing resources attacking the customer.
After harmful content is identified that may initiate the takedown process then the customer will be notified.
The standard package offers ten takedowns per month. And based on the customer’s needs the service can be customised.
“Kaspersky Digital Footprint Intelligence, empowered with Takedown Service, is an important supplement to our Threat Intelligence portfolio,” said Vladimir Kuskov, Head of Threat Exploration – Kaspersky.
“Just like the other Kaspersky TI products, this service combines our experience to fulfill actual customers’ needs and reduce the burden on their cybersecurity departments, allowing in-house specialists to focus on higher priority goals,” commented Kuskov.
