COCC Offers MarkMonitor Anti-Phishing
The Avon, Conn.-based core processor said it will market the MarkMonitor solution under COCC's Sentry Services Suite of risk-management solutions.
MarkMonitor technology is designed to detect phishing attacks in the planning stage and quickly shut them down. Financial institutions monitor their sites and access industrywide reports through a Web portal and members and customers can report suspicious e-mails directly through their credit union or bank Web site, the San Francisco-based company said.
"The MarkMonitor anti-phishing methodology is unique in the industry as a result of its focus on preventative as well as reactive measures," said Wendy Healey, COCC's first vice president for product management.
COCC provides core and image processing and other technology services to about 150 financial institutions, including approximately 40 credit unions.
