iQ Global, a leading Norwegian-based Cyber Security and Business Intelligence company, operated by domain industry veterans, has announced the release of its latest game-changing online threat monitoring service.
iQ Abuse Scan, is the newest service by the creators of the industry-leading online threat reporting, management and mitigation platform iQ Abuse Manager. iQ Abuse Scan monitors domain names, IP addresses, Name Servers and Mail Servers for reports of malicious activities, such as Phishing, Botnets, and Malware. Instantly sending data-rich notifications to the user when any are identified.
The notifications are highly configurable and are designed to be ingested into existing support or security processes and the systems that support them. Reports are delivered via email, text message, API and other integration options.
iQ Abuse Scan is powered by a purpose-built threat intelligence platform that is currently being used to monitor over 200 million domain names daily and has been adopted by more than 175 Top Level Domains, leading Registries, Registrars, hosting companies, and SaaS Platforms.
iQ Global, whose services enable an efficient way of making informed decisions and managing Cybercrime at scale, created iQ Abuse Scan to cater for organisations such as third-party integrators, law firms, MSPs, web agencies, Registrars and Hosting companies with anywhere from single to tens of thousands of domain names and other internet resources to monitor.
Many, if not all, organisations already have processes and systems set up to deal with support, feedback, complaints, and security reports. The service was therefore designed to feed the reports it produces into them, instead of requiring users to log into yet another system on an ongoing basis.
Based on a simple “pay-as-you-use” subscription model, combined with a quick onboarding experience and powerful automation, iQ Abuse Scan is a low-maintenance tool for anyone wishing to bolster their current security efforts with additional threat reporting.
In addition, cost control is built-in. There are no long-term subscription commitments, users can get started for free and choose a plan later. Each plan includes a set number of reports. Any unused reports roll over to the following month.
iQ Abuse Scan is an excellent choice for hosting companies, organisations with low abuse rates, organisations who want to add monitoring to their internal efforts, web agencies, and developers.
Michael B. Halvorsen, iQ Global’s CEO, said,” We are incredibly proud to launch iQ Abuse Scan. It’s a result of a lot of hard work from the team and great customer feedback. The recent investment by long-time customer The Swedish Internet Foundation will allow us to accelerate feature releases, global marketing efforts and of course, new product releases.”
He added, “These are exciting times for us. We have amazing partners and customers, and our products are helping to make the internet that little bit safer every day. We want to help as many customers as possible deal with malicious threats. iQ Abuse Scan is another big step in this direction.”
