Greenwood Village, Colorado – February 8, 2023 — Today, zvelo announced the release of PhishScan, a cloud API query service that instantly verifies phishing URLs or IPs, to provide immediate protection against new and emerging phishing threats. Powered by zvelo’s premium phishing threat intelligence, PhishScan is ideal for email, SMS/Text, or browser security applications that require immediate phishing verification for maximum end user protection.
PhishScan is powered by zvelo’s premium phishing threat intelligence to offer maximum inline threat protection against active phishing threats. Additionally, as attackers are increasingly using tactics like MFA bypass and Man-in-the-Middle (MiTM) attacks to thwart common security layers, protection against these threats requires blocking access to a phishing URL or IP to prevent credential harvesting. PhishScan provides real-time verification of whether a URL or IP is a phish. PhishScan also provides coverage against highly targeted, personalized URL phishing attacks through predictive phishing detection and phishing campaign detection capabilities.
Offered as an API query service, PhishScan is a cost-effective and low maintenance solution that enables security applications to deliver fast, inline protection without the costs and infrastructure requirements that come with ingesting and managing threat feeds.
“zvelo developed the PhishScan service in response to customer requests for real-time phishing verification using an easy-to-implement API”, stated Jeff Finn, zvelo’s President and CEO. “Security customers wanted a simple, low-cost solution that provided an immediate yes/no phishing verification for inline email, SMS/text, surfing applications that didn’t require the overhead and investments associated with ingesting and curating threat feeds.”
