Proofpoint Launches Two-Factor Malvertising Solution

Proofpoint, Inc. announced the launch of new protection against malvertising (malicious advertising), a technique attackers have used to invisibly penetrate computers of visitors to legitimate websites. Proofpoint's malvertising solution addresses this threat in two ways. For publishers, ad networks, servers, exchanges, optimizers, and demand-side platforms (DSPs), Proofpoint Malvertising Protection(TM) tracks the flow of malvertisements and warns owners about problematic ad networks. For Enterprises, Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection(TM) prevents malvertising infection of vulnerable site-visiting employees and warns IT teams of the suspect sites. As more and more business-related sites carry advertisements, and attackers increasingly leverage the online ads ecosystem to target users, the security implications of malvertising are significant for publishers and Enterprises alike. For Publishers and Demand Side Platforms, Proofpoint Malvertising Protection (based on technology from Proofpoint's acquisition of Armorize) analyzes not only the ad tags, but also the creative and the actual impressions served, providing unique insight into the entire ad chain and precisely pinpointing the problematic party within the larger ecosystem. This approach to protection ensures that ads are authentic and unaltered, and that impressions are compliant with brand safety standards, ensuring safer and higher quality ad inventory and overall ad-ecosystem security. For Enterprises, Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection prevents malvertising infection of site-visiting employees and warns IT teams of the suspect site. By using big-data analysis and advanced statistical modeling to proactively perform advanced dynamic malware analysis on potentially suspicious URLs, Proofpoint's predictive defense capabilities can detect malvertising even on legitimate sites, and even before employees click links. The Targeted Attack Protection solution's real-time dashboard and "follow-me" protection also provide an ongoing view into and defense against these attacks. This reduced time-to-detection and end-to-end insight and protection enables proactive protection of an organization's users, minimizing computer compromises within the enterprise, and reducing incident response time, effort, and costs.
