Built for organizations looking for a predictable cost approach of monitoring multiple domain names and Internet resources, iQ Abuse Scan can provide reports of malicious behavior, which can be easily integrated into existing support and security systems. The new service is released by iQ Global, a Norway-based cybersecurity and business intelligence firm.
Operated by domain industry veterans, iQ Global previously developed their online threat reporting, management, and mitigation platform, iQ Abuse Manager. Now they have launched this new service called iQ Abuse Scan. In order to detect complaints of harmful activity including malware, botnets, and phishing, iQ Abuse Scan monitors domain names, IP addresses, name servers, and mail servers, giving the user data-rich notifications right away when any are found.
The alerts generated by iQ Abuse Scan may be easily customized and are intended to be integrated into current support or security procedures as well as the systems that underpin them. Reports are sent through many integration methods, including email, SMS message, and API.
“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,” said Michael B. Halvorsen, CEO at iQ Global. “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.”
iQ Global stated that more than 175 Top Level Domains (TLDs), well-known registries, registrars, hosting providers, and SaaS Platforms have already opted for iQ Abuse Scan, which is driven by a purpose-built threat intelligence platform that is presently being used to scan over 200 million domain names every day.
iQ Global developed iQ Abuse Scan to serve organizations like third-party integrators, law firms, MSPs, web agencies, registrars, and hosting companies with anywhere from one to tens of thousands of domain names and other Internet resources to monitor. iQ Global’s services would enable an efficient way of making informed decisions and mitigating cybercrime at scale.
Processes and procedures are already in place in most, if not all, organizations to handle assistance, feedback, complaints, and security reports. Instead of having customers to regularly enter into yet another system, the service was created to feed the reports it generates into them, stated iQ Global.
iQ Abuse Scan is a low-maintenance solution for anybody looking to supplement their present security efforts with extra threat reporting. It is based on a ‘pay-as-you-use’ subscription model, paired with a rapid onboarding process and sophisticated automation.
Cost control is also integrated. Users may sign up for a free trial and then pick a plan at a later time; there are no long-term membership commitments. There are a specific number of reports in each plan. Reports that aren’t utilized in one month carry over to the next.
Hosting firms, organizations with low abuse rates, businesses looking to supplement internal efforts with monitoring, online agencies, and developers should all strongly consider iQ Abuse Scan, concluded the company.
