Cybersquatting Protection by Braintrace

Braintrace Launches Cybersquatting and Brand Protection Services

Salt Lake City, UT – January 22, 2019 – Braintrace™, a leading provider of advanced cybersecurity products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Cybersquatting Protection by Braintrace.  Offered as a Product Enabled Service (PES), Cybersquatting Protection by Braintrace introduces intelligent URL and brand protection against cybersquatting—registering, selling or using a domain name with the intent of profiting from the goodwill of someone else’s trademark. It generally refers to the practice of buying up domain names that use the names of existing businesses with the intent to use the URLs for nefarious means.

Cybersquatting has evolved over the years to include advanced techniques, resulting in domain names that are, in some cases, indistinguishable from the original. Criminal actors use these malicious domains to conduct business email compromises, phishing and other damaging attacks. Cybersquatting Protection service by Braintrace protects organizations from these threats by providing early detection and protection from all forms of cybersquatting including bitsquatting, typosquatting, unicode and look-alike masquerading.

Aaron Sherman, Senior Director of Cyber Threat Intelligence at Braintrace states “When investigating cybercrime as an FBI Special Agent, I constantly witnessed organizations fall victim to these types of attacks and suffer catastrophic financial losses. With Cybersquatting Protection by Braintrace, organizations now have the upper hand and can prevent these attacks before they happen.” Cybersquatting Protection by Braintrace actively scans and detects when malicious domains are created and conducts deep analysis to determine their threat level to protect organizations from imminent attacks. A Cybersquatting Protection Dashboard provides up-to-the-minute visual representation of the cybersquatting threat landscape and allows for the option to mitigate any threats by initiating evidence-based enforcement action for domain take-downs.
