ACT – Protecting the Digitial World
Most of us have at some point received a phishing email, spam email, or landed on a fake / malicious website. The value of the digital corruption world is growing faster than ever before, and ultimately the financial institutions, service providers and global powers are now the largest victim of the growing trend.
Catching the Phish, removing the trend
A complex problem once again requires a simple solution to combat the global epidemic. Current technologies including SPF, DKIM and SPAM detection are failing at an ever-increasing rate. Spear Phishing has led to authentic email accounts with said records being used to send phishing emails, thus bypassing the best detections, rendering them all but useless. The quality of the phishing emails are now far superior to those of years past and more people are being caught out than any time in history.
With the very nature of Every Asset requiring a company to register both their legal identity and their purpose / products, ACT has developed upon this to migrate the power into the digital world.
Taking a financial institution as an example, they would be registered for financial services and sending financial emails. Taking the approach of every email being a temporary asset, we are able to provide a UID for every asset created. Using a very fast API, the financial institution is able to use ACT to secure the email and then distributes the unique email to the recipient.
Combine with the central AI of ACT, it would be impossible for a phishing email to bypass even the most basic of email applications, rendering the digital scam useless.
Making websites more communicative
Users are reliant on the SSL key going green within the address bar of their browser. Google and other engines are placing more focus on companies to migrate their websites to SSL protected, which has helped a great deal in protecting data. However, a hacked website used for a phishing or malware attack may still be protected by that same green key, until caught by one of the search engines or malware detection services. Phishing sites can stay up for a day or more, in which time, they will have caught many thousands of victims.
With ACT, the website owners can register their website purpose and legal identity, creating a mask which can be used for real time identification. With a simple app executing within the user’s browser, even if a user clicks through a phishing email, or follows a malicious link on the web, the app can detect the purpose of the website, reporting to the user. With simple AI, the app can also scan the website for violating content – that which the author has not registered to use and provide either warnings, or completely mask the website from use. The central AI services can scan those sites reported by the user’s app and make incredibly fast decisions, even notifying the website owner, search engines and the SSL key providers of the breach. Once again, the power has been migrated to the end user, making all users the internet’s detectives.
