PhormSecure offers network level protection from fraudulent websites and dangerous software by warning you in real time. No need for any downloads or updating, it all works automatically.
Fraudulent sites, known as phishing sites, trick you into providing bank details, passwords, and other confidential information. This is a major problem: data from the Anti-Phishing Working Group, of which Phorm is a member, recorded 363,000 new fraudulent websites in 2010.
Fraudulent software, known as malware, can cause harm to your computer. There was a huge increase in malware according to Symantec's Internet Security Threat Report in 2010. The security firm identified over 286 million malicious code threats and recorded more than 3 billion malware attacks during the year.
PhormSecure protects you from these threats by checking the addresses of sites you visit against industry blacklists of known dangerous websites produced by professional anti-fraud security firms.
