CSC Unveils 3D Domain Monitoring Solution on DomainSec ℠ Platform
CSC, a world leader in business, legal, tax, and domain security, today unveiled its powerful new 3D Domain Monitoring solution as part of their DomainSec platform. 3D Domain Monitoring provides an immediate, multi-dimensional view of the threat vectors targeting corporate domain portfolios. It enables enterprises to identify suspicious or malicious domains created by third parties poised to confuse customers with fake websites, scams, or phishing attacks.
The registration and exploitation of fake branded domains to commit fraud and launch cyberattacks has run rampant. “Based on an analysis of four of CSC’s research initiatives over the past three years, more than 7 out of 10 domains containing brand names on the internet are fake,” says Mark Calandra, president of CSC’s Digital Brand Services business. “Often the intent of malicious domain registrations is to leverage the trust consumers have for the targeted company to launch phishing attacks and digital brand abuse that leads to revenue loss, traffic diversion, and a diminished brand reputation.” Additionally, between one-third to almost two-thirds of the fake domains are configured with MX records, which can enable them to launch email phishing campaigns.
“In today’s world of zero-trust security models, the first line of defense for many companies is proactively monitoring and mitigating threat vectors targeting their global domain ecosystem,” says Ihab Shraim, chief technology officer of CSC’s Digital Brand Services business. “Research shows that phishing and brand attacks most commonly begin with the registration of malicious, confusingly similar domain names, compromised or hijacked legitimate domains or subdomains, or via email equipped with an attachment malware payload. This can enable the deployment of ransomware on the host machine, or an email equipped with a link that redirects to a fake website owned by bad actors to inject malware via a browser vulnerability.”
For corporations managing multiple brands globally, with hundreds or thousands of domains within their portfolio, rapid detection and de-activation of these fake and malicious domains is vital. 3D Domain Monitoring provides a multi-dimensional view of the threat vectors targeting specific domains. Clients will have the ability to mitigate risks and threats by taking fast, effective enforcement action via CSC’s unparalleled range of enforcement options.

Anterra Capital: Pandemic and Food Price Inflation Fuel Investor Interest to Accelerate Transformation of the Food and Ag Sector18.5.2022 07:00:00 CEST | Press release
A crushing pandemic and, more recently, the Ukraine war have convinced investors more than ever that the world needs to radically change how it produces, distributes and consumes food, says Adam Anders, managing partner of the international food and agriculture specialist venture capital firm Anterra Capital (“Anterra”). Anders: “The pandemic highlighted the fragility and adverse health impacts of our current food system: soaring prices, empty shelves in stores; the fact that unhealthy diets are a major risk factor for getting Covid; that the way we treat farm animals could trigger the next pandemic. Post our final closing, the devastating impact of the Ukraine War on the global food supply has increased the awareness among investors even further. This, plus our focus on deploying proven biotech and digital solutions to shake up the lagging Food and Ag-sector, go a long way in explaining the higher than expected interest in our second fund.” Anterra is proud to announce the closing of
