To help prevent theft of enterprise data and user identities

RSA, the security division of EMC, has introduced a new CyberCrime Intelligence Service designed to help organisations identify computers, information assets and identities compromised by trojans and other online attacks.

The new managed service, powered by the RSA Anti-Fraud Command Centre, is designed to identify a subscribing organisation's compromised computers and user credentials including those that are leveraged via remote access.

RSA said that the CyberCrime Intelligence Service is engineered to provide information security professionals with actionable knowledge and information necessary to adjust policies and controls to prevent the loss of data to malware and careless employee activities.

The new service is based on the RSA FraudAction service and leverages monitoring and detection, alerts and reporting provided by RSA's team of fraud analysts. It allows security managers to use the information and analysis provided by the service to react to and remediate potential data exposures, employee identity theft, as well as infected corporate resources, the company said.

Uri Rivner, head of new cybercrime technology at RSA, said: We are seeing a celestial alignment within the world of online fraud which means that a much broader segment of corporate internet users are being targeted by criminals who are looking to steal more than just credit card numbers and consumer identities.

“Advanced, stealthy Trojans like Zeus that are detected less than 46% of the time and are readily available to online criminals who are interested in stealing information for illegal gain. Moreover, we estimate that the wildfire infection of these Trojans has expanded ten times between 2008 and 2009.

The RSA CyberCrime Intelligence Service is expected to be available worldwide by May 1, 2010.
