YouMail, Inc. and Fortra’s PhishLabs Sign Mutual Referral Partnership
Agreement Enhances Mutual Customers’ Detection, Intelligence, and Mitigation Capabilities Against Phishing Attacks
IRVINE, Calif. January 24, 2023 – YouMail, Inc., today announced a partnership with Fortra’s PhishLabs. The agreement strengthens YouMail Protective Services’ defenses with curated threat intelligence, while enhancing PhishLabs’ security protections to block voice phishing (vishing) attacks.
PhishLabs is a cyber threat intelligence company that delivers Digital Risk Protection through curated threat intelligence and complete threat mitigation. PhishLabs provides comprehensive brand impersonation, account takeover, data leakage, and social media threat protections in one complete solution for the world’s leading brands and companies.
YouMail Protective Services performs AI-based threat detection, analysis, and mitigation for communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to protect against unwanted and malicious traffic. These services serve as a B2B watchdog solution that helps CSPs uncover unlawful calls made on their networks, while helping large enterprises protect their brands against robocall spoofing campaigns.
“YouMail is excited to partner with Fortra to improve our ability to detect and block malicious vishing attacks and voice scams for mutual customers,” said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. “This partnership represents a security win-win for businesses of all sizes and their end users.”
YouMail Protective Services identifies scam calling traffic by combining YouMail’s patented technologies, a team of in-house experts, and data from billions of calls and thousands of calling campaigns. These services rely on data from the YouMail Sensor Network, which is collected via messages and audio trails left by illegal robocalls to YouMail app users, representing real consumers and small- to medium-sized businesses. In turn, state and federal authorities use the data to sanction bad actors and to support legal actions against malicious robocallers, connecting YouMail users directly to the national fight against robocalls.
“We look forward to strengthening the security safeguards that protect our customers by teaming up with YouMail,” said Billy Smith, Managing Director of Fortra’s PhishLabs. “In addition to our strong detection capabilities for SMS attacks, this partnership will give our users a trusted resource to enhance the detection and mitigation of scams designed to target consumers via the telephone.”
