Instead of masks and guns, today’s bank robbers use the web. Fraudsters are increasingly counterfeiting the look and feel of banking and insurance brands to trick users into compromising their information.

Criminals use unauthorized domain name registrations to divert traffic away from legitimate content; unauthorized phishing offers lure your customers to third party or fraudulent sites; and mobile banking fraud is growing as crooks target customers through smartphones and apps. 

Unauthorized claims of affiliation or endorsement on social media sites or general Internet content are also increasing, as third parties look to benefit from your brand equity. The leaking of sensitive material from internal or external sources is a security risk to your brand, and can result in reputational issues or financial penalties.

At NetNames, we work with large financial organizations to monitor fraudulent activity and prevent loss – including our pioneering mobile app monitoring and enforcement service – ultimately helping you protect both customer trust and brand reputation.
