ABA Endorses Anti-Phishing and Brand Protection Solution by Easy Solutions

​WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association – through its subsidiary the Corporation for American Banking – has endorsed the digital threat protection suite provided by Miami-based Easy Solutions, which includes anti-phishing monitoring and takedown services and other brand protection services.  This endorsement establishes the Easy Solutions platform as the anti-phishing and brand protection solution of choice to ABA members.
 
The endorsement follows ABA’s extensive due diligence, with oversight from ABA’s Endorsed Solutions’ Banker Advisory Council, and research support by the cybersecurity company Bancsec.  
 
“Financial institutions are embracing the digital revolution to remain competitive and relevant. While digital channels provide tremendous growth opportunities for banks, it also presents new challenges in combatting a greater volume of sophisticated online attacks,” said Bryan Luke, chairman of ABA's Endorsed Solutions Banker Advisory Council. “We selected Easy Solutions because they offer a holistic brand protection suite, which includes comprehensive coverage as well as unique detection and intelligence to protect the bank’s customer accounts, email addresses and personal information from fraudsters.” Luke is also president and COO of Hawaii National Bank in Honolulu.
 
Easy Solutions protects financial institutions around the world and the online activities of more than 100 million users from over 385 various organizations.  The company’s digital threat protection provides organizations with a proactive strategy against Internet threats. Benefits include continuous, machine-learning enabled monitoring and analysis of email, web and social media channels and rapid removal of identified attacks.
 
“The concept of digital trust will continue to gain traction in 2017 as criminals are motivated to infect any type of digital interactions with banks in pursuit of relevant information that will enable them to successfully launch and monetize fraudulent attacks,” said Ricardo Villadiego, CEO, Easy Solutions. “Banks understand the importance of mitigating any online risks and implementing a multi-layered approach to security. We’re excited that ABA is endorsing Easy Solutions’ Digital Threat Protection solution.”
