ZibaSec Joins APWG, Leveraging Global NGO's Unique Data Corpora for Research and Development
ZibaSec first launched its flagship product PhishTACO January 2020. Co-founders Julie Davila and Daniel Shepherd, software and cybersecurity experts, developed PhishTACO with the goal of making a security awareness training and phishing defense platform that could be leveraged by the world's more secure organizations and everyday individuals.
Since its launch, PhishTACO has been deployed across multiple organizations, including the U.S. Department of Justice, which includes the FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshals and well over 40 other agencies.
"APWG's service to the trade and data provisioning for its member companies' applications and services is always a pleasure to curate - but there is an extra thrill in witnessing the genesis of new ideas and approaches. We look forward to ZibaSec's success utilizing APWG's data in protecting the brands that customers trust," said APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy.
The partnership with APWG will fuel the mission of ZibaSec to democratize enterprise-grade phishing security software and to make phishing education and prevention accessible to everyone.
The rich intelligence data allows ZibaSec engineers to further polish its proprietary full-stack machine-learning model which allows for enterprises and individuals to check any email for phishing indicators in real time. ZibaSec recently opened up its waiting list to gain access to this tool and announced that it would be 100% free for individuals.

APWG's eCrime eXchange provides ZibaSec with a rich source of intelligence on the locations of active phishing campaigns. Each campaign can be analyzed and profiled, offering valuable information about phisher tactics and techniques that can be used to identify other, previously unknown attack sites.
APWG's eCX has been the global non-profit-managed nexus for machine-event data related to cybercrime since 2004, starting out as an FTP service for members organizing against the then-nascent global conflict with cybercriminals. Today, the eCX, in its fifth revision, operates as an API platform providing upwards of one billion-plus data entities per month to APWG members worldwide.
