Social identity theft protection
Posted on 16 October 2013.
Riskive unveiled FriendGuard, a free app that leverages advanced math and science to protect individuals and families against social identity theft and malware attacking their social accounts.

“We are in the early stages of a new era of cyber attacks,” said Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest. “Social platforms have opened up a window for cyber thieves to steal and harvest personal information of individuals and businesses for profit.”

FriendGuard leverages advanced algorithms to detect if individuals are connected to hackers. Individuals who activate FriendGuard are provided with a FriendGuard Score, like a credit score but for security. This score is derived from our expansive database of malware and other compromising networks and real-time analysis of evolving threats in an individual’s network. Users receive alerts when someone posts malware or a click-jacking scam on their wall or a friend’s wall, suspicious connections, and other malicious content.

FriendGuard is free for individuals, while subscription pricing applies for families ($3.99 per month) and allows parents to protect their kids from cyber attacks as well as other suspicious connections.
