Why do I need Adversary Disruption?

Today’s adversaries utilize sophisticated attack infrastructures to quickly deploy large volumes of malicious attacks across multiple surfaces (web, social, mobile apps, etc.) – potentially exposing millions of employees, customers and brands. The criminal underground is becoming increasingly sophisticated at scaling and executing phishing, fraud, and attack campaigns. Pursuing takedowns of this fraudulent content in compliance with legal policies and network terms of service is a top priority, however, this process can be complex, costly, and can take days or even weeks to resolve. You need proven automation that can execute takedowns at scale to stay ahead.
