(businesspress24) - London, UK – May 28, 2020 – RiskIQ, the global leader in attack surface management, announced the launch of the COVID-19 Internet Intelligence Gateway, a free, one-stop cybersecurity resource centre. With thousands of newly created COVID-19-related websites launching daily, the gateway accepts submissions of suspicious URLs or emails, providing a lookup service that taps into RiskIQ's massive global crawling infrastructure to analyse and compile malicious URLs related to COVID-19.

Security practitioners can lookup any suspicious COVID-19 URL via the Gateway. Submissions are crawled and analysed by RiskIQ's systems and the results sent back. Because each malicious URL is added to RiskIQ blacklists through community participation, the site will become an authoritative source of intelligence that practitioners can use to block and investigate COVID-19 scams as they increase on an unprecedented scale.

"Our goal with the Gateway is to help the security community work together in our response to the influx of criminal activity," said RiskIQ CEO Lou Manousos. "The COVID-19 Internet Intelligence Gateway will be a powerful resource for keeping organisations safe during this crisis."

FBI cybercrime reports have quadrupled, and phishing attacks surged 350% after the pandemic started. Currently, Google blocks 18 million COVID-19 scam emails daily, and RiskIQ noted 317k new websites related to COVID-19 over just two weeks.

The Gateway compiles and improves upon the catalogue of complimentary resources RiskIQ released in the early days of the pandemic to empower the cybersecurity community, which is battling a massive spike in cyber threats related to COVID-19. Users who sign up for the COVID-19 Internet Intelligence Gateway will also have access to RiskIQ's other complimentary offerings:

- COVID-19 Daily Intelligence reports compiled by RiskIQ's agency-trained analysts. This intelligence helps improve situational awareness and inform security teams, which face new requirements during these times


- Lists of new infrastructure related to COVID-19 observed by RiskIQ's global crawling network, updated daily. Security teams can download newly observed hosts and URL intelligence to aid in investigations and improve their organisation's security posture
- Email Intelligence, including top subject lines to help educate users on COVID-19 scams and malware. RiskIQ analyses thousands of emails to provide crucial insights security teams can leverage toward protecting employees and customers
- Free Digital Footprint Snapshot, a quick and easy way to understand digital assets that belong to your organisation outside the firewall so you can secure them from a spike in COVID-19-related cybercrime
- A 30-day PassiveTotal query boost enables analysts to ramp-up their investigations of COVID-19 threats with RiskIQ's unique data sets
