Silver Tail Systems Raises the Bar for Cybersecurity and Fraud Prevention

Security Pioneer Extends Leadership With Mobile Visibility, Enhanced Security Intelligence and Flexible Reporting

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - Silver Tail Systems, Inc., the leader in web session intelligence and behavioral analytics, today announced the availability of Silver Tail Systems Forensics 3.0, the biggest software release in the company's history. This latest iteration deepens visibility into web sessions and mobile traffic, extends security intelligence applied to user behavior and broadens reporting capabilities of online activity for use within an organization. By enhancing customers' understanding of online traffic, Forensics 3.0 accelerates their ability to respond to mobile and online threats in real-time and better protect against cybercrime.

Web Behavioral Analysis Solution For Mobile E-Commerce
The rising tide of mobile devices and applications is creating vast opportunities for businesses to connect with customers, while simultaneously opening up an additional threat vector for cybercriminals. "As ecommerce and mobile payments continue to grow in popularity, the security of the payment experience will be an ongoing focus for merchants and consumers who want to pay for the things that matter to them via these channels," says Ed Olebe, Group Head, PayPass Wallet Services, MasterCard Worldwide. "The insight and analysis that the Silver Tail product provides is a key way to enhance the experience for merchants and consumers alike."

Forensics 3.0 provides deep visibility into mobile application traffic correlated with core website and mobile web sessions, providing the analytics and information needed to rapidly identify and address the threats facing today's web-enabled platforms.

Accelerate Investigation Velocity With Augmented Security Intelligence
To enable fraud and security teams to find and prevent threats as quickly as possible, Silver Tail introduces StreamView™, an intelligent, simple interface that provides a single view of web sessions and user behavior. StreamView includes Clickstream Markers that provide a heuristic approach to analyzing user clickstreams and offer an automated intelligence layer to assist investigations. When analyzing user behavior, customers will see highlighted clues that indicate behavioral anomalies such as geographic irregularities in the user behavior, changes in the user-agent from click to click and more.

Flexible Reporting and Security Rule Management
Web session visibility is key to many groups inside an organization: fraud, security, risk, senior executives and others. Forensics 3.0 enables organizations to easily manage and report on the performance histories of security logic by deploying reporting and security logic to every single page of a website with a single click, and organizing rules by tag. This offers company stakeholders the flexibility to create custom reports from web session intelligence to make better decisions about the business.

"To protect their businesses, organizations need to fundamentally understand the differences between legitimate and criminal behavior on the web. This requirement applies to both fixed and mobile traffic," said Nick Edwards, VP of Marketing at Silver Tail Systems. "Forensics 3.0 provides this visibility along with industry leading security intelligence to allow customers to rapidly embrace new innovations such as mobile without compromising security."

"Silver Tail Systems is a true pioneer in the security industry, and we struck a relationship with them as a result. We believe this latest release is another proof point of their leadership and innovative approach to solving difficult security challenges that organizations face around the world," said Debby Hopkins, Chief Innovation Officer of Citigroup.
