“Enough is Enough!”, says RevBits CEO
Under its Enough is Enough campaign, RevBits to provide its award-winning, patent fortified Email Security solution to organizations involved in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, at no cost.
For immediate release
MINEOLA, N.Y., December 8th, 2020 - RevBits today announced it is taking an aggressive position to prevent COVID-19 related cyber-attacks worldwide.
“Unprecedented times require unprecedented action. What we have seen during the pandemic is that the number of cyberattacks has exponentially increased, mainly targeting vulnerable staff and networks at hospitals, healthcare facilities, and organizations involved in COVID-19 vaccine research, production and distribution. The impact can be truly devastating, with an additional loss of lives on top of the already heavy toll of COVID-19. This is not acceptable and must be prevented.” said David Schiffer, CEO.
“The vast majority of cyberattacks start with a user opening a malicious email, generally with a link to a fake login page or with an attachment containing such a link or malicious code itself. The RevBits Email Security solution identifies phishing campaigns and prevents accessing these fake websites or downloading ransomware or other malicious code. Therefore, we have decided to offer our solution free of charge during the pandemic for all companies active in the fight against COVID-19”, Schiffer continued.
The terms of usage, during the license period, are quite simple:
No Licensing Fees, No Commitment and No Strings Attached!
“While today most companies have already deployed a secure email gateway, studies have shown that they miss about twenty percent (20%) of threats and therefore costly and devasting cyber-incidents continue”, said Mucteba Celik, CTO. “RevBits Email Security can be deployed as an additional plugin for Microsoft Outlook that is quickly added, and provides an extra layer of protection that blocks those threats missed by the gateway. There is no need for additional resources or any changes to an existing environment. RevBits Email Security provides maximum protection, with minimal effort.”
Award-winning RevBits Email Security is the most sophisticated email security solution on the market today. Its patented architecture, running at the workstation level, affords sufficient time for over fifty algorithms to analyze each email, a luxury not available in gateway products. Also, a panel displays a probability score of malware and the suspicious email components, enhancing security awareness training.
A second patent, Page Impersonation Identification, uniquely detects and blocks phishing attempts to steal credentials via fake login pages, one of the most common methods used by criminal hackers to access systems.

It’s a common misconception that the only threats to an enterprise’s security come from external actors. Whether intentional or not, 47% of organizational data breaches are the result of internal human error, such as a misplaced device or document. Moreover, some employees present an even larger risk than others. According to recent reports, younger employees are more likely to bypass security protocols that are viewed as an impediment to their productivity. When it comes to onboarding new employees, young or old, enterprises must have proper security awareness & anti-phishing training, in addition to a strong privileged access management solution, to guard against the different types of human error that could create security vulnerabilities.
Although email phishing has taken many forms throughout the years, the most common type of email scam is also the oldest. Since 2003, black-hat hackers have created domain names and web pages that look virtually identical to actual websites and have linked these copycat sites to vulnerable users via emails. It is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a real web page and a fake one, especially for companies without sophisticated anti-phishing tools. For all companies, it's important to have the best anti-phishing solutions in place to ensure all data is protected and downtime is avoided.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
