Entrust unveils online anti-fraud service

Online anti-fraud service announced

Entrust Wednesday announced an online anti-fraud service that can be a source for information research as well as provide Entrust's fraud-protection and third-party risk-assessment services.

Called the Entrust Open Fraud Intelligence Network, the service is expected to be used primarily by financial services firms protecting online accounts, said director of identity products and solutions, Steve Neville.

"This is for customers interested in fraud detection and that's primarily financial services which may see the majority of attacks these days," says Neville.

Intended for use by security administrators responsible for online security, the Entrust Open Fraud Intelligence Network provides Web-based access to news stories concerning security as well as a resource library on legal and technical subjects.

"The resource library contains information related to legislation, for instance," said Neville. In addition, the service centralizes access to Entrust's TransactionGuard fraud detection service as well as third-party services from IPGeo, MaxMind and others.

"For instance, the service lets you query a particular IP address against a threat index to understand the value of that IP right now, is it associated with fraud," says Neville.

The service, available now, ranges in cost based on number of online customers, Neville said, but for a bank with one million online banking customers, the cost would be less than 10 cents per year per customer.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
