We now monitor vets and can notify you via email or API when new blacklist items hit your historic vet data.

Alerts provide monitoring of your key user data. As an example, you vet a user that scores positive on their email, and a few days later that email is added to the community as a phisher, our system can create an alert so you can quickly review the user, revet them if you wish, and take any necessary actions.

Tagging is used to score specific emails, emaildomains,TLDs, domains, names, IPs, CIDRs, and device fingerprints as good, bad, or to skip scoring. Items tagged as Bad will add negative scoring to the risk area, Good tags add positive scoring, and Do Not Score will set the item score to zero.

We have implemented a new algorithm for tracking the real-time movement of IPs across multiple Vets. Our service scores distance velocity between IPs and reports risk levels based on distances. As an example, you can now identify a user who tries to create an account or login from IPs in different locations, and score the risk levels based on the amount the distance changes.

This feature can be very effective for detecting account takeover attempts and devices that are connected to multiple proxies or servers.

The new tagging feature empowers your company to score specific emails, emaildomains, domains, IPs, device fingerprints, and names as good, bad, or to skip scoring.

Items tagged as Bad will add negative scoring to the risk area. Good tags add positive scoring, and Do Not Score will set the item score to zero. Good and Bad scoring is additional to standard area scoring.

To illustrate how tagging works, if you vet IP = 10.1.1.1, the vet will hit “Private or no geo IP” risk and score -10 for IP area. Adding tags of:
– Bad will add -130 to the IP score area, and the IP will now score -140
– Good will add +130 to the IP scoring area, and the IP will now score +120
– Do Not Score will set the IP scoring to 0

This gives you extra control over specific item scoring for emails, emaildomains, domains, IPs, device fingerprints, and names. If you think emails from “xyz.com” are all bad, just tag that emaildomain as Bad, and all vets with that emaildomain will have -130 added into the email score.

Tag details are also returned in the JSON response, so you can track Vets that hit your tags.

Unlike community data that impacts all customer vets, tagged items only impact your account vetting scores and are not shared with anyone. Adding tags is done in the Vet details area. To the right of tag-able items, you will see a drop-down button with tagging options. Just select the tag to add.

The portal has a new tab for managing all your tags. Click on a value to view all Vets that hit that tag.

In the future E-HAWK will provide an API to add, update, and delete tags so you can automate the entire process.
