How to Fight Abuse

To successfully fight abuse at scale you’ll only need a few ingredients

Intelligence facilitates detection, Evidence builds the case

Detecting abuse requires gathering intelligence, tracers, and predictors that combined will identify and give evidence of these activities.

We have done the heavy lifting by researching over 200 Abuse feeds, assessed them for quality, false-positive rates, and integrate only the best ones.

Quality Reports

Low false-positive rate, low source overlap, high update frequency, rich report details, good source reputation.

Covering threat types like

phishing, malware, botnets, pharming, spam or fake webshops

Technical integration

iQ facilitates the integration with the source and makes sure that the update and scan frequency is optimized.

Automation reduces the workload

Much thought has gone into the platform architecture and application logic to facilitate automation. For example, reports are grouped into cases, so you don't process the same event several times.

Automatic Resolution Logic
Case reappearance prevention logic

Abuse Policy Development

To manage abuse efficiently, you need policies that define acceptable use and provide you legal causeways to take action. You must have internal procedures that describe how you practice your policies.

iQs senior Compliance and Policy staff can assist you in developing or reviewing existing policies if needed. We can also assist in developing internal routines and practices to help you most efficiently enforce your policies.


Want us to work together on optimizing your Policies and Procedures?


Want to Outsource Abuse?

We understand that for various reasons, not everyone has the internal resources to manage abuse. We, therefore, offer Abuse Management as a professional service. Our experienced staff could either handle all abuse or work in cooperation with your existing team. Services will be performed in accordance with your abuse policies.

Considering outsourcing your abuse management?

Need something bespoke?

The full tech stack of the iQ Abuse Manager is developed in-house. This allows us to do deep integrations, complex customization and rapid iterations. Do you have any special workflow requirements?
