If you’ve wondered what I’ve been up too…
Since 1998, my major focus has been the NetCaptor browser. It was the first tabbed browser, and just about everyone else has copied the idea (including IE7?). In July last year I started moving in a new direction. My friend Blake Hayward and I founded CollectiveTrust Solutions, Inc. to build a world-class anti-phishing platform and software applications.
I think we’ve succeeded. The product has been in beta and pilot with several customers since October and performed beyond our expectations. While other app miss a significant number of attacks, our product catches new sites over 99% of the time without using a block list. The application is remarkably effective – it just works.
More information on the company and the product will be forthcoming, but I wanted to give y’all some warning as I start blogging on phishing and fraud issues.
