Company

Business description: MarkMonitor is a leading provider of corporate identity management solutions and has developed interrelated solutions for major global corporations. Online fraud is the fastest growing type of theft against consumers. It has a negative impact on the bottom line of corporations, but more importantly, it damages consumer confidence in the use of the Internet as a standard business interface. For most companies, business critical operations have migrated online and are now dependent on the Internet. MarkMonitor specializes in protecting corporate intellectual property online from infringers, scam artists and online black-market activities. Security within corporate boundaries is no longer sufficient. Companies must consider their valuable assets out in the Internet and aggressively protect them Outside the Firewallâ„¢.
