New Options Enable Subscribers to Access In-Depth Cybercrime Reports and Embed Continuously-Updated Data onto their Proprietary Applications

GLENELG, Md., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HackSurfer LLC, an independent cybercrime data and analytics social collaboration network, announced the launch of a suite of premium API and report options. These new offerings include HackSurfer Reports, which are monthly in-depth cybercrime activity reviews, as well as three Application-Programming Interface options (APIs) that enable subscribers to embed customized cybercrime data and analytics onto their proprietary applications. An API is a software-to-software interface for accessing a Web-based software application or Web tool.

Subscribing to one of HackSurfer's APIs (www.hacksurfer.com/api) provides a set of programming instructions and standards that enables subscribers to add to their own applications a range of customized cybercrime data, including cybercrime events, industry risk scores, industry target summaries and top trending tags. Introductory pricing for the Basic HackSurfer API plan is $499 per month. The Basic Plus HackSurfer API plan, offered for a limited time at $799 per month, adds additional features, including continuously updated information on open source and other software cyber vulnerabilities, and HackSurfer's proprietary Cyberfact event model for succinct descriptions of cybercrime events.

"Using our innovative API technology, companies can tap into HackSurfer's smart-data warehouse, which is chock full of sophisticated cybercrime information, and create customized apps, reports or dashboards for their own branded sites and other applications," said Jason Polancich, Founder and Chief Enabler of HackSurfer. "This targeted business intelligence service not only adds value to the subscriber's online offerings; it also promotes greater awareness of how cybercrime directly threatens industries and companies."

HackSurfer is also debuting subscription plans to the company's monthly by-industry cybercrime reports.  Called HackSurfer Reports, these in-depth reports present a retrospective look at the prior month's most cybercrime-affected industries, using the data and analytics of HackSurfer's data warehouses plus insight from staff cybersecurity analysts.

"Companies and professionals can now get access to data-driven, Gartner-style reports on cybercrime, technology and industry," said Polancich. "In 2014, we'll be expanding this to include weekly activity reports, as well as offering a full range of custom and 'white label' reporting and analysis solutions tailored to meet companies' needs for cyberdefense and related tech information."

HackSurfer is the first cyberdefense platform to leverage the power of social collaboration to provide businesses with actionable information about specific threats that can affect their bottom lines, reputations, brands and markets. Monitoring millions of web and social media sources for cybercrime data, the company harvests, analyzes and summarizes this information to create a culture of proactive collaboration that protects businesses from current and future threats.
