Digital Envoy, a provider of Internet Protocol-based intelligence applications, has joined the Anti-Phishing Working Group.

Digital Envoy will be one of the industry association’s sponsors. The group was created to combat Internet-based identity theft and fraud.

The group now includes more than 1,000 members.

“As these online scammers continue to become increasingly more sophisticated, it’s imperative that companies pool their resources to combat this global problem and eliminate the anonymity the Internet affords these cyber thieves,” said Bill Calpin, chief executive officer of Digital Envoy, in a statement. “We look forward to sharing our knowledge of the IP universe with the consortium of industry leaders represented by the APWG in order to combat both current varieties and future mutations of email fraud that negatively impact the global channel of Internet communications.”
