As phishing and spear-phishing attacks continue to disrupt businesses in every industry, IT teams are seeking superior anti-phishing software to help prevent devastating security breaches.
A phishing email attack is designed to trick users into revealing sensitive information like passwords, credit card data, even bank account numbers. A phishing email appears to come from a source the user trusts – a bank, a shipping company or another business the user often interacts with.
What is spear phishing? While phishing attacks cast a wide net and seek to dupe a large number of users, spear-phishing is an even more targeted attack. Using information pulled from a user's social media or web presence, attackers send an email that appears to come from a trusted colleague or supervisor, or even from the chief executive in cases of CEO fraud phishing. These emails may ask users to transfer money, divulge business information or share login credentials that provide hackers with access to the corporate network.
While many anti phishing initiatives rely on training for users in how to spot phishing attacks and avoid them, offering phishing tips alone is clearly not a successful strategy – more than 90% of hacking attacks today begin with a phishing email.
