PhishMe Launches New ‘Threat Alerts’ Service to Help Organizations Get Ahead of Phishing Dangers

Global leader in phishing defense and intelligence now provides users real-time warnings of phishing and malware trends

Leesburg, (Va. USA) June 29 2016:  PhishMe, a global provider of phishing-defense solutions for the enterprise, has today launched PhishMe Threat Alerts. The service has been introduced to provide subscribers with increased visibility of critical, and developing, phishing and malware threats and trends. Identifying potential compromise indicators allows organizations to take remedial action and prevent threats before they can gain a foothold in the network.

“Mandiant’s 2016 M-Trends report indicates the number of days to detect a breach has dropped from 204 in 2014 to 146 in 2015. This report also states that the percentage of breaches detected by internal teams has actually increased to 47% in 2015 (compared to just 31% in 2014) with the median number of days for an internal team to detect a breach now 56 days,” explains Aaron Higbee, CTO and Co-Founder of PhishMe. “While these statistics indicate there has been improvement in breach detection, it is still a long time to be left exposed. What we hope to do, by introducing PhishMe Threat Alerts, is to provide developing intelligence to organizations that can act as an early warning system. With over 91% of all network attacks traced back to a successful phishing attempts, identifying and illuminating developing threats has to be a priority.”

PhishMe Threat Alerts encapsulate indicators of phishing attacks that the PhishMe Research team has confirmed in the wild.

Aaron concludes, “We receive and analyze millions of messages daily, from a wide variety of sources, which are then dissected to determine relationships between them. Our unique clustering algorithms sort malicious emails based on a number of factors which allows us to watch for, and identify, new and emerging threats. By providing this actionable intelligence as real time threat alerts, we hope to help organizations prioritize, investigate, and respond to threats that may target their networks.”
