PhishMe Expands Availability of Phishing Incident Response Solution with Cloud and Managed Deployments

PhishMe Triage is now more easily deployed to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes

LEESBURG, VA – London, UK – 2 August, 2016 – PhishMe, Inc., the leading provider of human-phishing defense solutions, announced today that it has added powerful new features and deployment options to its phishing threat management and incident response platform, PhishMe Triage. PhishMe Triage users can now choose between three deployment options to fit their organization’s needs. Still available in its original form as a virtual appliance, PhishMe Triage now offers a secure cloud and a fully managed option to customers.

PhishMe Triage Cloud delivers a faster time to deploy with a dedicated instance hosted in the PhishMe secure cloud infrastructure that allows customers to continue to manage the day-to-day operational and analysis tasks. With PhishMe Triage Cloud, new customers can be up and running in a matter of days. PhishMe Triage Managed gives customers the opportunity to completely outsource their phishing incident response programs, and includes customizable SLAs, reporting and analysis of reporting phishing incidents while freeing SOC and IR teams to concentrate on other critical tasks. The additional deployment options for PhishMe Triage makes phishing incident response more available to organizations of all sizes and needs.

PhishMe Triage Cloud and PhishMe Triage Managed are already in use by dozens of customers today.  John Helt, Cyber Security Analyst at Scripps Networks Interactive, a leading developer of lifestyle-content for television and the Internet, said: “PhishMe Triage allows us to encourage our users to report suspicious messages knowing that each will be carefully analyzed with prompt feedback returned to each individual. The solution provides our response teams the rapid, detailed information they need to address e-mail threats quickly and efficiently without wasting time chasing false positives.”

Further strengthening the Triage capabilities, PhishMe has added new significant features to the solution, these include:

Reputation Prioritization with VIP Reporter

PhishMe Triage now prioritizes suspicious activity reported by trusted “VIPs” within an organization. The ability to set reputation and trust levels for VIPs  helps operators quickly assess and respond to possible threats as reported by the most vigilant and astute reporters in the company.

Streamlined Management with Syslog Alerts

PhishMe Triage can now proactively provide timely threat information to SOC operators even if they are not actively monitoring the solution when a threat is reported. With Syslog Alerts, PhishMe Triage can drive a pre-configured alert into the customer’s SEIM to trigger workflows established to handle security alerts.

Lastline Analyst Integration

PhishMe Triage and Lastline Analyst have partnered to provide security teams with an integrated phishing incident response malware analysis solution. The integration has made it efficient for mutual customers to automatically and accurately identify malware much faster, and increase the value from existing security investments

“As malware attacks continue to grow exponentially, it is important for businesses to rely on a solution that is widely available and accessible. The expansion of PhishMe Triage deployment options enables businesses to scale up and scale down their security efforts for a leaner experience,” said Aaron Higbee, CTO at PhishMe. “Updates to our Triage offerings will also enable our customers to significantly reduce incident response times, whilst allowing them to obtain accurate threat information for timely security alerts.”

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.”
