When your employees report suspicious emails, the Cofense PDC analyzes them and delivers high-priority threat indicators straight to your team, enabling you to act swiftly as a threat spreads in your network.
Again, our intelligence is based on what we see in your own environment, on clues in emails your users were concerned enough to report. Our analysts deliver indicators of compromise (IOC’s), adding context and insight so your response team can:
- Assess the priority and understand the full scale of the problem
- Communicate upstream to the other members of your security team or through your SIEM
- Determine the best course of action to respond to the threat
We are a team of dedicated phishing analysts locked in on phishing threats. Backed by the Cofense Research and Threat Intelligence teams, we apply findings from our global customer base to alert you to signs of danger your analysts might not see. For example, when a threat actor probes your network, our analysts recognize indicators that might elude your team. By alerting you right away, we can prevent a full-blown emergency from erupting later on.
Our analysts draw on deep experience to provide intelligence you can act on NOW. These alerts empower faster, more effective decisions. Stop sophisticated phishing attacks in minutes, not days.
The Cofense PDC relieves you of the repetitive, time-consuming tasks needed to qualify, investigate, and document phishing alerts. You can focus on responding to verified threats, instead of spending your limited time and resources on data gathering. By qualifying and investigating threats and explaining the risks, we take the workload off your staff.
Unlike other services, the Cofense PDC supports your team from alert to resolution. We combine the power of user email reporting with our phishing defense expertise, significantly improving the meantime to detect and respond to active threats already inside your organization.
