RAANANA, ISRAEL, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
New add-on Allows Employees to Stop Phishing Attacks in Their Tracks
IronScales, a leading provider of phishing mitigation technology, has added a feature for Google for Business Email and Gmail users that accelerates the mitigation of phishing attacks. The IronScales software now comes with a special button allowing qualified employees to immediately report suspicious email, protecting the entire organization against incoming threats by triggering an automatic mitigation process.
IronScales reduces the impact of cybercrime on the bottom line by creating awareness and proactive behavior from every employee, giving them an active role in preventing phishing attacks. With the new Google feature, it significantly increases the ability of SMB/Es and enterprises to benefit from the IronScales technology.
"Phishing is the most popular way for cybercriminals to get into a company," says Eyal Benishti, CEO of IronScales. "By empowering employees to protect the organization against attack, companies significantly reduce their potential liability from reputation damage, ransomware extortion, and legal fees when their customers' personally identifiable information is stolen and sold on the black market."
While simple to use, the button triggers a complete chain reaction to protect the organization against ransomware, malware, bots, spam, spoofing, pharming, and general phishing attacks.
Upon reporting, the phishing forensics is automatically executed, including analysis of the number and skill ranking of the responders, multi AV, sandbox scan, and other proprietary analyses, which determine the mitigation response. Based on the SOC team's configuration, the message may end up in enterprise-wide quarantine, have its links and attachments disabled, or have the email completely removed from every other mailbox in the network. An intrusion signature is generated with each attack to the endpoints and to the SIEM.
The IronScales phishing mitigation, simulation and gamified training solution is also compatible with Microsoft Office Outlook Client.
IronScales, founded in 2013, pushes the cyber security envelope, going beyond detection with a crowd wisdom-based phishing training and mitigation solution. IronScales was initially launched in the 8200 Entrepreneurship and Innovation Support Program (EISP), a prestigious incubator and mentoring program for early stage ventures, founded by alumni of the Israel Defense Forces' elite Intelligence Technology unit. The IronScales team is comprised of security researchers and penetration testing experts, as well as experts in the field of effective interactive training. Customers include leading global corporations and Israeli security organizations. Visit us at http://www.ironscales.com for more information.
