Protect your customers and safeguard your brand with early phishing detection
Understanding Early Detection
When your organization is the target of a phishing attack, timing is critical. In fact, the speed of detecting new phishing attacks is a prerequisite to being able to block these attacks before they scale and cause widespread damage.
Early phishing detection can alert an organization or their takedown vendors — the companies that take confirmed malicious links/URLs offline — to a suspicious email, thus dramatically speeding up response and remediation times.
The Anatomy of a Phishing Attack
The pattern Agari sees in phishing attacks is very similar to that of a criminal testing out a stolen credit card: First, a small charge is tested using the stolen card.
If the charge goes through, the criminal will progressively increase the charge, gaining confidence. Eventually, the criminal will max out the card or account, devastating the victim.
Similarly, behavior in the testing phase of a phishing attack follows the same pattern. The criminal will test smaller amounts of phishing attacks to test whether or not he is getting through to the targets rather than being blocked by ISP spam filters or other traditional filtering mechanisms.
Once he knows he will not be blocked, he will scale the number of messages, reaching up to tens and even hundreds of millions of messages to unsuspecting consumers.
