Real-time Automated Actionable Phishing Intelligence

 

Richard Struse, the chief advanced technology officer at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently stated,  “By creating an ecosystem in which cyber threat intelligence – actionable, machine-readable information – is shared in real time and can be consumed automatically, defenders can begin to eliminate the asymmetry that currently favors attackers.

 

Last year there were more than one million phishing attacks discovered worldwide, a 65 percent increase from the previous year. Such an abundance of verified attacks presents unprecedented opportunities to share information among customers so that they can proactively defend against the same attack, should it come for them.

While there is a deficiency with information sharing in cybersecurity overall, it is particularly bad among email security vendors. Today’s buyers should demand that their email security offer real-time actionable collaboration, integrated with automated incident response, as a means to better prepare and respond to newly trending attacks before they target your employees’ inboxes.

 

An important lesson learned from the infamous WannaCry attack was that real-time global sharing of information helped drastically reduce the damages that could have been inflicted had the global community not gotten involved or so rapidly mobilized.

 

What is Federation and what makes it unique?

 

The only anonymous and global real-time phishing intelligence sharing, that is integrated with automated incident response technology.

 

What does it do?

 

As an add-on to IronTraps, companies with Federation can share important email phishing intelligence event information automatically and anonymously to ensure the same cyber-attack won’t hit any other company under IRONSCALES’ protection.

 

As a result of this collaboration among IRONSCALES users, enterprises and medium sized organizations can proactively defend their network gateways and endpoints from increasingly frequent and sophisticated email phishing attacks.

 

How does it work?

 

Upon attack identification, Federation immediately logs the attack details and cross-references all users for emails containing a similar pattern. When an attack is matched, the users are notified in real-time through in-line messaging. With this intelligence sharing, Federation then communicates immediately with IronTraps, which automatically remediates the attack without the need for employee or security team intervention. This unprecedented email phishing intelligence is proven to reduce risk from dangerous and destructive zero-day attacks, such as ransomware, malware, bots, spam, spoofing, and pharming, among others.

As an add-on to IronTraps, companies with Federation, can share important email phishing intelligence event information automatically and anonymously to ensure the same cyber attack won’t hit any other company under IRONSCALES’ protection.
Users will gain unprecedented email phishing intelligence, in real-time, on dangerous and destructive zero-day attacks, such as ransomware, malware, bots, spam, spoofing, and pharming, among others.

 

As a result of this collaboration among IRONSCALES users, enterprises and medium sized organizations can proactively defend their network gateways and endpoints from increasingly frequent and sophisticated email phishing attacks.

 

In addition to your SOC team, you now have a team of thousands of people reporting and verifying cyber attacks for you across the globe.

The following case study is just one example of the complexity of spear-phishing email design and attack technique, how swiftly phishers move from attack to attack, and how IRONSCALES’ can automatically remediate phishing and prevent repeat attacks across its clients’ networks.
