Phishing Emulator:
Beyond Breach and Attack Simulation

Safely emulate real-time threats to find
your email security gaps.

Why Breach and Attack Simulation?

Even with all of your security controls and policies in place, you are right to wonder how effective your security stack truly is. With scamming techniques gaining complexity everyday, how do you know malware, a malicious link, or a phishing email isn’t just moments away from leaving your company vulnerable? With remote work on the rise, the increase of distracted employees and unsecured remote desktop machines make the security perimeter increasingly scattered and vulnerable to attack.

Breach and attack simulation tools help companies to find the answer to the effectiveness question by running controlled tests with simulated threats. Breach and attack simulation tools can provide valuable and actionable insights that help protect you from many different threats, including email threats.

70% of all phishing attacks now lack a malicious payload, such as a link or attachment according to Verizon Data Breach and Incident Response (DBIR) report.

How Do Breach and Attack Simulators for
Anti-Phishing Protection Work?

A small issue from an error in a piece of code to an incorrect configuration setting could leave you exposed to malware or phishing threats. Breach and attack simulation tools geared to your email security stack empower you to find gaps by simulating attacks, testing your email security, and providing actionable data to help you refine your security posture.

How Does Simulation Apply To Email Phishing Threats?

BAS tools form a solid foundation for a company to understand the most urgent security vulnerabilities and provide insight into how to prioritize your security team’s attention. Applied to email, this becomes vitally important, especially given the active and changing landscape of cyberattacks.

When looking for a BAS-type tool for email security, companies may also want to seek tools that provide continuous testing and a way to measure security controls against emerging threats.

Continuous Testing
Attackers don’t rest and neither should you. A new attack could occur at any moment, therefore, your organization needs an ongoing understanding of your security posture. As soon as a new vulnerability emerges, your team needs to know so they can launch into action to address it.

Responsive To New Attacks

Secure Email Gateways (SEGs) alone cannot keep up with the flood of ever-changing and ever more sophisticated attacks.  For the most accurate understanding of how secure you actually are, you’ll need to complement testing your email security against well-known attacks with testing against new and live attacks.

Anti- Phishing Emulation

Security teams can benefit from additional “live fire” exercises to accurately and realistically test their email defenses. A phishing emulator allows you to set up and orchestrate attacks that include malicious links and attachments, fake log-in pages, impersonation attacks, and other real-world scenarios in a predefined test setup. Other benefits include:

Move Beyond Threat Simulation
to Threat Emulation

Included with the IRONSCALES Platform, Emulator is a first-of-its-kind threat assessment tool that enables you to defend against known and emerging phishing threats vetted by security teams. By focusing on emulation over simulation, security teams can make perimeter testing as real, fast, and frequent as desired. You train and test your people to fight phishing – why shouldn’t you do the same for your technical defenses?

Now you have the ability to emulate recent, real-world phishing attacks to discover weak points and vulnerabilities within your existing email security infrastructure. Emulator exposes holes at the SEG level with both unmodified, signature and  non-signature-based attacks – all within a safely contained designated mailbox.
