Anti Phishing - How to safeguard against Phishing
Safeguard Against Phishing and Impersonation Attacks with Guardian Digital EnGarde Cloud Email Security
As phishing, spear phishing and whaling attacks become increasingly sophisticated and problematic for organizations, anti-phishing software has become a critical piece of technology for businesses in all industries. Over 95% of cyber attacks on enterprise networks - which often result in significant downtime, financial loss and serious reputation damage - begin with a spear phishing email. Implementing anti-phishing protection as part of an all-in-one, cloud-based security platform is the most effective way to defend against phishing attacks.
What is Phishing and How Does It Work?
Phishing, which has dominated the email threat landscape for over two decades, is a popular email scam in which cyber criminals send malicious emails designed to trick users into giving up sensitive credentials or downloading malware onto their computer. Phishing campaigns often employ social engineering, or techniques used to manipulate psychology. These scams usually encourage recipients to act rapidly, without stopping to think things through before interacting with a fraudulent email they have received. In highly targeted spear phishing campaigns, attackers go after specific individuals, using information gathered through research to pose a someone that person knows and trusts.
Because phishing scams exploit user behavior, traditional anti-phishing programs often involve user training and education. However, human behavior is ultimately unpredictable, and security awareness training alone is not enough to safeguard against phishing and other email-borne attacks. Ensuring that effective anti-phishing protection is in place is imperative in safeguarding your users, your key assets and your brand.
