“Top Notch Security Awareness/Training and Phish Simulation Platform: It’s great to have integration between users phishing submissions, automatic sandbox evaluation and the training platform. We were doing this with a different product previously and now that we are on one platform, we have streamlined our support and reporting process.”
Kevin N, Administrator, Enterprise Customer
“Hands down the best email protection platform I’ve had the pleasure of using: Automatic triaging and filtering of emails for malicious content both inbound and outbound. Before the platform was installed, we would have responded and remediated several business email compromised (BEC) accounts per month, since we've integrated Proofpoint over 2 years ago there was an immediate reduction of 95% in BEC, and none in the last 8 months.”
Administrator, Enterprise Manufacturing Organisation
“Threat Response Auto-Pull has given peace of mind: It automatically pulls the message from users mailboxes when it determines a message contained a malicious URL or attachment. I can also issue a manual pull, which has been very helpful when an occasional spam message makes it way to a large number of users. It's prevented multiple phishing attacks. Saved business time by taking automatic corrective action. And it takes corrective action at night, on the weekend, holidays, with no user intervention.”
Nick L, Administrator, Enterprise Organisation
Increased Visibility into Threats
Proofpoint has over 100,000 customers with visibility across multiple vectors such as email, cloud, network and social. This gives us unique insight into the threat landscape by correlating threats from various vectors to increase the effectiveness of our advanced email security. We use this visibility to protect against phishing by constantly monitoring and blocking more threats from ever getting to your people in the first place.
Increased Visibility into User Risk
Sending simulated phish to gauge user risk is great, but it’s only one side of the coin. Phishing prevention begins with being able to see which users are being targeted by real attacks. It’s not just who is vulnerable to an attack, it’s who is being targeted that you need to focus on. Our unmatched visibility into threats targeting your people provides targeted training to the users who need it most – helping you boost phishing protection, reduce risk faster and run a more targeted, time-efficient program.
Increased Behaviour Change
We don’t view education as a checkbox, but as a critical tool. Our hundreds of diverse, multinational, and customisation training modules and awareness materials are designed to drive impactful behaviour change while ensuring compliance and minimising user downtime. Our investment in continuing to develop our content library is always growing as demonstrated by our acquisition of The Defence Works and partnership with TeachPrivacy.
Increase in User Emails Reported
When you educate your users to spot phishing emails, they become part of your line of defence. And email warning tags allow them to report on suspicious emails more easily by responding directly from the tag. They can receive nudges if the message is from an external sender, potentially an impostor, or impersonating a domain. This makes it easier for users to rethink engaging with potentially suspicious messages.
Increase Automated Abuse Mailbox Remediation
Abuse mailboxes can drain time for already over-burdened incident response teams. Proofpoint’s Closed-Loop Email Analysis and Response (CLEAR) solution automates the entire process, from users reporting emails to malicious messages being removed automatically. No YARA rules to configure, no sandbox or threat intelligence to purchase. Everything’s included with CLEAR.
How to report phishing emails?
If you think you’re the target of a phishing campaign, the first step is to report it to the right people. On a corporate network, it’s best to report it to IT staff so that they can review the message to determine if it’s a targeted campaign. For individuals, you can report fraud and phishing to the FTC.
What is trap phishing?
Phishing has many forms, but one effective way to trick people into falling for fraud is to pretend to be a sender from a legitimate organisation. A phishing trap lures users to a malicious website using familiar business references and using the design from a site that has the same logo, designs, and interface as a bank, ecommerce, or other popular brand that a targeted user would recognise. This is also known as a Watering Hole attack.
What is barrel phishing?
To avoid filters, an attacker might send an initial benign-looking email to establish trust first, and then send a second email with a link or request for sensitive information. Barrel phishing takes more effort from the attacker, but the effect can be more damaging as targeted users feel that they can trust the email sender.
How to spot a phishing email?
The main goal of phishing is to steal credentials (credential phishing), sensitive information, or trick individuals into sending money. Always be wary of messages that ask for sensitive information or provide a link where you immediately need to authenticate.
