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 constantly monitor and block more threats from ever getting to your people in the first place.

Increased Visibility Into User Risk

Sending simulated phishing emails to gauge user risk is great, but it’s only one side of the coin. Being able to see which users are being targeted by real attacks offers additional insight. 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 reduce risk faster and run a more targeted, time-efficient programme.

Increased Behaviour Change

We don’t view education as a checkbox, but as a critical tool. Our hundreds of diverse, multinational, and customisable training modules and awareness materials are designed to drive impactful behaviour change while ensuring compliance and minimizing 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 anti-phishing solution. Email warning tags allow them to report 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.

Phishing FAQs

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, e-commerce, or other popular brands that a targeted user would recognise. This is also known as a Watering Hole attack.

What Is Barrel Phishing?

To avoid email 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) and 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.
