Even with advanced email protection tools, a small percentage of malicious messages still end up in users’ inboxes. Our PhishAlarm® phishing button empowers users to report phishing emails and other suspicious messages with one mouse click, and PhishAlarm® Analyzer helps response teams identify and remediate the most pressing threats. Both tools are integral to Proofpoint’s innovative Closed-Loop Email Analysis and Response (CLEAR) solution.
PhishAlarm and PhishAlarm Analyzer Features and Benefits
A User-Friendly Phishing Button
Knowledgeable users are key to identifying—and stopping—phishing attacks that slip through perimeter technology. A simple but effective email client add-in, PhishAlarm makes it easy for your users to report phishing, dramatically reducing the duration and impact of an active phishing attack. A valuable addition to security awareness training, PhishAlarm also reinforces positive behavior by immediately thanking users (via a pop-up message or email) for reporting suspicious emails.
Time-Saving Threat Prioritization
A companion to PhishAlarm, PhishAlarm Analyzer provides a real-time ranking of reported emails in order of threat potential, allowing your response team to save time by focusing on the most imminent and dangerous threats within your network. While other tools rank reported messages based on the users’ level of “trustworthiness” and “accuracy,” PhishAlarm Analyzer classifies an email’s content using standard security indicators of compromise (IOCs), taking into account known threat vectors obtained from established databases and technical resources.
Allows users to report phish without having to capture header information or technical details.

Allows for whitelisting, phishing button customization, and tailored system and forwarding actions.
Automatically prioritizes reported messages as “Likely a Phish,” “Suspicious,” and “Unlikely a Phish.”
