3 Benefits of Streamlined Email Reporting and Analysis for Users and Infosec Teams
1. Keeping Users Engaged and Alert
When users are aware of their important role in security and can easily report suspected phishing, it lets them put anti-phishing training into practice and keeps their skills fresh. PhishAlarm allows you to acknowledge the value of these actions via a thank-you email or pop-up message, which is a great way to build user confidence and offer positive reinforcement.
2. Measuring the Effectiveness of Security Awareness Training
An increase in email reporting indicates that users are being more diligent about the email they receive, and more thoughtful about the actions they’re taking. With PhishAlarm, you can easily track reporting metrics, which gives you an additional way to measure effectiveness and demonstrate ROI.
3. Reducing the Window of Active Phishing Attacks
While many other providers only offer simple reporting buttons, we go beyond by delivering valuable threat intelligence that helps infosec teams focus on the emails that are most likely to be phish. A time-saving tool, PhishAlarm Analyzer automatically prioritizes reported emails, filtering out whitelisted email addresses, system notifications, and simulated phishing attacks.
PhishAlarm and PhishAlarm Analyzer are also core components of our integrated Closed-Loop Email Analysis and Response (CLEAR) solution. CLEAR further streamlines reporting and remediation, reducing the time needed to neutralize an active threat from days to minutes. Once reported messages are analyzed against multiple intelligence and reputation systems, malicious emails can be deleted or quarantined with a single click.
