PhishAlarm Product Update: Extended Support for Mobile Email Reporting

With the proliferation of smart devices and BYOD work environments, organizations have increasingly mobile workforces. Recent research indicates that more than half of all emails are opened on mobile devices — which means that end users are definitely encountering phishing messages on their smartphones and tablets. We recognize the need to allow users to report suspicious emails from all the devices they use, and the latest update to our PhishAlarm® email reporting button extends our email client support to include Microsoft Outlook Mobile for iOS and Android.

The PhishAlarm button provides an excellent way to keep phishing prevention top-of-mind for your end users and to reinforce key lessons and best practices learned during security awareness training sessions. Reporting is quick and easy: Users simply click the PhishAlarm button; header information and other details are captured automatically, and the message is forwarded to the inbox(es) of your choice. Plus, there is an added bonus for infosec teams: By engaging users and making them part of your last line of defense, their actions can help reduce the duration and impact of an active phishing attack within your network.

The addition of Microsoft Outlook Mobile rounds out a comprehensive range of desktop, web, and mobile email client support:

  • Microsoft Outlook for Windows (2010, 2013, 2016)
  • Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac
  • Browser-based Office 365 and Gmail email clients
  • Outlook Web Access (OWA) for iPhone/iPad and Android
  • Outlook Mobile for iOS and Android
