It’s never been easier to connect and communicate with the world. Enterprises do everything online, across all kinds of digital platforms outside of the network. Social media, web, email, mobile apps, SMS, etc… With all of that exposure, it’s also never been easier for bad actors to attack your employees, customers, and brands. And when they do, you find you don’t have the power to stop it.
PhishLabs helps you solve this problem. We provide external threat intelligence, incident response, and security awareness training services that mitigate digital risks and give you control you need to protect your enterprise, customers, and brands.
How It All Started
It all started when a security engineer-turned-product manager at a leading brand monitoring company realized that their services weren’t effective at stopping phishing attacks. They’d take phishing sites down, only to see new attacks pop right up elsewhere.
Frustrated by this never-ending game of whack-a-mole, he decided to take a different approach. Instead of mindlessly chasing site after site, he wanted to analyze these sites while they were being taken down to collect intelligence about how they worked.
This proved to be a game-changer. By identifying which kits were being used, where credentials were being sent, how the sites were hosted, etc. he was able to find additional points of leverage and turn the tables. Now, he was able to go after the bad guys’ infrastructure and disrupt their activity.
Thus, PhishLabs was born.
Since then, PhishLabs has grown and extended our capabilities to include broader external threat intelligence, incident response, and security awareness training services. But our approach has stayed the same. We don’t settle for whack-a-mole. We use intelligence, innovation, and hard work to turn the tables and help enterprises take control of threats outside their network.
And what happened to our fearless product manager? He is our founder and CTO, John LaCour.
