Phishing is the top cyber threat faced by organizations. Cybercriminal, hacktivist, and nation-state threat actors use phishing as an entry-point to steal credentials and install malware.

PhishLabs services combine proprietary technology, human expertise, and global threat intelligence to stop cybercrime attacks before they impact client organizations. In 2015, PhishLabs analyzed more than one million confirmed malicious phishing attacks. The company currently investigates and mitigates more than 9,000 phishing attacks every month, identifying the underlying infrastructure used in these attacks and shutting them down.
