CHARLESTON, SC – June 14, 2016 – PhishLabs, the leading provider of 24/7 cybersecurity services that protect against the exploitation of people, today announced general availability of its T2 Threat Intelligence service. Aimed at helping organizations proactively protect against targeted threats, including spear phishing attacks that go undetected by security technologies, T2 Threat Intelligence is an integral part of PhishLabs’ end-to-end T2 Spear Phishing Protection solution aimed at thwarting and mitigating targeted phishing attacks.
“Phishing continues to be the most successful method used by attackers to penetrate cyber defenses,” said John LaCour, Founder and CEO of PhishLabs. “With real-time intelligence into spear phishing campaigns, organizations can get ahead of this threat and proactively minimize their exposure.”

T2 Threat Intelligence is comprised of near real-time intelligence gathered from expert investigations into active spear phishing campaigns, alerting defenders to these threat indicators far in advance of other intelligence sources. Verified through a combination of automated and human analysis, T2 Threat Intelligence can be aggressively applied to detect and block threats with an extremely low false positive risk. Featuring full compatibility with standards for automated threat intelligence sharing, such as STIX/TAXII, T2 Threat Intelligence can be readily applied to email, network, and security analytics technologies for enhanced threat context and prevention.
T2 Threat Intelligence is the third part of PhishLabs’ T2 Spear Phishing Protection offering, which is the industry’s only end-to-end solution that enlists employees in a world-class operational process that is proven to prevent, detect, and mitigate targeted phishing attacks. T2 Employee Defense Training and T2 Analysis & Mitigation services are also part of the overall T2 Spear Phishing Protection solution.
“Spear phishing is a huge problem because the attacks focus on the exploitation of people rather than technology,” said James Brooks, Senior Director of Product Management. “With the capabilities PhishLabs offers, organizations can turn weakness into strength by fully activating their ‘human layer of security’ and seamlessly incorporating it into their security operations and incident response process.”

- Trains employees to recognize and report real-world spear phishing attacks (T2 Employee Defense Training)
