CHARLESTON, SC – February 2, 2016 – PhishLabs, the leading provider of 24/7 phishing defense and intelligence solutions, today announced general availability of T2 Spear Phishing Protection, the first solution in the industry using intelligence from real-world phishing attacks to train employees, analyze attacks, fight back against threats, and prevent data breaches. The company will spotlight T2 Spear Phishing Protection at RSA Conference 2016, one of the cybersecurity industry’s marquee events, Feb. 29 – March 4, at the Moscone Center’s North Hall (Booth 3485) in San Francisco.
“We investigate and fight back against more than 6,000 phishing attacks every month, giving us deep insight into the tradecraft and infrastructure used by threat actors to compromise organizations,” said PhishLabs Founder and CEO John LaCour. “With this intelligence, we’re able to prepare organizations for the real-world attacks they are most likely to face, and mitigate those threats before their business is impacted.”
T2 Spear Phishing Protection is an end-to-end solution consisting of three services:
T2 Employee Defense Training and T2 Analysis and Mitigation services are currently available. T2 Threat Intelligence will be generally available in early Q2 of 2016. These services integrate tightly to provide comprehensive, end-to-end protection against phishing attacks. They may also be used separately and alongside existing cyber defenses organizations already have in place.
“What PhishLabs is doing to solve the phishing problem – combining awareness training, 24/7 threat analysis, and threat intelligence – is brilliant and can serve as a powerful security asset,” said Richard Stiennon, Chief Industry Analyst at IT-Harvest.
By delivering these three capabilities in an integrated solution that is driven by PhishLabs’ unique intelligence, T2 Spear Phishing Protection goes well beyond phishing simulation and awareness training products to reduce the risk posed by phishing attacks. The services are supported by experts that fight back against phishing every day. These experts partner with our clients and serve as extensions of their security teams to transform how they prevent, detect and respond to targeted phishing attacks.
T2 Employee Defense Training is a fully managed phishing simulation and training service delivered by PhishLabs experts. The service uses real-world phishing content to condition employees for attacks that pose the greatest risk to the organization. Employees are trained and enabled to report phishing attacks immediately via an easy-to-use email plug-in, providing visibility into active attacks targeting employees.
T2 Analysis and Mitigation delivers expert analysis and response to reported attacks. PhishLabs is home to the industry’s only 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) that specializes in analyzing and mitigating spear phishing attacks. When a threat is identified, the SOC performs deep attack analysis to extract threat indicators and establish threat context; PhishLabs experts then take rapid action to mitigate the threat.
T2 Threat Intelligence is an automated, machine-readable feed of threat information gathered from across PhishLabs’ client base and research operations. It includes threat indicators from spear phishing attacks and advanced tradecraft analyzed by PhishLabs experts. Organizations can use this STIX-compliant intelligence to enrich their security infrastructure, proactively block attacks, and improve their resiliency against advanced threats.
