Federation will provide an unprecedented level of collaboration, without sacrificing speed or anonymity, that can truly make it proficient for companies to proactively defend against phishing attacks

IRONSCALES, the first and only multi-layered phishing mitigation solution to combine human intelligence with machine learning, today announced the launch of Federation; a product that will automatically and anonymously share phishing attack intelligence with enterprises and organizations worldwide. With Federation, IRONSCALES users will gain unprecedented intelligence, in real-time, on dangerous and destructive zero-day attacks, such as ransomware, malware, bots, spam, spoofing, and pharming, among others. As a result of this collaboration among IRONSCALES users, enterprises and organizations can proactively defend their network gateways and endpoints from increasingly frequent and sophisticated phishing attacks.

“Instantaneous sharing of phishing attack intelligence will make it substantially easier for enterprises and organizations to consistently remain secure and in control," said Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO of IRONSCALES. “Federation will provide an unprecedented level of collaboration, without sacrificing speed or anonymity, that can truly make it proficient for companies to proactively defend against phishing attacks.”

IRONSCALES’ employee-based intrusion prevention system is the first phishing solution with an automatic one-click mitigation response. This unique functionality makes it possible for IRONSCALES to expedite the time from attack to remediation from weeks to seconds, without ever needing the SOC team's involvement. With Federation, all IRONSCALES users, even those without in-house security analysts, can better prepare for phishing attacks because of its real-time intelligence sharing.

How IRONSCALES Defends the Enterprise
IRONSCALES first challenges all users with a series of staged, real-world email attacks in order to evaluate their individual level of awareness. Based on an analysis of performance, a tailored phishing training campaign, using advanced simulation and gamification, is created to maximize individual awareness and responsiveness to social engineering techniques.

Once trained, vigilant employees, upon suspicion of a phishing attack, can trigger a real-time or automated forensic review through the click of just one button, without requiring active SOC team participation. Within minutes, forensics is completed, and an intrusion signature is sent directly to both endpoints, email servers and the SIEM, which then triggers an immediate enterprise-wide automatic mitigation response, such as quarantines, disabling of links and attachments, and even permanent removal of email, protecting the entire organization from the attack. Important event information is then automatically and anonymously shared via Federation to ensure the same attack won’t hit any other company under IRONSCALES protection.

IRONSCALES was founded by a team of security researchers, IT and penetration testing experts, as well as specialists in the field of effective interactive training, in response to the increasing phishing epidemic that today costs companies millions of dollars annually. The company is headquartered in Raanana, Israel, and was incubated in the 8200 EISP, the top program for cyber security ventures, founded by alumni of the Israel Defense Forces’ elite Intelligence Technology unit.
