Because phishing attacks are proliferating in complexity and frequency, in addition to the risk of human error and an increasingly overburdened SOC teams, now is the time for enterprises to supplement their phishing security with real-time automation.
Raanana, Israel (PRWEB) November 15, 2016
IRONSCALES, the first and only automated email phishing response solution to combine human intelligence with machine learning, today announced the release of its newest whitepaper, “Combatting Modern Email Phishing Attacks: The Power of Incorporating Machine Learning into a Phishing Mitigation Approach.” The whitepaper is available for free download by visiting: https://ironscales.com/combatting-email-phishing-attacks/.
Around the world, phishing attacks, including those with ransomware, malware, bots, spam, spoofing, and pharming within, have evolved from a matter-of-fact nuisance into an epidemic in which enterprises, on average, spend $4 million per event to remediate. Perpetrated by every type of cyber criminal, from nation state threat actors and hacktivists to script-kiddies and fraudsters, phishing now accounts for 95 percent of all successful cyber attacks worldwide, despite companies spending millions to educate employees on how to identify and report attacks.
“The most common method of preventing successful phishing attacks to date has been employee education,” said Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO. “Because phishing attacks are proliferating in complexity and frequency, in addition to the risk of human error and an increasingly overburdened SOC teams, now is the time for enterprises to supplement their phishing security with real-time automation.”
Combatting Modern Email Phishing Attacks
While employee training still plays a role in phishing mitigation, recent events have proven it’s not an effective solution on its own. In this whitepaper, IRONSCALES explains:
- The evolution of phishing from hit-or-miss scams by amateur hackers to highly-targeted and sophisticated attacks by professional cyber criminals and its impact on the enterprise.
- The current phishing mitigation approach and why relying solely on human intelligence is insufficient at best.
- How machine learning can expedite the time from attack to remediation from several weeks to just minutes and reduce the risk of falling victim altogether.
- The value of enterprises coming together to combat phishing attacks through sharing threat intelligence through automation.

IRONSCALES is the first and only automated email phishing response solution to combine human intelligence with machine learning. Its employee-based intrusion prevention system is the first phishing solution with an automatic one-click response, which expedites the time from phishing attack to remediation from weeks to seconds, without ever needing the SOC team's involvement. Headquartered in Raanana, Israel, 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. It 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.
