“The proliferation of phishing websites is just one of many examples of how attackers are constantly in search of new ways to stay ahead of defenders.”
TEL AVIV, Israel (PRWEB) March 26, 2019
IRONSCALES, the world’s first automated phishing prevention, detection and response platform, today announced the ability of its anti-phishing technology to prevent phishing attacks masquerading as fake login pages designed to steal user credentials. In December 2018, IRONSCALES added new mailbox-level advanced malware and malicious URL detection to its email security platform. Today’s announcement bolsters those capabilities by providing even more continuous inbound protection for phishing emails designed to defeat sandbox and signature detections.
Last August, the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) detected a 46 percent increase in unique phishing websites totaling more than 263,538. Accordingly, these malicious websites have emerged as a major threat vector acting as a catalyst for account takeover, credential theft and access to personally identifiable information (PII). To reduce the risk of phishing attacks using fake login pages targeting businesses, IRONSCALES has bolstered its platform’s prevention layer and adaptive self-learning AI and machine learning models to automatically detect new phishing sites in near real-time.
“The proliferation of phishing websites is just one of many examples of how attackers are constantly in search of new ways to stay ahead of defenders,” said Eyal Benishti, IRONSCALES founder & CEO. “The ability of our advanced phishing threat protection platform to now proactively determine whether or not a login page is legitimate and to automatically block URLs when verified as malicious is another example of how our technology is built to drastically reduce employee risk as well as security team workload burden.”
Utilizing advanced deep learning algorithms and computer vision to detect in real-time visual deviations and determine whether or not a login page is legitimate, IRONSCALES will now automatically block access to the verified malicious URLs while simultaneously decentralizing the threat intelligence by sharing information with open source anti phishing websites. Currently, IRONSCALES has visibility into 250 of the world’s most popular brands, with thousands more to be added over the next few months. IRONSCALES will announce additional protections for credential theft phishing attacks in the coming months.
IRONSCALES multi-layered advanced phishing threat protection platform combines technical controls to block as many phishing attacks as possible and end-user controls to help users detect more sophisticated attacks at the mailbox-level, while incorporating employees as part of the defense strategy to detect what is missed by technology. Its adaptive platform uniquely combines human intelligence with machine learning and AI to automatically prevent, detect and respond to advanced email threats and predict future attacks, so if one control fails, there are others to compensate while maintaining an adaptive security architecture.

IRONSCALES is the leader in anti-email phishing technologies. Using a multi-layered and automated approach starting at the mailbox-level to prevent, detect and respond to today’s sophisticated email phishing attacks, IRONSCALES expedites the time from phishing attack discovery to enterprise-wide remediation, reducing the time from detection to response from hours or days to just seconds or minutes, by significantly reducing the workload on incident responders. Headquartered in Tel Aviv, 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 phishing epidemic that today costs companies millions of dollars annually. It was incubated at the 8200 EISP, the top program for cyber security ventures, founded by alumni of the Israel Defense Forces’ elite Intelligence Technology unit.
