The Challenges:

94% of Breaches are Due to Phishing Attacks

When email gateway detection results are inconclusive, a small percentage of malicious and damaging emails still manage to get through into the enterprise. In large Enterprises with hundreds or even thousands of mailbox recipients, the number of potentially harmful phishing attacks reported by end-users can quickly reach unmanageable quantities.

The Solution:

User-Reported Phishing Strengthens Detection

VMRay’s Abuse Mailbox enables SOC teams to create a dedicated mailbox hosted by VMRay, allowing each organization’s employees to become part of the “detection fabric” of the enterprise.

End-user education has become an invaluable resource for helping to spot new and previously unseen phishing campaigns and malicious email threats.
User-reported phishing leverages the human element to bridge the gap left by the failure of point phishing solutions to identify advanced email attacks.
Via an Outlook plugin, any suspicious emails can be sent to VMRay by the end-user for a deep, third-party assessment with safe detonation and rapid analysis without direct involvement of scarce SOC resources.
When orchestrated using a SOAR Playbook, a primary phishing solution can flag “suspicious” emails and automatically forward them via the SOAR to VMRay for further investigation and deeper analysis.

The Benefits:

Minimize The Risk of Advanced Phishing Attacks

VMRay’s safe detonation and Machine Learning (ML) driven phishing analysis provides a definitive verdict with greater visibility into an email’s malicious actions.
