Attackers hook nearly all phishing victims within mere minutes after the first user opens and clicks on a malicious email, attachment, or URL, then shutting down the phishing site URL and moving on after a few hours. With so much at stake, successful protection of an organisation’s employees against the variety of different phishing scams require a high-speed, highly automated approach.
When it comes to defence against phishing attacks, the race against time matters because users are quick to open and click on these attacks. Security tools for email and web browsers are designed to provide protections against the majority of common and known phishing attacks and malware but given the reality of sophisticated socially engineered phishing threats that continue to evolve and fast user time-to-click behaviours, most current security protections are too slow to be effective against zero-hour threats.
