The Typology of Phishing Attacks
880 million phishing emails detected in 2018
Phishing emails are designed to look like they were sent from familiar brands such as banks or cloud services like Netflix, Dropbox or Microsoft 365. After clicking on a phishing link, victims are directed to replica webpages where they are instructed to change or update a password or update personally identifiable or financial information. The average user is totally unaware that they’ve been phished until the business recognizes the breach.
AI-based Phishing Protection
Traditional email filters are designed to identify known threats—which has prompted phishers to use a variety of obfuscation techniques to successfully bypass these products. Vade Secure’s Anti-Phishing Solution uses artificial intelligence, including machine learning, to perform real-time behavioral analysis of the origin, content, and context of the email.
