No Business is Without Risk

Here's the thing. Attackers target both large and small businesses. In fact, spear-phishing campaigns targeting employees increased 55% in 2015. And the last five years have shown a steady increase in attacks targeting businesses with less than 250 employees, acoording to the experts at Symantec. In other words, no business is without risk.

Email is among the most popular and pervasive tools cybercriminals use to attack businesses like yours. These targeted threats are more difficult to detect and stop than traditional malware. And conventional signature-based anti-malware tools have proven to be largely ineffective against them.

Fraudsters are using increasingly sophisticated methods to disguise malicious URL links embedded in email messages. This includes randomly redirecting links to a sequence of different destinations around the world, and adding programmed time delays. Unfortunately, these new techniques are highly effective at disguising malicious links and fooling traditional link scanning tools.

  • Block spear-phishing and targeted attacks by using Real-Time Link Following to block malicious URLs by tracking links to their final destination and analyzing them in real-time
