Spear Phishing and Whaling
The Phishing, Spear Phishing and Whaling Attack Challenge
Phishing is one of the oldest tricks in the attacker’s playbook: an attack that leverages social engineering to obtain sensitive information. Phishing, spear phishing, and whaling attacks leverage URLs, files, and text-based techniques to deceive their target and gain access.
Many phishing attacks penetrate existing security measures due to the rapid creation of new variations and their resemblance to the “real-thing” becoming more and more accurate. Employees simply don’t have the time to analyze every individual email they receive.
The Phishing, Spear Phishing and Whaling Cyber Kill Chain
The attacker gathers intelligence on the target, including personnel and technology data.
The attacker chooses the best way to get in the organization, such as favorite payload or most exposed channel.
The attacker creates the “story” of the attack – for example, designing the message, writing a cover text, setting up the link, and more.
The attacker logs the information gathered from the attack and validates the information by trying to log in using the target’s information.
The attacker leverages the log-in details to steal money, steal information or even sell the log-in credentials themselves to other parties.
Our Anti-phishing Technology
Perception Point has combined multiple layers of anti-phishing prevention, including propriety engines developed specifically to outsmart any advanced phishing attempts, and keep pace with the latest techniques:
Unpacks the most deeply embedded phishing attacks, even if highly concealed by the attacker.
Proprietary engine uses several advanced image recognition algorithms to validate if any URL is a legitimate site.
Incorporates data from the four top URL reputation engines monitoring global traffic for phishing attempts.
Combines six different market-leading sources that leverage intelligence from external security vendors and the cyber community.
#1 in Detection
Next-gen capabilities provide the best coverage against any type of phishing attack. We actively scan all URLs received to ensure they are safe.
We uncover each and every file, URL, or hidden code, even if highly concealed or stored on a cloud storage platform, rendering advanced evasion techniques useless.
Holistic Coverage (Across Channels)
The anti-phishing engines are deployed across all channels we cover, providing equal protection against phishing – whether you are on email, in a messaging app, or cloud storage platforms.
All our solutions are deployed in a few clicks, creating zero fuss to you and your IT team.
Our Incident Response team checks and monitors every incident to ensure the most accurate detection rates, and to reduce strain on your SOC team.
