Lastline and PhishMe Integrate Solutions to Combat Phishing Attacks
Industry Leaders Team to Elevate Enterprise Phishing Detection and Response
REDWOOD CITY, CA — September 21, 2016 — Lastline Inc., a leader in advanced malware detection and protection, has teamed up with PhishMe, the leading provider of human-phishing defense solutions, to strengthen enterprise defenses against data breaches.
With more than 90 percent of data breaches having a root cause attributed to phishing, organizations need to adopt an integrated product approach to thwarting cyber-attacks. Such an approach includes vigilance against the increasingly clever and creative spear phishing attempts, while at the same time maintaining constant network surveillance of program behaviors profiling evasive malware.
When installed within the same enterprise environment, PhishMe Triage automates the prioritization, analysis, and response to phishing threats identified and reported by employees that bypass email security technologies. Triage then sends specific email payloads to Lastline for in-depth behavioral observation. Malware identification by PhishMe, together with Lastline, can be streamlined and incorporated into the security team’s workflow to alert parties to take decisive action.
“We are seeing geometric growth of malware variants and behavioral routines through the Lastline real-time malware Knowledge Base. To this day, the most popular method to initially seed advanced malware remains the now-proven phishing attack,” explained Brian Laing, Vice President, Product & Business Development at Lastline.
“We are pleased to offer better integration with PhishMe Triage to offer joint customers the very best chance of success against these separate, but related cyber threats, spear phishing and evasive malware,” said Laing.
