Keepnet Labs phishing reporter

It is a phishing reporter button on Microsoft Outlook’s menu bar that allows the user to turn it into action when they receive a suspicious mail. This provides SOC teams the ability to detect attacks early, mitigate impact, and block user-based attacks against malicious e-mail.

Direct benefit to email user;

  • Employees report aggressive attacks with a single click.
  • Early “Phishing” warnings are taken from users and a “sensor” network is created.
  • The user is notified of this correct action when the user clicks the “Report Phishing” (1) button in a simulated Phishing security test.
  • It allows the user to send a suspicious e-mail to analysis services and get a risk score.
  • Institution’s security culture strengthens.
  • Employees receive immediate feedback that enhances their training.

Benefits to the security operation center (SOC)

  • Unwanted e-mails can be deleted from the user’s e-mail box with information received from the command center.
  • It reports which e-mail message is in an e-mail box of users.
  • If the existing security measures are inadequate for analysis, detection and prevention, it gives the occasion to benefit from Keepnet’s phishing analysis service.
  • It provides more effective security measures with integration with third party systems (siem, firewall etc.)
