Wombat Security Releases PhishAlarm Analyzer
The platform scans reported emails and examines them based on standard security indicators of compromise, and the emails are then prioritized.Security specialist Wombat launched PhishAlarm Analyzer, a software-based email phishing triage solution that uses machine learning to check emails against multiple security sources to identify and prioritize reported phishing emails for incident response teams. Rapid identification and categorization allows information security officers and security response teams to isolate and remediate suspected phishing messages, including zero-hour attacks. The platform scans reported emails and examines them based on standard security indicators of compromise, and the emails are then prioritized, and an HTML research report on the reported email is delivered to the incident response teams. The research report is designed to save time for the incident response team by performing much of the research in advance so that they respond more quickly to the reported threats.
"We saw the need for additional analysis and categorization of reported emails—almost a second filter, if you will," Al Himler, senior director of product management at Wombat, told eWEEK. "We found it to be a natural add-on to our PhishAlarm email reporting button and an excellent opportunity to improve the identification and remediation process. Clearly, not every reported email has the same threat level; but without additional intelligence, there's no way for information security officers and security response teams to prioritize the reports without doing a good deal of research and legwork."
