Phishing is the primary means attackers gain access to your organisation’s network and corporate data. It is relatively easy to fool an end user into clicking on a link, which can lead to malicious websites or downloads. Lookout-exclusive data indicates that up to 25% of employees are fooled into clicking links during phishing tests. Many organisations have already invested in email security protections and spam filters, supplemented by additional perimeter provisions such as firewalls and secure web gateways. However this is increasingly inadequate as employees move outside the perimeter and use other apps, both personal and corporate, for data access and communications.
The Lookout artificial intelligence detection engine proactively determines the reputation of sites on the Internet. With an always-on approach, Lookout Phishing AI detects phishing kits as they are being built, before any user is targeted and an attack is executed. We share select findings with the world here @PhishingAI.
Lookout alerts users to phishing attempts from any source including:
Lookout inspects all outbound connections across all apps when a user connects, without inspecting the content and without violating end-user privacy.
Lookout’s AI-based phishing detection engine discovers phishing sites early in the attack lifecycle - before the attacker can target users
Protects employees as they bypass today's perimeter controls due to mobility and adoption of cloud services
A powerful line of defence against phishing attacks across personal email, texts, messaging platforms and apps all at scale
Lookout does not rely on inspecting message content, and therefore does not violate end user privacy
Mobile is one of the most prevalent mobile vectors used by attackers to exfiltrate enterprise data
Mobile devices operate outside traditional firewalls, typically lack endpoint security solutions, and access a plethora of new messaging platforms not used on desktops. Additionally, the mobile user interface does not have the depth of detail users need to identify phishing attacks, such as hovering over hyperlinks to show the destination. All this, along with the huge amount of personal data on mobile devices, is making these devices the preferred target for phishing attacks.
