In less than 300 words, summarize the most important features and benefits of this product or service
Today’s email security solutions are highly vulnerable to targeted spear phishing attacks. This is because existing email security products are largely based on reputation, that is whether an email link is know to be “good” or “bad.” A link’s reputation is determined via 3rd party data feeds or internally by way of large-scale email traffic and data analysis. In the case of spear phishing attacks, which target specific individuals within an organization, the email link is usually unique, as is the target user, hence there is no 3rd party reputation data available, nor is there enough data to analyze internally to make an accurate determination. If the determination is incorrect, users are sent directly to a site where credentials can be stolen, or malware can be downloaded to an endpoint. A single error can facilitate a pervasive attack that can cause billions of dollars of damage. Menlo Security solves the targeted spear phishing problem conclusively.
