KnowBe4 Adds Feature To Its Anti-Phishing Platform

Security firm KnowBe4 has launched a service to help security teams move more quickly to protect their firms against email threats.

The new tool, PhishRIP, is part of the firm’s PhishER product, and is included with a subscription to the latter.

Clients can report suspicious emails by using the Phish Alert Button (PAB), which sends those messages to PhishER, where they are classified as clean, spam or a threat. The threatening emails can then be quarantined.

The new tool is designed to make “targeting large phishing campaigns much easier by identifying and removing suspicious emails from users' inboxes, even if they haven't been reported through the use of the PAB,” states Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4.

The firm cites Mimecast research showing that filters are missing 12% of unwanted emails.

Sjouwerman says: "No matter what percentage of malicious emails get through to users' inboxes, you have to remember that it only takes one wrong click to potentially compromise an entire organization."
