Cofense: Stop Phishing Emails Before They Do Their Damage

The Cofense website has this startling statistic: 90% of security breaches start with an email phishing attempt. That should make you sit up and take notice.

In this “Spotlight Series” video, ActualTech Media Partner David Davis chats with Keith Ibarguen, chief product officer, Cofense, about ways to stop those attacks in their tracks.

“We use people and technology together to stay ahead of this phishing threat,” Ibarguen says.

Cofense starts with crowdsourced data about phishing attempts that it analyzes and distributes into the ecosystem to proactively stop attacks.

The Cofense system collects phishing attack signatures, and their AI spots compromise indicators. When a potentially harmful phishing attempt is made, that email is quarantined so it doesn’t harm your company. It’s proactive protection worth your time to investigate.
