Our innovative technology stops spear phishing attacks in real time with zero impact on network performance or user experience. This API-based approach is important for several reasons:

Historical Data: Provides instant access to current and historical data. This historical data is crucial because without understanding the existing communication patterns in the company, it is impossible to detect anomalies and impersonation attempts.

The personal nature of the internal communications (“are you at your desk?”) is the weakest link in the success of these spear phishing attacks. Solutions that cannot view/analyze/understand internal communications patterns are useless against these types of attacks.
Simplified Setup and Management: Very easy to set up and has no impact on network performance.
Flexible and Comprehensive: Allows for protection across other communications platforms, such as Slack or Gmail, that cannot be monitored via a gateway.
