In this explanatory article, we discuss spear phishing. The article details why it's so dangerous; how it works; and some of the best ways to protect against this attack form. 



The Static Expressway: How Hackers Leverage Legitimate Websites to Bypass SEGs and Microsoft

Secure Email Gateways and Microsoft rely on rules and static lists to block or allow email content. These allow lists can’t block legitimate sites like Google, so hackers have responded by leveraging legitimate websites to host phishing and malicious content. That means that more attacks are reaching end-users. In this whitepaper, you'll learn how the "Static Expressway" makes your enterprise less secure, and why advanced AI is required to stop these attacks.
