PhishMe has announced it has opened a new London Phishing Defence Centre to provide local clients with increased levels of support, including dedicated professional services to help them automate and orchestrate their phishing response programs and take full advantage of PhishMe Triage™ and PhishMe Intelligence™.
PhishMe has already opened regional support centers in other worldwide locations to improve support. In addition to the London center, PhishMe now has satellite offices in Australia, Dubai, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore. The ability to provide dedicated, local support in these key regions, along with the quality and effectiveness of its security awareness training and phishing simulation platform, has seen its market share in these regions grow considerably.
PhishMe already had a London office and European headquarters which was expanded earlier in the year. PhishMe now employs 40 staff members at the office, including a team of analysts that are constantly tracking and assessing the latest phishing and malware threats.
While organizations usually have defenses in place to block the majority of phishing threats, many phishing emails slip through the net and are delivered to end users’ inboxes. When these phishing emails are reported via the PhishMe platform, the company’s malware analysts perform in-depth analyses of the threats. When new phishing threats are identified, the analysts rapidly operationalize incident response processes and distribute intelligence, including indicators of compromise, to its customers via the PhishMe Intelligence™ service.
PhishMe also distributes weekly Intelligence Strategic Analysis threat alerts to all customers to raise awareness of new malware, phishing methods and the changing tactics of cybercriminals. PhishMe reports that this approach has worked well in the United States and is being replicated in the UK and Europe.
PhishMe CEO Rohyt Belani said, “Phishing remains the number one attack vector used by malicious actors across the world,” going on to explain, “We’ve launched our PDC in London to help our growing base of British and European customers combat this burgeoning threat by providing rapid response capabilities that are tailored for the region.”
