Protection from phishing

Social engineering is nothing new, with criminals using psychological manipulation since the days of The Trojan Horse.

The most successful and widely used form of attack in the modern day is phishing, with attackers using email to trick users into taking action. Email addresses are easily spoofed, email content appears legitimate and the user is manipulated into opening or downloading a compromised document so that a malware attack can be launched.

Defendpoint stops the attack

Be savvy to social engineering and reduce risk.

User education and training is not enough to stop a social engineering attack. Defendpoint stops malware from executing by controlling the applications that are allowed to run in your environment. By removing admin rights from all users and instead assigning them to applications, tasks and scripts, each employee has only the necessary privileges to perform their job role - without impacting productivity.
