PhishRIP better protects users against suspicious email content
KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has expanded the scope of its PhishRIP feature, making it newly available on G Suite software. PhishRIP is a PhishER email quarantine feature that helps remove, inoculate and protect against email threats faster.
This new feature is another line of defense against malicious emails. Technical controls are unreliable when it comes to filtering out malicious emails that come into a user’s inbox, as they do not catch everything. Mimecast notes filters are missing 12% of unwanted emails.
This email defense line is now one element stronger, as PhishRIP secondly reviews user-reported messages by searching and optionally quarantining other similar messages across all users’ inboxes within an organization. This leads to further analysis, quarantine or permanent deletion by the incident response team.
“A feature like PhishRIP benefits organizations greatly, as it decreases the chances of malicious email content circulating amongst unsuspecting employees,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Now that it’s available for G Suite, even more organizations will be able to take advantage of this feature to help keep inboxes clean organization-wide.”
Users can now access PhishRIP on both Microsoft 365 programs and G Suite through their KnowBe4 subscription.
