Advanced Phishing Email Solution.

Advanced Phishing Email Solution.


Emails are now the No.1 method hackers use to get to your company data. They do this by simply asking users for their ID and password through a perfectly legitimate looking request.
Do you have protection in place, but still receive suspicious emails that bypass the filters used by the likes of Google or Microsoft?


Malicious content, email scams and phishing are not new, we have all received one. These emails are on the rise and what’s worse? They are getting much smarter. Gone are the days of emails scattered with spelling and format errors asking for credit card details. We are now facing phishing emails that look and feel perfectly legitimate.

AN EXAMPLE

An email may appear to be from a Microsoft account page asking for a password reset, but it’ll actually go to a fake location to collect the ID and password you type in. An email may appear to come from your MD, demanding urgent payment of a fake invoice, or it may give you a link to a fake company document that is actually a Ransomware deployment.


The workforce is becoming more remote, mobile working means more email, document sharing and online collaboration. Complacency can creep in when working outside of an office environment, without the ability to quickly check with a colleague or member of IT staff. Cyber criminals only have to get it right once.


Credential theft via email phishing has become a widespread problem, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue. Users often reuse credentials across multiple systems, meaning stolen credentials can be used to break into corporate email systems or other assets, placing both individuals and organizations at growing risk.

29% of corporate security breaches involve the use of stolen credentials.

The profitability of ransomware is flourishing due to the simplicity of its business model and the ease of use of its operating model.

Ransomware can have an overwhelming impact on businesses of all sizes. Personal and corporate data, network share files (hosting sensitive employee data, intellectual property or customer data), and all other valuable content can be taken hostage by ransomware.

The Information Commissioner has the power to issue a monetary penalty for an infringement of the provisions of Part 3 of the Act – Law Enforcement Processing.

The standard maximum amount is £8.7 million or 2% of the total annual worldwide turnover in the preceding financial year, whichever is higher. However, a higher maximum does exist which is £17.5 million or 4% of the total annual worldwide turnover.

Data exfiltration jumped 20 percent during Q4 2020, now occurring in 70 percent of all ransomware attacks.

Ransomware threat actors are increasingly leveraging email phishing as the leading entry point in these destructive attacks.

Given business is built on trust, it’s easy to see how a Phishing attack can cause business disruption.

The financial cost of remediation, the widespread reputational damage, impacted investor confidence and interruption of critical infrastructure & services, meaning employees are unable to carry out day-to-day tasks are a few examples of the impact to an organisation.

Don’t be worried about rogue Phising emails.


With Net Consulting’s Advanced Phishing Validation Service, you can finally put those concerns to bed. Advanced email protection systems exist as bolt-on solutions, but they can be complicated to deploy, expensive, and often overkill for smaller companies.

Our Validation service offers a pragmatic means of Phishing detection while still using best-of-breed intelligence sources.


If a user receives an email they aren’t expecting, they simple forward it to be validated. The service will then extract files, links, sender details and keywords and check the email against various threat sources, providing a verdict on the email’s legitimacy.


This service is an augmentation of Net Consulting’s Managed Endpoint Protection service combined with our security hardening expertise developed working with defence clients. This service is for users, data or systems that have a higher level of threat associated with them. For example: special projects, merger and acquisition programmes, heads of development, senior executives. Services may only be required for fixed periods of time and can be turned up or down on request.


The service is powered by Palo Alto’s ever-growing WildFire Threat Intelligence Service. A leading threat intelligence service collating data from the largest global community of users and constantly evolving.  Relax in the knowledge that your potential threats are being analysed by the best and most up-to-date intelligence available.
