InfoSec Institute launches phishing defense tool

InfoSec Institute, the provider of comprehensive security training solutions, has announced the release of PhishDefender, a powerful new anti-phishing tool available through its SecurityIQ security awareness training platform, the company said.

PhishDefender works by dynamically linking learner data to real-time email security controls to drop phishing susceptibility rates to as low as 0%.

PhishDefender lets program managers automatically activate stronger security settings on high-risk learner email accounts. Based on administrator-defined learner performance criteria, PhishDefender disables links from incoming emails and highlights suspicious elements. If learners take action to improve their risk profiles — by completing additional training or improving security-related behavior — restrictions are removed from their accounts. This happens dynamically, giving learners instant reward for positive behavioral changes.

InfoSec Institute provides award-winning security awareness and training solutions.
