TLDR: Email Phishing Response

  • Retrieve attachments and links; scan, detonate, and deliver results

  • Automate user communications
  • Automate threat hunting to allow for search of IOCs and data mapping across the organization
  • Quarantine or block compromised endpoints automatically

What is Email Phishing Response?

An email investigation can be triggered by email security solutions or by users reporting potential phishing, spam or malware findings. Upon the incident being reported, a security analyst will have to initiate a series of tasks to find the risk level of the alert before coming up with a verdict.

The tasks include an analysis and investigation of the event to scope and assess the criticality/impact of the threat and whether the event has affected end users. Once the assessment is complete, it’s followed by containment and remediation activities.

An analyst will perform the same activities for each incident potentially hundreds to thousands times per week. This makes it very difficult to scale security operations, and can quickly overwhelm a security team — putting the overall organization at risk.
