Contain Phishing Attacks

Published on 08 Aug 2022

Phishing Attacks

Even though there have been improvements in ways to stop phishing and train employees, phishing attacks are becoming more common. Because they are so useful. After all, employees have to click on links to do their jobs, and phishing links are hard to spot because of social engineering.

Phishing links work well because there are so many malicious websites and they don't last long. Their content changes often to avoid being put in the right category. This is made worse by employees who click on links quickly without thinking and leave their email and chat clients open, giving cybercriminals an easy way in.

An Inexpensive And Effective Way To Deliver Malicious Payloads

Phishing links are always changing and come in many different forms:

  • Spear phishing is a type of scam that targets specific people by using their names, job titles or work processes. 
  • Whaling is a type of scam that targets company officers and is often written as legal notices, customer complaints, or executive issues.
  • Inadvertent infection: sharing news or social media links that have been hacked

There are many ways to carry out a phishing attack:

  • Phishing links in email messages 
  • Malicious links in harmless email attachments 
  • Targeted links or messages on social media platforms 
  • Links shared in chat programs

Hp Sure Click Enterprise, Which Is Powered By Bromium, Uses Application Isolation To Keep Phishing Threats Away From The Host.

HP Sure Click Enterprise1 provides a virtual safety net for PC users, even when unknown threats get past other protections. Hardware-enforced virtualization separates high-risk content to protect user PCs, data, and credentials. This makes malware harmless, and IT gets actionable threat intelligence to help strengthen the security of the organization.

This virtualization-based security is used by HP Sure Click Enterprise to protect organizations from phishing attacks by opening every shared link in a micro-VM browser tab that is protected. Using hardware-enforced isolation, each browser tab runs in its own secure container that is completely separate from the host and all other browser tabs. This keeps the tabs from getting mixed up with each other. When you close the browser tab, the micro-VM and any threats end. The full malware kill-chain is sent to the HP Sure Click Enterprise Controller and shared with all other HP Sure Click Enterprise devices on your network. This makes the infrastructure even stronger and reduces the attack surface overall.

Application Isolation: Protect Before You Detect

Contain Phishing Threats

Open every link in its own browser tab with a micro-VM. Malware is contained if it is served, so both the host and the network are safe. Now, employees can click without fear.

Speed Up It Security And Save Money

With HP Sure Click Enterprise's high-fidelity alerts, you can cut down on triage time by a lot and stop wasting resources on false positives. Stop reimaging, rebuilding, and making quick fixes.

Share Threat Intelligence In Real Time

Adaptive intelligence finds and stops attacks that try to avoid being found. It also shares real-time threat data across your network and gives your SOC a full kill-chain analysis.

Achieve Lasting Protection With Hardware-Enforced Security

Hardware-enforced application isolation is only possible with HP Sure Click Enterprise, which uses virtualization-based security. Protect yourself from threats you don't know about and malware that can change shape and can easily get past even the most advanced tools.
