Phishing is the primary method of entry in 90% of cyber-attacks world-wide and many high-profile breaches emanate from a single, successful phish.
Since it typically takes more than 200 days to detect a breach, global organizations need to focus their efforts on prevention and response to neutralize these highly successful attack methods.
Human-Driven Phishing Solutions
Even with record investments, the number of breaches attributed to phishing attacks, continues to grow. It’s obvious that technology alone can’t solve the problem.
That’s why Cofense solutions focus on engaging the human–your last line of defense after a phish bypasses other technology–for better prevention and response. Cofense delivers a comprehensive human phishing defense platform focused on fortifying employees and enabling incident response teams to quickly analyze and respond to targeted phishing attacks.

It works with most popular email solutions including Outlook, Office 365, Gmail and IBM Notes.
No matter how much you invest in “next-gen” email technologies, malicious email makes it past the perimeter. Whether it’s an attempt to deploy malware on your network or steal user credentials, the leading cause of breaches are successful phishing campaigns. It’s easy for organizations to point to the everyday employee as the root cause – as the problem to be solved. We disagree. Cofense™ believes employees – humans – should be empowered as part of the solution to help strengthen defenses, gather real-time attack intelligence, and stop phishing attacks in progress.
Cofense Vision enables your SOC team to understand the totality of a phishing attack. Working with Cofense Triage, our platform reveals “who else” received phishing emails reported by employees. It finds and quarantines ALL emails in an active phishing campaign, including unreported emails, so you can block the threat faster.
Cofense Triage organizes phishing emails into clusters, by malicious criteria. Cofense Vision precisely identifies all emails in a cluster, across your organization, giving you the full picture of an attack faster. It searches well beyond Sender, Subject, and Date, checking every mailbox to find all recipients. It’s the smarter way see and stop the whole phishing attack.
