Cyber Defense Global Award Winner

PLEASANTON, Calif., October 3, 2018 – SlashNext, the leader in real-time phishing protection for businesses, today announced that is has been selected as anti-phishing solution winner by the Cyber Defense Global Awards. Today’s short-lived phishing attacks move faster than security defenses can be updated to block them, leaving organizations exposed. SlashNext is the industry’s first purpose-built solution for real-time detection of zero-hour phishing threats to protect employees from malicious phishing sites, regardless of phishing attack vector.

“With over 46,000 new phishing sites popping up each day and disappearing within mere hours, static threat feeds and block lists can’t keep pace with today’s rapidly evolving and short-lived phishing threats,” said Atif Mushtaq, CEO, SlashNext. “We are very honored to be recognized by the Cyber Defense Global awards as a leading solution for anti-phishing by addressing this growing threat with a smarter, adaptive, cloud-powered approach for more effective real-time detection of today’s phishing threats.”

Using Session Emulation, SlashNext SEER™ threat detection technology renders suspicious web pages in an out-of-band cloud environment that analyzes web page content (text, HTML, images) while simultaneously engaging the suspicious server for detailed behavioral analysis. In seconds, SlashNext definitively detects malicious sites with machine learning algorithms fed by natural language processing, visual clues, and hacker behavior analysis—regardless of the domain and server hosting the page.

“Cyber Defense Magazine spent six months searching the globe to find the most innovative and cutting edge cyber security companies for our Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards.” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “SlashNext won this award for Cutting Edge Anti-phishing because it is an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively.”
