What it Is: Employees don’t always have proper training on IT security issues, so they may be prone to click on phishing emails, malicious links, or other types of social engineer, leading to security issues for the whole organization. Even with plenty of user education, some people just love to click! Happy clickers are a fact of life for many businesses and are by far your greatest risk.
How We Protect: Strongarm acts as an extra layer of protection for those clickers in your organization. If a user clicks on a bad link, Strongarm will prevent the machine from communicating with the attacker and gives you the opportunity to give your user a dose of phishing education from right inside Strongarm. Happy clickers can also be encouraged to forward emails to Strongarm using our Suspicious service, which will review and verify whether the email is safe. If it’s a phish, we will automatically blackhole any domains in the e-mail so that if anyone else in your organization clicks on the phish, they will be protected.
