During the 30-day PoC, Abnormal identified in excess of 700 potential attacks, spanning Malware/ Ransomware, credential phishing, Business Email Compromise (BEC), extortion, scam, and invoice fraud.
Abnormal also identified a successful phishing email attack during the PoC, where an employee had fallen victim to a scam when selling a purse online. Unfortunately, as the breach had already occurred before the PoC, the employee lost quite a lot of money.
Following the PoC, the company instructed full implementation in April 2022. Since then, the company has seen a significant reduction in risk and an 8 – 9% reduction in time spent looking for phishing attacks. This has improved team productivity, allowing them to free up their time to concentrate on other important activities.
“In the long term, we expect to continue to see a reduction of risk,” said the IT Systems Specialist Manager. “That’s the benefit of AI-based security: it’s not a stagnant system that works with hard-set rules. The system continually improves, grows, learns, and adapts to employee behavior over time. Of course, letting our guard down completely would not be prudent, but we have that safety net, which helps our team save time with confidence that the solution is catching malicious emails.”
