Spear phishing attacks are customized and target a specific individual, while phishing attacks are generally sent as mass generic emails containing malware in the form of attachments, URLs, generic scams like the infamous “Nigerian prince” scam.

Anti-malware and link analysis

Anti-Malware and Link Analysis

Our embedded anti-malware software creates an in-depth integrated defense featuring our behavioral detection technology combined with two external anti-virus solutions. Between these three systems, malware doesn’t stand a chance of getting through. Every attached file gets examined including executable files, Office documents, and PDFs.

Vade Secure’s link analysis safely isolates and explores URLs in every email just before users click on them. This is done every time the user tries to click on a link, which ensures that we even catch dynamic links “sleeper” malware, and phishing pages.
