With the help of the Anti-Phishing protection module, you can protect your company mailboxes against phishing and malicious links that can be sent in email messages.

Phishing links lead to fraudulent websites designed to steal the personal data of users, such as bank account details. A phishing attack can be disguised, for example, as a message from your bank with a link to its official website. If you click the link, you are redirected to an exact copy of the bank's website, and the browser might even display the bank website's address. However, you are actually on a spoofed (fake) website. All of your actions on the website are tracked and can be used to steal your personal data.

Malicious links lead to web resources designed to spread malware.

The application detects phishing and malicious links according to the detection rules developed by the Kaspersky experts. Kaspersky regularly updates rules and methods of detecting phishing and malicious links.

While scanning messages for phishing and malicious links, the application analyzes not only links, but also the message subject, contents, design features, and other message attributes. The scan makes use of Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) cloud services. With the help of KSN, the application receives the latest information about phishing links and malicious links before they appear in the Kaspersky databases.

When creating a security policy, you can specify the Anti-Phishing settings.
