Cofense Acquires Cloud-Native, AI-Based Email Security Provider Cyberfish
Combination of Cofense’s Phishing Intelligence from over 26 million human reporters and Cyberfish’s AI-based protection technology will eliminate the need for legacy email security solutions
LEESBURG, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cofense®, the leading provider of phishing detection and response (PDR) solutions, today announced the acquisition of Cyberfish, provider of next-generation phishing protection powered by Computer Vision and advanced Machine Learning (ML) technology. By integrating innovative machine learning capabilities from Cyberfish with Cofense’s detection and response technology, Cofense will bring to market a holistic, advanced automation solution for email protection, detection, and response.
With the acceleration of digital transformation and migration to cloud email services from Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, organizations are rethinking their email security architecture and technology stack. For customers investigating a move away from legacy email security providers like Proofpoint, Mimecast, Symantec and Cisco, Cofense will help expedite this transition. Cofense’s unparalleled phishing intelligence, already deployed in thousands of enterprises around the world, will be also used to train and evolve Cyberfish’s machine-learning algorithms to block malicious emails in real-time.
“Together, Cofense and Cyberfish will offer a one-stop shop for an organization’s email security needs, eliminating the need for many expensive and slow-to-deploy legacy solutions,” said Rohyt Belani, Cofense CEO and Co-founder. “With organizations increasingly working to consolidate technology vendors, we are laying the groundwork to support our customers in this endeavor and maintain the high quality they expect in whatever solutions they adopt. This includes our ongoing commitment to the MSP ecosystem Cyberfish has developed. Disrupting the email security market is in Cofense’s DNA, and we look forward to advancing phishing detection and response capabilities for more organizations and MSPs in 2021.”
“Cyberfish is excited to join forces with Cofense to solve the phishing problem and take email security to another level,” said Dima Kagan, Cyberfish CEO and Co-founder. “As we met with the team, it quickly became obvious that we share the same vision for how to revolutionize the email security market, which includes addressing the business requirements of MSPs and enterprises offering advanced email protection beyond Microsoft and Google. We look forward to working together to bring that vision to reality through Advanced AI and automation capabilities.”
Cyberfish’s technology, which can be installed in less than one minute to enable real-time phishing protection, will be immediately deployed as part of the Cofense Managed PDR service and available to global MSP partners.
