"Material automatically remediated the phishing messages reported by other employees, reducing our average response time by about 80%. There was a lot of chatter in Slack about it. People were amazed, and it gave them satisfaction knowing that their reports were acted upon so quickly."
— Trevor O’Donovan, Information Security Analyst, Cloudera

Phishing reporting is an incomplete best practice

Veteran security teams know that user reports are essential for detecting attacks that bypass filters. But two key issues limit the impact of traditional reporting workflows:

  • Detection-Remediation Gap: Even when an attack is reported by some users, others fall for it before Security has a chance to triage and remediate.
  • Incomplete Remediation: Finding and addressing all variants of the same attack across all mailboxes is cumbersome and error-prone, especially on an ongoing basis.
