SlashNext, the phishing authority, has announced the first on-device AI mobile phishing defence for IOS and Android with natural language and link-based detection to protect users from the exponential increase in mobile-based SMS phishing (‘SMishing’) attacks.

Now SlashNext, customers and partners can benefit from the industry’s fastest and most accurate, 2.0 mobile AI phishing defence, protecting users from all forms of phishing across all their communication channels - SMS, email, social networking, gaming, collaboration and search - without compromising user privacy or performance. In addition, telecom carriers can now offer a complete SMS phishing defence service to protect their subscribers from the onslaught of SMishing attacks.

“Bad actors know that SMS is one of the most popular ways to communicate in the new remote working and learning world,” said Patrick Harr, CEO of SlashNext. “Our mobile app now brings the power of on device AI and natural language processing to protect against text-based SMishing attacks in addition to link-based and the significant damage that can arise. This is a perfect service for consumers, carriers and businesses alike.”

Moving from 1.0 Human Defence to 2.0 AI Phishing Defence

Today’s threat actors are leveraging new AI phishing methods, while most phishing detection services use legacy, 1.0 tactics like domain reputation, URL inspection, and human forensics to detect phishing attacks. Organisations must start looking at next-generation, 2.0 phishing defence methods that utilise AI and dynamic analysis to detect threats.

SlashNext exclusively focuses on 2.0 AI phishing defence by inspecting billions of URLs at cloud scale with virtual browsers that overcome sophisticated evasion techniques. By leveraging natural language processing, computer vision, and behavioural analysis, SlashNext detects and blocks threats hours and sometimes days before vendors using 1.0 phishing techniques.
