SlashNext has announced the release of its 2.0 Real time Phishing Defense APIs, designed to protect the reputation and brands of internet, messaging, hosting and cloud services from the exponential growth and dangers of phishing attacks worldwide. SlashNext also announced the free community version of its API designed for threat hunters, researchers and incident response teams to detect and respond to targeted phishing threats, while protecting their companies from harmful brand squatting scams and attacks.

Phishing continues to explode in 2020, particularly with the shift to remote learning, working and playing, converging work and personal lives on the same device. Globally, phishers are using fake login scams, scareware tactics, fraudulent ads and rogue software downloads as attack payloads.

They are attacking in and outside of email using SMS/iMessage, social networks, new collaboration, video conferencing and gaming services, significantly affecting the brands and reputations of businesses, consumers and service providers alike.

"Millions of people have experienced examples of brand attacks whether it is the scary email scam, to 'change your password' from your bank or the fake 'pick up your package' text message from USPS or Amazon," said Patrick Harr, CEO of SlashNext. "The explosion of these and many more phishing attacks is having a dramatic effect on the brands and reputations of companies and internet services.  Our lightning-fast, scalable and highly accurate APIs are designed to scan, detect and prevent phishing attacks before they happen, protecting the brands and reputations of the services that people depend on around the world."

SlashNext's Real-time Phishing Defense APIs lead the industry with the greatest speed of threat detection at internet scale, while driving 99.07% detection accuracy and a one-in-one million false positive rate, enabling customers to be fully protected. The APIs allow organisations offering secure email and messaging services, email marketing, hosting and cloud services to easily plug into the SlashNext 2.0 AI Detection Engine.

The APIs detect external phishing attacks in milliseconds, whether internally hosted or embedded in services, including shortened URLs and URL redirects. When necessary, full scanning and forensics are available to quickly preempt phishing attempts before they land. Customers can also leverage the APIs to automate take-down services with playbooks designed to protect the world's largest brands.
