While the world is still battling against the novel coronavirus COVID-19, many companies are increasingly facing the wrath of new forms of cyberattacks. Latest reports suggest that COVID-19-related phishing attacks have increased by a whopping 600 percent in the last two months. One of the reasons for this surge is the abundant phishing campaigns that are taking advantage of the heightened focus on the pandemic. The intent behind these campaigns is to steal credentials and scam users.

Using APIs, the Threat InDepth tool extracts URLs from web and email traffic, classifies and analyses the URLs, and informs threat hunters on what may be hiding in plain sight—all in a matter of seconds. Besides, Cyren provides GlobalView, a bi-directional flow of threat data. It ingests data from threat engines and pushes analyzed data back to clients via Cyren APIs and enterprise SaaS applications.
Threat Explorer is yet another effective threat detection service that tracks malicious files using real-time analysis of executable files, documents, and more. Threat Explorer provides an API interface for submitting nearly any object for analysis, using multiple analysis engines to provide accurate results faster.
