I want to tell you about a white paper and a screencast review I have done on behalf of Inky for a new product called Phish Fence. You can get both items here. Phishing has become the gateway drug for criminals to infect your company with malware, and has become more sophisticated in the last several years with targeted attacks that employ all kinds of obfuscation techniques. Phish Fence displays warning messages as part of your inbox and has both free and paid versions. My review shows you how it works, and my paper puts phishing in the appropriate context and also discusses some of the more noteworthy recent attacks.
It has been a busy week for mergers, new products and funding announcements, we have the details below. Finally, because of Thanksgiving, we will only publish a newsletter today and tomorrow and take the rest of the week off.
