by Michela Menting | 1Q 2016 | IN-3973

Earlier this month, threat intelligence firm Cloudmark, Inc. announced a new solution targeting spear phishing attacks, Cloudmark Trident™, leveraging the firms’ Global Threat Network. Trident is a cloud-based offering and evaluates all inbound traffic in an enterprise, after it has gone through the Secure Email Gateway (SEG) but before it is delivered to email stores, in order to discover suspicious profiles.
