Phishing Authority SlashNext Announces World's First On-Device AI Mobile Phishing Defense

Today, SlashNext introduced the world's first on-device AI mobile phishing defense for IOS and Android with natural language and link-based detection to protect users from the exponential increase in mobile-based SMS phishing attacks. Users can benefit from the industry's fastest and most accurate, 2.0 mobile AI phishing defense, protecting users from all forms of phishing across all their communication channels, such as SMS, email, social networking, gaming, collaboration and search.

CEO of SlashNext Patrick Harr explained: "Bad actors know that SMS is one of the most popular ways to communicate in the new remote working and learning world. 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."

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. Organizations must start looking at next-generation, 2.0 phishing defense methods that utilize AI and dynamic analysis to detect threats.

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

SlashNext Mobile AI Phishing Defense offers anywhere, anytime, zero-hour protection against the broadest range of phishing threats with lightweight, cloud-powered apps for iOS and Android devices. A simple, intuitive user experience blocks threats, alerts users with a warning page and offers a safe preview with information about the threat.

The SlashNext AI phishing detection cloud with patented SEER technology, has the industry's largest phishing database, delivering 99.07% accuracy and one in one million false positives. SlashNext inspects billions of internet transactions and millions of suspicious URLs daily using virtual browsers to detect zero-hour phishing attacks across all communication channels- email, SMS, collaboration, messaging, social networking, and search services - up to 30 days before they are live. So, when phishing campaigns launch, the threats are already blocked by SlashNext, and users are protected immediately.

The same level of phishing protection is also available with SlashNext Browser Phishing Protection.
