While malware may be delivered directly as an attachment to a phishing message, a more frequent tactic has been to drive recipients to click on a link where the resulting web page either automatically initiates a download or tricks the user to enter sensitive or private information. Users who click on these links may be doing so at home, the airport or a hotel, and not behind the corporate firewall, making standard web gateway solutions useless. To counter these attacks, the URL Clicktime Defense Service ensures that each time a user clicks on a link, the URL request is redirected to analysis by Proofpoint's cloud - and that URL is analyzed in real-time before the user is allowed to proceed. Working in conjunction with Proofpoint's Anomalytics Service, only suspicious URLs are redirected for the Clicktime Defense Service, giving organizations the ability to defend against targeted attacks even after an email has been delivered to the recipients inbox.
