Phishing defence firm, Cofence has acquired Cyberfish, the provider of next-generation phishing protection powered by Computer Vision and Machine Learning (ML) technology.

By integrating innovative machine learning capabilities from Cyberfish with Cofense’s detection and response technology, Cofense will be able to bring to market an automation solution for email protection, detection, and response.

With the acceleration of digital transformation and migration to cloud email services from Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, organisations are rethinking their email security architecture and technology stack.

For customers investigating a move away from legacy email security providers like Proofpoint, Mimecast, Symantec and Cisco, Cofense will help expedite this transition.

Its phishing intelligence has been currently deployed by enterprises around the world. Adding Cofense to Cyberfish’s machine-learning algorithms, will also help to train the combined solution to train and evolve to block malicious emails in real-time.

Rohyt Belani CEO and co-founder of Cofense said the combined company will offer a one-stop shop for an organisation’s email security needs, eliminating the need for many expensive and slow-to-deploy legacy solutions.

“With organisations increasingly working to consolidate technology vendors, we are laying the groundwork to support our customers in this endeavor and maintain the high quality they expect in whatever solutions they adopt,” he said. “This includes our ongoing commitment to the MSP ecosystem Cyberfish has developed. Disrupting the email security market is in Cofense’s DNA, and we look forward to advancing phishing detection and response capabilities for more organisations and MSPs in 2021.”

Cyberfish’s technology, which can be installed in less than one minute to enable real-time phishing protection, will be immediately deployed as part of the Cofense Managed PDR service and available to global MSP partners.
