SlashNext is the Authority on Multi-Channel Phishing and Human Hacking

Organizations trust SlashNext to stop the number one cyber threat where others fail.

SlashNext's Mission

Protect the world’s 4B internet users from phishing and human hacking across all digital channels.

The SlashNext Story

SlashNext was founded in 2015 during a significant rise in phishing, morphing payloads, and a very strong belief that phishing would grow from email into a multi-channel problem and become the number one cyber threat to organizations. There was a recognition that something needed to change.

 

Atif Mushtaq, the visionary founder behind SlashNext and one of the main architects of FireEye’s core malware sandbox technology, recognized phishing detection, like malware, needed to move from signature-based reputation techniques to behavioral analysis. What was needed was a faster, more automated, and accurate approach to phishing detection.  With that knowledge, SlashNext built an Artificial Intelligence (AI) phishing detection engine with virtual browsers and behavioral analysis using computer vision, natural language processing, and several machine-learning classifiers to detect and stop well-crafted multi-payload phishing attacks delivered multiple communication channels, including legitimate infrastructure. 

 

Today, as humans have moved completely to the cloud, using apps, browsers and mobile devices to communicate with work, family, and friends, SlashNext is uniquely positioned to stop multi-channel phishing and human hacking

Our AI Detection Makes Us Unique

SlashNext’s patented cloud and on-device AI goes beyond email protection to multi-channel protection, and stops spear phishing, social engineering, and other targeted human threats across popular communication channels and collaboration apps. Only SlashNext protects organizations from these malicious user threats by detecting tens of thousands of zero-hour multi-channel phishing threats daily from billions of websites with the extreme accuracy of 99.9% detection rate, time to detection advantage of 48 hours, and the industry’s lowest false positive rate of 1 in 1 million. 

“When cybercriminals launch successful multi-channel phishing and social engineering attacks, the results are massively disruptive to people, organizations, and the economy. This is the number one cyber challenge that organizations face globally, and bad actors are only increasing their attacks in Linkedin, MS Teams, Messenger and Slack and taking advantage of the most vulnerable part of organizations – its people. This is why we continue to see considerable growth in customers and ARR since the introduction of our multi-channel AI defense service.”
