What We Do

SlashNext is the authority on phishing. Our world-class real-time anti-phishing solutions provide end-to-end protection, detection, analytics, and reporting inside and outside the network perimeter.

Why We Do it

Phishing attacks have skyrocketed, with a 350% increase since 2020, and bad actors are exploiting the human attack surface like never before. Using new attack vectors, new evasion techniques, and social engineering payloads, bad actors have strengthened their arsenal, and most organizations are ill-prepared to stop these fast-moving threats.

SlashNext’s innovative patented, real-time phishing technology protects the broadest phishing attack surface making it uniquely positioned to stop these threats with protection that is smart, easy-to-use, and simple to deploy and manage.

SlashNext Mission

Protect the World’s Internet Users from Phishing

The SlashNext Story

Atif Mushtaq, former lead architect of FireEye’s core malware detection technology, started SlashNext when phishing and social engineering began overtaking malware as the biggest online threat to businesses. While malware sandboxes matured, and successfully examine suspicious files, there were no technologies available to effectively “sandbox” and detect web pages used in phishing attacks. At the same time, fast-moving, short-lived phishing attacks allowed cybercriminals to stay one step ahead of security controls. What was needed was a faster, more automated and accurate approach.

So, Atif assembled a team of cybersecurity professionals in Silicon Valley and overseas to pioneer a more effective, cloud-powered approach to phishing site detection. The result is a patented, award-winning, real-time threat detection technology called SEER™ and a variety of enterprise and OEM deployment options available for email, mobile, endpoints, network controls.

 

SlashNext is backed by Norwest Venture Partners and Wing Venture Capital and has customers around the world.
