Email Verification Reduces Phishing

Email Verification Reduces Phishing

In the mid-90’s, when Tim Berners-Lee created the foundational elements of what would later become the World Wide Web, business and society entered the digital age. One of the many innovations that accompanied this technological transformation was email, which rapidly grew into the primary business communication medium.

 

Since then, the infiltration of social media and instant messaging apps have been chipping away at the dominance of email, but it still remains a critical component of modern IT architectures. However, due to its ubiquity, email is a common threat vector utilized by cybercriminals for nefarious purposes.

 

Whois XML API provides infosec professionals with tools to reduce the risk of hackers using email to infect devices and steal user credentials.
