About this White paper
This document discusses the characteristics of spam, phishing and malware threats, and the challenges facing technologies that aim to mitigate these attacks.
Cyren's Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD) technology overcomes these challenges to detect and classify all types of email-borne threat patterns in real-time. RPD is hosted in the Cyren GlobalView Network, which proactively analyzes billions of Internet transactions daily.
"Spam, phishing and email-borne malware...are most often released in large quantities in a relatively short period of time, causing global damage of tens of billions of dollars annually...[prevention] methods...lack the ability to adapt quickly enough to the rapid change of distribution and infiltration techniques invented by spammers and malware authors."
