April 2021 Release

Our team has been hard at work for the last few months to build the next version of ATTACK Simulator. The global pandemic didn’t stop us from designing, developing and releasing the features our clients requested the most. We’re excited to share them with you and get your feedback.

SMiShing Simulations

While email remains the primary attack vector for phishing and malware attacks, SMS messages represent a good opportunity for bad actors to inflict a great deal of damage. Unlike email, which usually has to pass through firewalls and anti-spam/anti-phishing filters, SMS messages get to users’ phones unchecked. SMS Phishing Attacks, also called smishing, increased over 300% during 2,020, and it’s only the beginning.

ATTACK Simulator believes that knowledge is the best defense, and with the proper protocols, training, and awareness, companies can reduce the of cyberattacks. Therefore, we’ve created a new type of simulation: SMS Simulation, a great way to make people aware that SMS messages can be used to steal data or even infect their phones.

SENDER IDENTITIES

The Custom Simulations are one of our most used features. They give our users the flexibility to design their simulations and scheduled them at the right time. We’ve worked on improving this simulation by adding a new feature called sender identities.

This brand-new functionality gives our clients even more flexibility by allowing them to customize the sender’s name and email address.

REINVENTED PLUGINS

The ATTACK Simulator team developed two email client plugins that can be used by our enterprise clients. The plugins are available for Gmail and Outlook and have two main functions:

 

  1. Report phishing simulations: By reporting a simulated attack without clicking on a link or downloading a file, users inform us that they recognized the attack as phishing. This is a very important indicator, as it allows us to verify our users’ actual knowledge.
  2. Gmail and Outlook users can now report suspicious emails, straight from their inbox with a click of a button. The email information is sent to their ATTACK Simulator’s account admins.

Custom Simulations Preview

Clients told us that it’s pretty challenging to design a Custom Simulation without the ability to preview it. In the soon-to-be-released version of ATTACK Simulator, we’ve added the option to preview a simulation before sending it. Therefore, on the final step in the simulation wizard, there’s a new preview button. After clicking it, users can type a name and email to send a preview of their simulation.

Simulation Names

Our customers also informed us that it’s pretty hard to find a specific simulation after some time. So, before starting a simulation, we’ve added a confirmation screen, in which users are prompted to give a name to their simulations. Every simulation will be displayed by its given name, while old simulations will keep their generated standard name.
