    Detection based on Server Name Indicator as well as Domain names.

    Using SNI Corrata never goes dark even when DNS traffic is encrypted.

    Privacy concerns are leading more and more end users to ‘hide’ their DNS requests using DNS over https (DOH) or DNS over tls (DOT). To address this Corrata has developed a unique capability to establish server domains using the Server Name Indicator (SNI) protocol.

    Specialist threat intelligence.

    Corrata enhances standard industry phishing block lists with specialist smishing threat intelligence.

    Traditional phishing threat intelligence focuses on email. As a result many mobile security solutions lack reliable, timely intelligence on mobile attacks. Corrata augments traditional threat intelligence with threat research focused on smishing and other mobile specific threats.

FAQ’s

85% of phishing on mobile takes place outside email therefore bypassing your email security protections. And employees are notably less vigilant when using mobile due to its convenience and informality.

Unfortunately the built in consumer grade protections against unsafe content found on mobile devices are completely ineffective against the pace at which new phishing domains are generated. They are particularly useless against the kind of targeted attacks used against organizations.

Corrata doesn’t just rely on industry threat intelligence. As a mobile security specialist we generate our own proprietary intelligence and combine it with machine learning assisted techniques to spot malicious attacks before the competition.
