    We’re excited to announce a significant enhancement to our Automated Phishing Investigation solution, using Generative AI. Intezer can now inspect the actual text of emails by integrating with Generative AI, adding another layer of analysis to our robust phishing investigation suite.

    With Generative AI, Intezer can now analyze the body content and HTML for hidden elements — even if the emails don’t include a phishing link or malicious file attachments.

    Beyond Traditional Phishing Analysis Techniques

    Our existing approach to investigating phishing emails involved analyzing files, links, and metadata using multiple analysis techniques and threat intelligence sources. While these methods are effective, we recognized the need to delve deeper and also inspect the actual text of the email, much like how a human would approach a suspicious email.

    Mimicking Human Investigations of Phishing Emails

    The integration of Large Language Models (LLM) AI serves to add another perspective to the analysis process. When humans investigate suspicious emails, they don’t just look at metadata and links; they read the text to determine the risk. By integrating Generative AI into Intezer’s email analysis process, we mimic this human approach, allowing for a more comprehensive analysis of potential phishing threats.

    Analyzing Text and Underlying HTML

    Our Generative AI doesn’t just stop at the email body text. It goes a step further to inspect the underlying HTML to detect any hidden elements that might be embedded within the email. This thorough inspection ensures that even the most sophisticated phishing attempts, employing hidden elements or obfuscated text, do not go unnoticed.
