Pixm Emerges from Stealth as the Industry's First Endpoint-based Anti-Phishing Solution

BOSTON and NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pixm, the industry's first endpoint-based anti-phishing solution, emerged from stealth today with next-gen spear-phishing protection in the company's flagship solution. Through advanced computer vision technology, Pixm shuts down phishing attacks at the point of the user's click regardless of their location, device or phishing link source.

Co-founded by Chris Cleveland, CEO, and Arun K. Buduri, President, Pixm was created to address the significant hole that exists in the anti-phishing ecosystem. Today's popular anti-phishing solutions rely on blacklisting to stop only the already known phishing attacks but do little to address new attacks. Pixm's solution is designed to detect and shut down a new zero-day phishing attack within the browser at the moment the page is opened in real-time using computer vision. 

"Over the past few years, attackers significantly ramped up their evasion techniques to blacklist all cloud-based anti-phishing services from seeing their phishing page and reveal phishing attacks to victims only on their endpoints," said Arun K. Buduri, Co-Founder & President of Pixm. "Employees are also being targeted with phishing attacks in their personal accounts, as well as in their homes as a way to breach their work accounts. With the launch of Pixm, we are providing the world with the industry's first endpoint-based solution to solve the phishing epidemic across all attack dimensions."

Pixm Offerings:

  • FREE Personal Edition: Protect your family personal accounts and sensitive information from the most common phishing attacks.
  • Phishing Edition: Protect your business and your customers from the most common phishing attacks.
  • Spear-Phishing Edition: Get custom protection for your Enterprise when you are the target of sophisticated spear-phishing attacks.

"Pixm's computer vision phishing technology will revolutionize the anti-phishing industry and provide end users with a new level of phishing protection not yet seen in the cybersecurity industry," said Ron Gula, Co-Founder & President, Gula Tech Adventures. "Pixm's unique approach of sitting on the endpoint enables real-time defense against all of today's phishing attacks, including internal corporate threats, personal email attacks and hostile social media campaigns."

Pixm is a winner of Google and GSVLabs Competition in Cybersecurity and was recently featured by MIT CIO Symposium as 2018's Top 10 Outstanding Early Stage Companies. RSA Conference 2019 has chosen Pixm to be featured among Top 50 Most Promising Companies in their Early Stage Expo in March 2019.

Pixm's investors include: Gula Tech Adventures, Chaac Ventures, Precursor Ventures, Highland Capital, AIRI Capital, MIT Alumni Angels Boston (Chris Wysopal, Founder/CTO of Veracode), Sriram Krishnan (SVP Headspin), Ryan Hoover (Product Hunt), MIT Enterprise Forum Cambridge Angels (Phil Sipowicz - IT MSP Business Leader), River Valley Investors, among others.
