KillPhish is an advanced email threat protection add-in for Microsoft 365 (Office 365). It scans known threats on Windows, Mac/iOS, Android Outlook, for Desktop, Web, and Mobile. It enables reporting phishing and other types of threats. Each inbox's risk profile is unique, and KillPhish can help expose telltale signs of threats to your security.
