Viewing Affected Recipients

Affected recipients are recipients of malicious or suspicious email messages. Gain intelligence about who in your network is targeted by spear-phishing attacks or social engineering attacks and understand the attack behavior in related messages. Learn if your executive is targeted by the attacks and then raise his/her awareness about the attack pattern. Discovering a community of affected recipients belonging to the same department can indicate that the attacker has access to your company address book.
