PhishNet for Google Workspace

PhishNet is an add-in button that helps users to submit directly to Cloud Email Security (formerly Area 1) phish samples missed by Area 1’s detection. PhishNet avoids the previous process, where users had to report phish to their email admins, which then had to manually download and forward the sample to Cloud Email Security.
