Email continues to be one of the most popular communication mediums for companies today. Checking email is the first thing that most employees do when they start their day, and they will access email using multiple devices, from a variety of locations.
When accessing their email users can fall victim to content and malware that has typically been socially engineered to appeal to their function and/or curiousity. For example, targeted spearphishing attacks via email is now one of the methods of choice for attackers wanting to exploit networks, systems and data.
In the past organisations have deployed different email security solutions such as secure email gateways (SEG) in combination with education and awareness within their organisation. The perpetrators of email attacks have learnt from this, and have adapted their approach accordingly. For example, they might send an email that has been ‘spoofed’ to look like it came from a Board member, typically the CEO or CFO, requesting financial information or the transfer of funds.
We offer a number of email security solutions based on technology from leading vendors in this space. The aim of these solutions is to protect people, data and ultimately the brand against advanced email threats and compliance risks. An effective email security defense will help you to effectively detect and block targeted email attacks and respond quickly to suspected breaches.
Our solutions can stop up to 99% of attachment-based attacks. They also allow you to share large files securely and protect sensitive information as it is sent, stored, and archived.
The most effective solutions provide granular filtering to control bulk "graymail" and other unwanted email. And business continuity capabilities keep email communications flowing, even when your server fails.
Protection against email fraud
Email fraud does not necessarily involve malware, but it does seek to impersonate email from a trusted sender. These low volume, hard-to-detect threats have cost businesses globally more than $5.3 billion and are difficult to detect for solutions that only focus on identifying and mitigating malware.
More sophisticated solutions detect and classify impostor email through a combination of authentication (DMARC), pre-defined rules and dynamic classification. The technology used actively assesses the reputation of the sender for accurate protection without additional administrative overhead. The following is analysed:
- Sender-recipient relationship
- Domain reputation
- Email headers and envelope attributes
- Email content
- Far-reaching intelligence and visibility
Mature email security solutions incorporate global intelligence platforms that span email, social and mobile. They collect and analyse more than 100 billion data points a day from more than 100 million email boxes, 200 million social media accounts, and seven million mobile apps. That’s a lot!
This data-informed intelligence gives you critical visibility to understand the context and scale of an attack—and the actionable insight you need to resolve it quickly and effectively.
Cloud-based versus on-premise email security
We offer solutions that are built on an advanced cloud platform, blending speed and innovation. They deploy, adapt and update faster than on-premise tools to keep you ahead of the latest threats. For example, a 360,000 user organization recently deployed this solution in just 48 hours. On-premise solutions are also available where required.
