What is Email Security?

Email security uses technology to inspect incoming emails for malicious threats and encrypt--or secure--outbound email traffic to protect mailboxes, data, users, and organizations from cybersecurity attacks and schemes. Cloud email security is increasingly important as more and more companies migrate to a cloud or hybrid email platform. Our Email Security's layered defenses can provide comprehensive protection that incorporates email security best practices .
How can email messages be compromised?
While many cybersecurity professionals are aware of common email security threats like phishing, ransomware, business email compromise, and other inbound threats, it's important to also consider data protection and securing outbound traffic. That is, putting measures in place to prevent users from sending sensitive data via email to external parties. There are four main components of an email message that can be compromised or manipulated:

  • The body of the email
  • The attachments of the email
  • URLs contained within the email
  • The sender's email address
Human Interaction
more than 99% of the attacks we observe require human interaction to succeed
Number 1 Vector
more than 90% of cyber attacks start with email
What are email security best practices?
Email security best practices include the use of a robust email security posture that contains layers of security measures, including effective security intelligence across your entire architecture, retrospective remediation, and encryption to prevent data leakage among other features.
Defenders don’t focus on people, attackers do

In short, most security dollars and attention (eyeballs) are pointed in the wrong direction. It’s pointed at the network and endpoint, when we really should be focusing on people.

Advanced Threat Protection:
Pulling Ahead With Industry Leading Solution

Our Advanced Threat Protection detects known and unknown threats in email (phishing attacks) that use malicious attachments and URLs. These types of advanced threats include polymorphic malware, weaponized documents, and credential phish – they are particularly difficult to catch because some (like credential phish) do not contain malware or are not malicious at the time of delivery.

Essentials scans all your email traffic and analyzes all threats that contain attachments and URLs – this gives use a broad view of the email threat landscape. The quality and quantity of our threat intelligence is key to our product efficacy. This, in part, is due to the customers we have and the email threat intel that we derive from the traffic we see. We have a threat graph of 700B+ data points with intel across email, networks, social media, and mobile apps (no other vendor has this).

We blocks threats from reaching people – whether that’s quarantining the email at the time-of-delivery so it never reaches the inbox or redirecting the user to a block page when they click (time-of-click) on a rewritten malicious URL. We track clicks, so we can see if a person has clicked on a rewritten URL that has turned malicious.

And finally, we can apply the same level of protection to your social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. These accounts can be monitored for unauthorized changes and malicious links. You can even apply additional corporate policies to these accounts to scan and remove inappropriate content such as racist or abusive content or profanity.
