Email Protection allows you to set up robust email filtering policies as a first step in routing email to users. You can create detailed firewall rules based on your needs. Even set up policies for anti-virus. We also leverage user bulk mail actions to improve the accuracy of future detection and classification. With a wealth of data and search tools, you can ensure your organization's email is protected.
Impostor Email Threat Protection
Imposter attacks are hard to detect. Our Stateful Composite Scoring Service (SCSS) is a machine learning approach that searches specifically for these email threats. It uses what’s known about your unique environment, along with data from all Proofpoint customers, to more effectively detect and block email fraud.
Internal Mail Defense
As organizations move to cloud-based email services, compromised accounts are on the rise. Extend email security to help detect compromised accounts with Internal Mail Defense. It can automatically scan all internal email traffic, providing a multi-layered approach to identify spam, malware or phishing attacks sent via compromised accounts. It removes these emails and provides reporting to show which accounts have been compromised.
Email downtime can be a significant hit to worker productivity. Enterprise Continuity ensures email is always available, even if your company email is down. It provides full access to users—via Outlook integration, a web portal or native mobile support. And it automatically activates in an outage, with fully automated recovery.
Three warning signs of a Business Email Compromise (BEC) attack
BEC is perpetrated when attackers spoof a trusted identity to lure their targets into providing sensitive information and rerouting funds. Since these attacks rely on publicly available research and social engineering rather than malicious links or attachments, they can be especially hard to detect using traditional tools and methods.
To successfully identify and protect against BEC attacks, keep these three common warning signs in mind.
