Closing the Net on the Phishing Problem

Closing the Net on the Phishing Problem

86% of enterprises worldwide now use cloud-based tools. At the same time, Business Email Compromise (BEC) accounts for over 50% of all cybercrime losses of which the majority are email-based phishing and social engineering attacks. This is because of the gaps in your email security.

Organizations must adopt a layered approach with solutions like 360° Email Protection that integrate with cloud-based email infrastructure and work with secure email gateways to provide a full circle of business email protection around your organization, your employees, and beyond your network perimeter to your customers.

The gaps in your email security

Traditional rule-based email security relies on people always playing catch up in a modern threat landscape where threats are constantly evolving and new rules need to be set. Without an automated and adaptive service like 360° email protection, your organization has gaps that create an opportunity for cybercriminals:

1) Secure email gateways can’t keep up

With the speed of evolving threats today and social engineering techniques commonly found in BEC attacks, email threats lack obvious threat signals such as malicious URLs and blacklisted IPs which means they get through undetected.

2) You can’t teach users to spot every attack

Phishing training is a good start towards people-centric email security but there is no indicator of trust inside the email post-delivery which means organizational security relies on the guesswork and vigilance of every single employee.

3) No control beyond your network boundary

Without DMARC configured cybercriminals can spoof your domain which looks like the email is sent from your email address. The consequences have both financial and reputational risks to your organization and your customers.

 It takes a number of layered solutions to fill the gaps in traditional rule-based email security.

Why is Red Sift 360° email protection the solution?

The 360° email protection suite is complementary to your Secure Email Gateway and automatically safeguards your domain against outbound fraud targeting your customers, partners and suppliers whilst defending against advanced inbound threats like business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing, and other targeted impersonation attacks.

The necessary modern security layers of 360° email protection are:

A preventative foundation

Traditional email gateways sit between the internet and your inbox scanning attachments and filtering email threats when they cross your network boundary.

With proactive defense

OnDMARC lets you actively block phishing attempts and secure your domain against email impersonation. This is via the speedy and correct implementation of DMARC.

Empowering people’s decisions

OnINBOX’s intelligent inbound email threat detection uses automated visual risk indicators inside every email for personalized endpoint protection and company-wide insight.
