Global 500 Healthcare Study Blocks Advanced Email Attacks


This case study of a Global 500 healthcare company is based on a survey of Agari customers by TechValidate, a third-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

The Challenge

The profiled healthcare company evaluated and ultimately selected Fortra's Cloud Email Protection to deploy advanced threat protection for email security.

Use Case

They use Proofpoint as their existing Secure Email Gateway and they chose Cloud Email Protection to shield themselves from:

  • Spear phishing
  • Business email compromise/executive spoofing
  • Ransomware
  • Spam


The surveyed healthcare company achieved the following results with Cloud Email Protection:

  • Prevented advanced email-based attacks that are currently bypassing existing security
  • Prevented data breaches initiated via email
  • Reduced costs of investigating suspicious messages

Rated Fortra’s detection and prevention capabilities as follows:

  • Advanced email attacks: Better than the competition
  • Impostor based attacks: Better than the competition
  • Incident response and forensics: Better than the competition

We were able to identify and block advanced email attacks that SEGs missed by using Cloud Email Protection. By using a second vendor for inbound malicious email detection, we reduced the risks for our company.
