It’s Time to Rethink Email Security


Despite all the investments that enterprises have put into email security over recent years, the truth is that there are still too many threats making it into user inboxes. For internal SOC teams, the situation is untenable as the threat landscape continues to shift and organizations race to transition to a cloud-based email architecture.

At the same time, regulators continue to raise the bar, pushing enterprises to more closely monitor and enforce data protection policies. This, along with managing a variety of vendors and security tools that lack interoperability, leaves SOC teams both overburdened and exhausted.

Fortra Is Your Email Security Ally

Since keeping the bad at bay is the rallying cry of the day, enterprises need comprehensive protection that spans the entire lifecycle of threats from the staging of email-borne threats outside your organization to active threats landing in the inbox. Fortra’s Advanced Email Security solutions do just this—whether you are operating in the cloud, in a hybrid environment, or on-prem through a complete solution, we can help you solve your toughest email security challenges.

Content-based threats are a major piece of the puzzle because they don’t only exist on the surface, but can be deeply embedded in inbound messages, including files, URLs, attachments, images, etc. In addition, outbound data loss can lead to leaks or sensitive information leaving your organization, which can result in compliance failures and the loss of confidential proprietary data.

Identity deception techniques, such as spear phishing attacks and brand and executive impersonation, are specifically designed to provide threat actors easy access to user inboxes. And due to a lack of visibility and detection of advanced threats in many legacy security controls, Secure Email Gateways are not attuned to stopping these types of identity threats, having a negative impact on good communication flow. These threats are delivered in a variety of ways, making them increasingly difficult to identify, and user-reported threat indicators are not enough to stop them.
