ADVANCED BEC DEFENSE
Defend against email and supplier fraud
Stop a wider variety of email fraud, including payment redirect and supplier invoicing fraud from compromised accounts. For these types of threats, you need a more sophisticated detection technique, since there’s often no malicious payload to detect.
With Advanced BEC Defense, you get a detection engine that’s powered by AI and machine learning. And it’s specifically designed to find and stop BEC attacks. It analyzes multiple message attributes, such as:
- Message header data
- Sender’s IP address (x-originating IP and reputation)
- Message body for urgency and words/phrases, and more
It then determines whether that message is a BEC threat. And it detects various attacker tactics, such as reply-to pivots, use of malicious IPs, and use of impersonated supplier domains.
Advanced BEC Defense also gives you granular visibility into BEC threat details. It provides the BEC theme (e.g., supplier invoicing, gift card, payroll redirect), observations about why the message was suspicious, and message samples. These key details help your security team better understand and communicate about the attack.
Detect and block advanced malware
Analyze email with our multilayered content analysis, reputation analysis, and sandboxing. Detect email with malicious URLs or attachments. And block ransomware and polymorphic malware. Re-writing URLs protects your users on any network and device and helps detect if a message has been weaponized after delivery.
Identify risky users
We help you identify your Very Attacked People (VAPs). And we provide full visibility into targeted attacks and your human attack surface, so that you know who is posing a risk to your organization. Through our executive summary dashboard, you can see forensic details of each attack campaign. What’s more, you get actionable insights, and you can prioritize and mitigate risk by implementing adaptive controls for your risky users.
Automatically Pull malicious emails with one click
You can remove phishing emails containing URLs poisoned post-delivery or unwanted emails from internal accounts that are compromised. And it can be done with one click or automatically, even if emails were forwarded or received by other users.
