In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• Whilst competitors offer point solutions to tackle data loss over email, Egress Intelligent Email Security utilizes machine learning and advance DLP to prevent the misdirected email and ensure that sensitive information has the correct levels of security applied to it. Egress Intelligent Email Security is more advanced and more effective than static rules-based DLP solutions, which can lead to click fatigue. Egress’ solutions avoid this by utilizing machine learning to only prompt users when they are about to send an email to the wrong recipient. Egress is also less admin intensive, as the machine learning solution can actively learn about users’ activity to build a pattern of behavior, requiring less administration than setting up and maintaining static rules.

• Customer testimony: Paul Wilkins, Head of Global IT at Envision Pharma Group “We were really impressed with Egress’ solutions – especially the AI that’s built in. Prevent’s ability to learn and recognize behaviors was something we were pleasantly surprised by. Since we rolled it out, we’ve not had a single security incident involving misdirected email.”

Brief Overview

Unlike any other solution on the market, Egress Intelligent Email Security prevents insider data breaches in two key areas:

1. Prevention of human-activated email threats

Egress Prevent uses contextual machine learning and advanced DLP to detect when employees are about to accidentally or intentionally leak data to stop breaches before they happen.

The technology inspects all email content to make sure the message body and attachments are suitable for all the recipients included. Helpful prompts encourage data breach prevention by urging users to correct mistakes before they happen, while blocking risky emails from being sent altogether. In addition, comprehensive admin reporting dashboards provide statistics to highlight security threats.

2. Protection of sensitive information

Egress Protect offers government and industry-certified email encryption, providing total control over shared information so that users can effectively secure sensitive data and prevent unauthorised access.

The solution integrates seamlessly within existing workflows and uses intelligent machine learning to understand the level of risk to sensitive data and provide an easy-to-use, flexible email and file encryption tool that delivers the highest level of security.
The solution also utilises network intelligence to provide a frictionless recipient experience, making it easier for authorised users to access data while also guarding against unauthorised access. In doing so, the technology supports high user adoption and scalability, while reducing risk to sensitive data.

3. Detection of insider risk
Insider threat is a growing issue which affects most modern organizations, yet many organizations are unaware of the true scale of the problem, due to holes in their reporting processes. Email is a blind spot for many organizations, which is particularly concerning when typically, every employee within a business has access to email. Egress’ vision is to transform organizations’ approach to insider threat detection, with Egress Investigate.
