More than 91% of cybercrime begins with an email – and employees receive ~200 emails daily. Paired with the prominence of social engineering attacks – including the use of malicious URLs using HTTPS, phishing attempts, new impersonation techniques, and cloud-based attacks focused on file-sharing services – the growing danger of making that one wrong click is very real.

Email is a favorite attack vector for distributing malware. Bad actors are continually adapting their techniques to improve their ROI. In the past year, FireEye has observed a shift from malicious attachments or code to malware-less scams like spear phishing emails wrapped in impersonation packages.

FireEye Email Security counters both breeds of threats. It not only blocks attachments weaponized with malware, but it also seeks and destroys fraudulent wire transfer requests, URL links to credential phishing sites, and other social engineering and impersonation techniques. Whatever the malicious tactic is, FireEye is quick to identify it and block it by leveraging first-hand intel on attacks and adversaries.

Frontline insights help us keep FireEye Email Security in lockstep with attackers, stopping threats with first-hand knowledge of attacks/attackers before they become more serious incidents – blocking not only malware and suspicious URLs, but also phishing and impersonation techniques.

FireEye Email Security is a full Secure Email Gateway. FireEye Email Security offers customers a strong defense through our attachment detonation, malicious URL discovery and impersonation detection. It’s differentiated from competitors because it provides advanced threat protection for outbound messages as well as inbound messages. It also provides custom YARA rules for both inbound and outbound messages.

FireEye Email Security’s high detection efficacy and low false positive rate minimizes organization’s operational costs. And with inline deployment, its ability to spot threats early, minimizes potential damage from incidents. This results in annual operating expense savings.
