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 and shortened format, 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.
Most advanced threats arrive by email in the form of URLs linked to credential-phishing sites, fraudulent wire transfer requests, and weaponized file attachments. Email’s highly targeted and customizable nature allows cybercriminals to successfully exploit it, making it the primary channel for cybercrime. In the past year, Trellix has observed a shift from malicious attachments or code to malicious URLs and malware-less scams like spear phishing emails wrapped in impersonation packages.
Trellix 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. Frontline insights help us keep Trellix 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.
Trellix Email Security is a full Secure Email Gateway. Trellix 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. Trellix Email Security provides native API-based advanced threat scanning for both Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. Trellix Email Security’s high detection efficacy and low false positive rate minimizes organization’s operational costs
