Our Advanced Threat Protection detects known and unknown threats in email (phishing attacks) that use malicious attachments and URLs. These types of advanced threats include polymorphic malware, weaponized documents, and credential phish – they are particularly difficult to catch because some (like credential phish) do not contain malware or are not malicious at the time of delivery.
Essentials scans all your email traffic and analyzes all threats that contain attachments and URLs – this gives use a broad view of the email threat landscape. The quality and quantity of our threat intelligence is key to our product efficacy. This, in part, is due to the customers we have and the email threat intel that we derive from the traffic we see. We have a threat graph of 700B+ data points with intel across email, networks, social media, and mobile apps (no other vendor has this).
We blocks threats from reaching people – whether that’s quarantining the email at the time-of-delivery so it never reaches the inbox or redirecting the user to a block page when they click (time-of-click) on a rewritten malicious URL. We track clicks, so we can see if a person has clicked on a rewritten URL that has turned malicious.
And finally, we can apply the same level of protection to your social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. These accounts can be monitored for unauthorized changes and malicious links. You can even apply additional corporate policies to these accounts to scan and remove inappropriate content such as racist or abusive content or profanity.
