Microsoft 365

Email Security

With 258 million corporate users, Microsoft 365 is the #1 target for cyberattacks.

93 percent of all network breaches include a phishing or spear-phishing attack.

Predictive AI technology

Unmatched Threat Intelligence

Email security is provided via our partners a Vade. With over 100 billion emails scanned per day, their AI engine continually learns from the latest Microsoft 365 email threats and decimates dynamic phishing, ransomware, and spear-phishing attacks.

For the most part, the perimeters of vigilant organizations are reasonably tight. Firewalls are in place, servers are patched, and physical security is in place. However, email is a gaping hole in your network defenses.
Email is the vector for virtually all the bad things that keep you up at night.
What’s worse is that cybercriminals are using email to target the weakest link in an organization’s cybersecurity chain: humans.
If you think that your organization is safe from email-borne attacks because you have enabled Office 365 email security add-ons like Exchange Online Protection (EOP) or Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), you need to think again. While these security tools are effective at blocking massive spam waves and known threats, they will not reliably stop highly targeted phishing, spear phishing or zero-day attacks.

Email security is clearly broken.

The problem is

twofold:

Most email “security” systems are really just glorified spam filters. They were designed to stop known mass email attacks. The underlying architecture of these solutions isn’t suitable to catch zero-day threats or one-off spear phishing emails.

Many employees will click on or respond to a well-crafted phishing or spear-phishing email if it lands in their inbox. Despite education efforts, 20 to 30 percent of recipients open standard phishing messages and 12 to 20 percent of those click on any enclosed phishing links. These already high rates more than double when looking at spear-phishing emails. consequatur.

Artificial Intelligence

Vade for Office 365 blocks advanced attacks from the first email thanks to machine learning models that perform real-time behavioral analysis of the entire email, including any URLs and attachments. Vade leverages data from the 500 million inboxes it protects to continually fine-tune these models and ensure a high precision rate.

We provide best-in-class defense against the most

dangerous threats:

Vade crawls the URL and page in real time, following any redirections in order to determine whether the final page is fraudulent. In addition to the content, we analyze the context of the URL/page—when the message is received and any time a user clicks. Admins can receive alerts when users click on links even after they’ve been warned they’re malicious.

Going beyond scanning attachments, machine learning algorithms perform a comprehensive analysis of the origin, content, and context of emails and attachments. As a result, the solution detects malware and ransomware attacks well before anti-virus and sandboxing technologies.
