Legacy email security solutions rely on a 'good vs. bad' determination provided by third party data feeds, or internally via large-scale email traffic and data analysis. Because spear phishing attacks target specific individuals within an organization, the email link is usually unique, as is the target user. Therefore, no third party reputation data is available, nor is there enough data to analyze internally to make an accurate determination. If the determination is incorrect, the first targeted “patient-zero” individuals are sent directly to a site where credentials can be stolen, or malware can be downloaded to an endpoint. A single error can facilitate a costly and damaging cyber attack.
A new approach is required.
The Solution: Isolation
Menlo Security’s Phishing Isolation solution eliminates credential theft and drive-by exploits caused by email attacks. By integrating cloud-based Phishing Isolation with existing mail server infrastructure such as Exchange, Gmail, and Office 365, all email links can be transformed to pass through the Menlo Security Isolation Platform. When users click on an email link, they are 100% isolated from all malware threats, including ransomware. Websites can also be rendered in a read-only mode which prevents individuals from entering sensitive information into malicious web forms.
With their users safely isolated, administrators can monitor behavior statistics, and provide customizable time-of-click messages that help reinforce anti-phishing awareness training. Administrators can also define workflow policies for groups or individuals that determine if or when web input field restrictions can be relaxed. With zero dependency on on error-prone threat detection methods, such as data analytics, Menlo Security Phishing Isolation is the only email security solution that protects every email user the instant it’s deployed.
