Using Email Phishing Security to Block Phishing Attacks

Best Practices for Blocking Evasive Phishing Attacks

Organizations should move from a gateway-based single-pass inspection model to a layered email phishing security model that includes continuous email monitoring and detection at the inbox to effectively combat today’s phishing and malware threats.

The prevailing email phishing security architecture in most organizations has not kept pace with the challenges introduced by cloud email platforms and evasive attacks. Email-borne phishing, BEC and fraud threats continue to avoid detection and land in user mailboxes. Regardless of how well employees are trained, they still fall victim to these scams, increasing the risk of data breaches.

Inbox Detection and Response provides an automated and adaptive layer of cybersecurity where it is needed most - right in the mailbox. Organizations are advised to choose an IDR solution that is not-invasive and deploys seamlessly for both IT admins and users. Such Inbox Detection & Response solutions leverage the industry shift to email platforms like Office 365 and Gmail to scan every message for threats and anomalous behaviors post-delivery and, when a threat is identified, automatically performing “claw back” of suspicious messages from all impacted inboxes.

Not only is this approach more effective than the traditional single-pass inspection model, but it also alleviates the labor-intensive process of investigating, containing, responding to, and remediating malicious emails by leveraging user input in an automated way.
