Cyren Cloud Security update stops imposter phishing, cryptocurrency mining
The release of Cyren Cloud Security 4.3 introduces a raft of new functionality to further protect web and email users and enhance their experience through Single Sign-On (SSO) and other improvements. New protection highlights include:
Imposter phishing defense
New email security features include detection enhancements to stop targeted “imposter” emails, where a criminal might research your organization and replace the displayed sender name with that of your CEO, perhaps (if you work in the Finance Department or HR) requesting tax records on all the employees or a funds transfer. For more on “Business Email Compromise” and how to stop it, check out this in-depth blog.
Protection from cryptocurrency mining
With 2018 declared by some the “Year of Cryptomining Malware,” Cyren is introducing specific detection, protection and reporting for this emerging category of threat.
