Increased BEC and consumer phishing protection

Email fraud is rife – business email compromise (BEC) is costing companies billions, and consumer phishing is at an all-time high.  The majority of these email scams are also preventable.

Visibility of who is sending email across your email ecosystem allows you to authorise all legitimate senders and block email scams before they reach your employees, customers, and business partners.

Implemented with our other defences, you can:

  • Prevent CEO/CFO bank transfer attacks and W2 scams
  • Block malicious emails that spoof trusted domains before they reach your employees and customers
  • Protect your business partners from fraudulent emails that steal your corporate identity
