Email Fraud Defense

Email Protection

When it comes to security, it is common practice to authenticate devices, applications, and users. We even authenticate our phone calls with caller ID. If a phone number is not saved in your phone for example, you’re unlikely to answer the call, let alone fall for a scam from a phone number you don’t recognize. As the number one threat vector to businesses, email must be authenticated to restore trust to business communications. Proofpoint Email Fraud Defense gives you the visibility, tools, and services to authorize legitimate email and block fraudulent messages before they reach the inbox.

Increased Email Fraud and Consumer Phishing Protection

Email scam is rife – it is costing companies billions and phishing attacks are at an all-time high. Fraudsters use various tactics to send these malicious emails and change their tactics regularly to evade solutions that can only stop some email attacks. These tactics are:

  • Domain spoofing: "Company <"
  • Display name spoofing: "Company <"
  • Lookalike domain spoofing: "Company <"
