Leverage AI and machine learning to stop email fraud
Proofpoint Advanced BEC Defense powered by NexusAI is designed to stop a wide variety of email fraud. This includes payment redirect and supplier invoicing fraud from compromised accounts. For these types of threats, you need a more sophisticated detection technique, since there’s often no malicious payload to detect.
With Advanced BEC Defense, you get a detection engine that’s powered by AI and machine learning. And it’s specifically designed to find and stop BEC attacks. It analyzes multiple message attributes, such as:
- Message header data
- Sender’s IP address (x-originating IP and reputation)
- Message body for urgency and words/phrases, and more
It then determines whether that message is a BEC threat. And it detects various attacker tactics, such as reply-to pivots, use of malicious IPs, and use of impersonated supplier domains.
Advanced BEC Defense also gives you granular visibility into BEC threat details. It provides the BEC theme (e.g., supplier invoicing, gift card and payroll redirect), observations about why the message was suspicious, and message samples. These key details help your security team better understand and communicate about the attack.
Get actionable visibility into your greatest risk – your people
Modern email threats exploit human nature. They often rely on the person being targeted to activate the attack. Proofpoint provides visibility and forensics into who your very attacked people (VAPs) are, how they’re being attacked, whether they click on or report phishing, how they respond to simulated phishing, and whether they are compromised. Use these insights to apply adaptive security controls around your users to reduce the risk of a breach.
