Email remains one of the most dangerous attack vectors in the enterprise. By spoofing an email or hijacking a trusted account, cyber-criminals can trick users into wiring millions out of the business or triggering a ransomware attack with a single click. Yet despite email being the entry point for 94% of attacks, traditional security controls continue to fall short.
Whether native or third-party, traditional email controls work by analyzing emails in isolation and at a single point in time, correlating them against blacklists, signatures, and pre-definitions of bad. While this approach helps with spam and similarly indiscriminate ‘drive-by’ campaigns, it invariably fails to spot the weak indicators of a novel email attack.
