Email Security

Novel Threats are Getting Through

Email is the connective tissue that keeps a business running. It also presents cyber-criminals with the ultimate gateway into an organization.

Traditional security controls are confined to the border and analyze emails in isolation and at a single point in time. This approach fails to spot the weak indicators of a ‘clean’ email attack that seeks to take the conversation offline, or solicit a fraudulent payment.

Powered by Darktrace Cyber AI, Antigena Email catches advanced email threats that others let through.

AI-Powered Email Security

A new approach to email security uses AI to develop a comprehensive knowledge of the ‘pattern of life’ of every user and correspondent, building an evolving understanding of the ‘human’ within email communications. The technology learns a unique sense of ‘self’ for every internal and external user, analyzing both inbound and outbound communications together with lateral, internal-to-internal communications.

This understanding drastically improves the system’s accuracy, making it more targeted and effective than legacy tools. By treating recipients as dynamic individuals and peers rather than mere email addresses, AI-powered email security solutions uniquely spot subtle deviations from ‘the norm’ that reveal seemingly benign emails to be unmistakably malicious.

This approach has been crystallized in the form of Antigena Email, Darktrace’s email security product that accurately identifies and responds to the full range of advanced email attacks, including:

  • Advanced spear phishing
  • Spoofing and solicitation
  • Employee account takeover
  • Supply chain attack
