Effective protection against spear-phishing, targeted and other advanced threats.
Email has again become the choice forum for cyber attack with one in 131 emails sent in 2016 containing malicious content.
For the cyber-criminal, not only is it a method that’s been proven to work, email attacks do not rely on exploiting a weakness in technology but rather on conning recipients into revealing personal details or accessing malicious links.
Email remains the most common and widespread source of cybercriminal targeted attacks, with the number of attacks steadily growing.
Conventional signature-based antivirus strategies can prove ineffective against this type of attack, and many security solutions do not deliver the visibility and 'rich' intelligence required to detect and remediate advanced attacks.
Symantec Advanced Threat Protection: Email effectively blocks new and emerging threats,
incorporating multi-layered technologies and intelligence, to deliver the most effective protection against spear-phishing, targeted attacks, and other advanced threats, whether a link is contained within the body of an email or as part of an attachment.
Evaluates links in real-time (within seconds) to block emails containing malicious links before the email is delivered.
Links in delivered emails are rewritten to point to Symantec servers, with real-time evaluation performed when a link is clicked.
... functionality addresses links with time-based delay, multiple redirects, shortened URLs, and hijacked URLs.
Suspicious emails are safely evaluated in a testing environment and securely disposed of, evaluated in a physical machine based environment to uncover 'VM-aware' threats.
Incorporates detailed feedback of attacks categorised according to type, including URL and file data.
Increasingly sophisticated, targeting attacks are becoming more difficult to detect and block than more traditional forms.
In 2015, Symantec ATP: Email intercepted more than 1.15 billion messages containing malicious links.
Evaluates links in real-time, whether within email body or an attachment.
Traces links to final destination, tracking via multiple redirects, shortened URLs, hijacked URLs, and implementing time-based delay bypass detection.
Downloads files at destination URLs for investigative analysis.
Provides high level of visibility through detention of a greater number of IOCs (Indicators of Compromise).
