Protecting Email from Evasive Malware

Businesses face a constantly increasing number of email-based attacks, and secure email gateways (SEG) are not always able to detect them. Augmenting your SEG with advanced malware protection is critical.

Cybercriminals continue to use email as a primary attack vector. The sophistication of these attacks is continually evolving, and the associated malware has become quite capable of evading most security systems. Security personnel is often left blind—unable to see these attacks. This leaves organizations vulnerable to a serious data breach. To combat these numerous email-based assaults, it’s crucial for companies to augment their SEG with a comprehensive solution that is specifically designed to detect the most advanced and evasive forms of malware.

Lastline is quick and easy to deploy. It’s already integrated with leading SEG products, and advanced malware analysis can be enabled in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, deploying Lastline sensors by means of a network tap enables monitoring of SMTP traffic without requiring any integration with other products.
