Block malicious, socially engineered emails as attackers attempt to exploit employee human weaknesses

Unlike traditional security products that detect malware propagated by malicious attachments or links, Social Engineering Protection analyzes parameters relating to authentication, domain reputation, message headers, and contextual indicators. This analysis determines factors such as:

  • Inconsistent sending history – such as the first email sent from this sender
  • Display name abuse – when an executive’s name is used in a personal email address
  • Spoofed domain names – which look similar to the company’s actual domain
