US Signal announces the addition of an advanced email security service to its growing portfolio of managed security services. Advanced Email Security is designed to detect and stop email-borne cyber threats before they can reach end users’ inboxes. It can be used with Microsoft 365, Microsoft Exchange, Open-Xchange, Gmail, or any cloud email service, and is SOC2 compliant, HIPAA certified, GDPR compliant, and CCPA compliant.
“Email is a standard means of communications for most businesses, so it’s critical for companies to keep this channel secure,” explains Trevor Bidle, Chief Information Security Officer. “Nonetheless, research continues to show that email threats are among the leading causes of data breaches. Advanced Email Security offers a much-needed solution to help organizations to minimize, if not entirely eliminate, these threats.”
Proactive, Multi-technology Solution
Combining multiple scanning engines, in-depth threat intelligence, and a combination of best-in-class security technologies, US Signal’s Advanced Email Security provides comprehensive protection against the broad range of email threats. Among them: spam, phishing, spoofing, business email compromises (BECs), advanced persistent threats (APTs), and even the nefarious zero-day malware attacks that are behind the majority of data breaches.
Hardware visibility, combined with software agility, enables Advanced Email Security to see what other security solutions miss. The solution recursively unpacks embedded files and URLs and separately analyzes them with dynamic and static detection engines. This enables it to detect advanced evasion techniques used to hide malicious content, preventing malware and other email threats that make it past conventional defenses.
In addition, Advanced Email Security leverages proprietary software algorithms that examine code at the CPU level. This allows it to act earlier in the attack chain to block exploits before malware is released. The solution also uses machine-intelligence-enhanced Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC), DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record checks.
Legacy email security technologies, such as sandboxing, assess threats reactively. This limits how much traffic can be scanned and delays malware verdicts by up to 20 minutes. The technology in Advanced Email Security, conversely, scales to cover 100% of the email traffic. This shortens scanning time to a maximum of 30 seconds with verdicts delivered almost immediately.
Unlike other email security solutions, Advanced Email Security also stops threats delivered via internal email addresses, preventing malware from spreading laterally throughout an organization. Yet another unique feature of the solution is that an expert intelligence team continuously monitors all customer traffic, analyzes malicious intent, and provides ongoing reporting and 24/7 support.
