The new blended threats technology protects organizations from targeted attacks that use malicious embedded URL links in emails as the initial infection method. Harnessing the same malware detection technology used in the M86 Secure Web Gateway (SWG), M86 Security's Targeted Attacks Service scans emails for embedded URL links to potentially malicious websites as they are accessed.
The company's new cloud-based Targeted Attacks Service scans email links as they are accessed by the user, even if the message is continually forwarded to other recipients and regardless of the device used to access the email. M86 MailMarshal SEG, version 7, substitutes URL links in an email message in order to redirect them through the Targeted Attack Service when a user clicks on the link. With this approach, Web pages will be proactively scanned for malicious code as the user is trying to access them, differentiating it from other solutions that only scan physical email attachments at the gateway with signature-based AV scanners.
M86 Security's content security technology is capable of understanding a file structure, unpacking files and uncovering any deeply embedded malware. It also enables organizations to filter, monitor and track company assets to comply with regulations, prevent data loss and ensure customer and staff privacy.
