Is Email Your Largest Security Vulnerability? Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection Can Help!

What would you say is your largest security vulnerability?  In a recent study sponsored by MalwareBytes and Osterman Research, 31% of ransomware attacks were via links in email and 28% were due to attachments.  That is 59% of attacks originate in email.

Traditional Anti-Virus and SPAM protection don’t go far enough to mitigate these risks.

Modern email security requires intelligent software that can identify:

  • Abnormal User Behavior – Your users have patterns and most of the time, malware doesn’t follow that pattern.  With machine learning, intelligent software can learn your patterns and identify, alert, and block behavior that doesn’t fit your users behavior.
  • Advanced Attacks – Attacks rarely target a single entity.  By understanding the operations of millions of users, advanced threat analysis software can detect and track attacks as they form.  Giving them the ability to see when and where attacks are being staged and prevent them.
  • The Right Alerts – Modern protection solutions need to be able to sift through the mountains of logs data, learn based on user actions, and present relevant data in useful manners that reduce “alert fatigue” and allow security teams to react appropriately to threats.
