Business Email Compromise (BEC) protection

BEC, including CEO fraud, is a fast growing threat to your organization. Dubbed “the 12 billion dollar scam” by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), BEC is hard to detect because usually no attachments or URLs are being used. Smart Protection for Office 365 looks at who, what, where, when and why of an email, and:

  • Catches BEC attacks by using artificial intelligence, including expert system and machine learning, to examine email header, content, and authorship.
  • Uses unique Writing Style DNA technology to authenticate incoming email from an executive against a trained machine learning model of that executive’s writing.

It also leverages the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ to correlate web, email, file, and domain registries and identify attacker infrastructures before they are launched.

Protection beyond Office 365 email

Two-for-one protection

Email Security Advanced

Email Security Advanced is an enterprise-class secure email gateway service that uses an optimum blend of cross-generational threat techniques to stop phishing, ransomware, BEC, spam, and other advanced email threats before they reach your network.

Cloud App Security

It provides a second layer of protection at the email service layer. It protects incoming and internal Office 365 email from advanced malware and other threats. And it guards against threats, enforcing compliance on other email, cloud file sharing, and collaboration services, including Gmail™, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Teams.

Cloud App Security integrates directly with Office 365 and other services using APIs, maintaining all user functionality without rerouting email traffic or setting up a web proxy.

In 2018, Cloud App Security stopped 8.9 million high-risk threats that weren’t caught by Office 365 security.
