Trend Micro is committed to supporting your journey to the cloud. Our Hosted Email Security (HES), a cloud-based email gateway solution is an example of this commitment. The latest HES version has advanced targeted attack protection and anti-ransomware. It also offers you enhanced security for Microsoft Office 365 mailboxes.
At zero additional cost, HES comes with many new features, including:
Spear-phishing is highly targeted phishing aimed at specific individuals or groups within an organization. According to TrendLabs, 91% of targeted attacks involve spear-phishing emails. The recent devastating data breaches that victimized millions of users (Target and JP Morgan for example) were mostly caused by targeted emails, a.k.a. spear-phishing.
In addition to larger enterprises, many small to mid-size businesses are being targeted because they may be a “backdoor” gateway into larger corporations. Also, smaller enterprises are usually an easier target because they typically have smaller IT staffs and less security infrastructure in place. Having a strong email security solution that can protect your employees from targeted attacks is essential to keeping your business safe, regardless of its size.
Trend Micro HES leverages the following technologies to combat spear-phishing:
2. Advanced Threat Scan Engine (ATSE)
3. Cloud Sandbox
Unlike other vendors, all of the above capabilities, including the cloud sandbox, are included in the HES base offer at no extra charge. This is especially beneficial for medium-sized to small-sized businesses that need more advanced protection but may not be able to afford enterprise-grade protection.
Ransomware attacks—in which malware attempts to encrypt your critical data files and demands payment in exchange for the decryption key—are a growing problem for businesses of all sizes. Using ATSE and cloud sandbox technologies (see above), HES provides advanced capabilities to detect ransomware at the email gateway. More about Trend Micro’s anti-ransomware can be found here.
Protecting Microsoft Office 365 email
For companies moving to Microsoft Office 365 and needing advanced protection, Microsoft offers sandbox and email encryption as two separate add-ons.
HES offers another option for customers that includes sandbox and email encryption in the base offer with no extra charge. The sandbox technology uses proven, top rated Deep Discovery technology.
Also, Trend Micro’s antispam ranks #1 in real-world tests. Adding HES to your cyber defense will give you the best spam protection for your Microsoft Office 365 mailboxes.
