In today's digital age, organisations face numerous cybersecurity challenges, with data breaches and unauthorised access posing significant threats. To protect sensitive information and maintain regulatory compliance, businesses must implement robust security measures. Egress Defend offers advanced data protection and helps organisations defend against potential threats.

In this blog post, we will explore the key features and benefits of Egress Defend, highlighting why it is an essential tool for safeguarding your valuable data along with a great opportunity for you to learn how to further secure your organisation.


What Is Egress Defend?

Egress Defend is an innovative data security platform designed to provide organisations with complete control over their data and ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability. This solution offers a wide range of features, including encryption, classification, access control, and real-time monitoring, enabling businesses to mitigate the risks associated with data breaches and leaks effectively. By studying patterns in email behaviour, it can identify unusual activities that may indicate advanced phishing threats without malicious attachments. This allows Defend to detect and mitigate sophisticated phishing attacks that may have evaded traditional email security measures.


Key Features and Benefits of Egress Defend

Egress Defend offers a range of powerful features that enhance email security and protect organisations against various cyber threats. Let's delve into each feature in detail:

  • Protects against sophisticated phishing attacks that evade existing email security: By studying patterns and behaviours in email communications, it can detect anomalies and indicators of phishing attempts that may have evaded traditional email security measures.

  • Protects against ransomware by detecting email attacks early in the cyber kill chain: Ransomware attacks often begin with malicious emails that carry infected attachments or links. Egress Defend acts as an early warning system by detecting these email attacks at the initial stages of the cyber kill chain.

  • Detects anomalous behaviours: Defend leverages intelligent technologies such as social graph, machine learning and natural language processing to detect anomalous behaviours in email communications. It examines various factors like sender reputation, email content, recipient relationships, and communication patterns to identify suspicious activities that may indicate potential threats.

  • Engages and empowers users with color-coded, contextual warnings embedded in emails: To enhance user awareness and promote secure email practices, Egress Defend provides color-coded and contextual warnings directly within email messages. These warnings alert users about potentially risky or suspicious emails, empowering them to make informed decisions and exercise caution when interacting with suspicious content.

  • M-SOAR capabilities enable incident investigation and remediation: Defend offers Incident Response and Management capabilities, commonly referred to as M-SOAR (Mailbox-Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response). This feature enables efficient incident investigation and remediation by automating key processes and workflows. It helps security teams respond promptly to potential threats and mitigate any security incidents effectively.

  • Augments existing email security or the native security provided by your email platform: Defend seamlessly integrates with existing email security solutions or the native security provided by your email platform. It complements and augments these existing security measures, providing an additional layer of protection against advanced email threats. This integration ensures a comprehensive and robust email security infrastructure.

In summary, Egress Defend integrates intelligent technologies, user engagement, and incident response capabilities to fortify email security, disarm phishing attacks and ransomware, and empower proactive threat mitigation. By complementing existing security measures, it provides a comprehensive strategy for safeguarding email communications and sensitive data, ensuring a robust defence against evolving threats.
