ClickSMART from Fusemail
ClickSMART from Fusemail protects your network from malicious links in emails by scanning any URLs in real-time the moment, you click on it. If the path from the link is found to be malicious, ClickSMART can either block the website and a warning that proceeding could be harmful. This gives users the option to choose whether or not to continue.
Often seemingly innocent emails containing web links spam through spam and virus filters, however after it has been scanned and arrived in your inbox the web link contained in the email can become weaponised and is pointed to a Phishing site or to a website that can download malicious content to your computer.
A common email attack contains links to web pages that update after the email has arrived in your inbox. These web pages are programed to auto download viruses or Ransomware onto your network or ask for personal information such as bank cards or online banking details.
However by re-scanning URLs at the time they are clicked, ClickSMART protects you against links that become weaponised minutes, hours, days and even weeks after the email has arrived in your inbox.
ClickSMART adds another layer of security to your system by futher protecting your users and your network from threats like Phihsing, Spear Phishing and Ransomware.
ClickSMART is an add-on service fur Fusemail’s email security product SecureSMART.
Working in conjunction with SecureSMART, ClickSMART examines clean email messages for web links and replaces these links with a custom link back to the ClickSMART service. The email is then sent on to the recipient. When the recipient clicks a link, one of two procedures takes place.
If the original email message is still held in FuseMail’s system, ClickSMART retrieves the original message and rescans the entire content along with any web links.
- If the original email message is not available, ClickSMART scans the original web link.
- If the original message or web link is now considered to be malicious, then the user is warned of the risk, or blocked entirely from accessing the web page referenced by the URL – depending on the settings their administrator has chosen.
