URL Protection for Email
There are approximately 215 Billion emails sent every day, and nearly two out of three emails are spam. As cyber crime increases email is the first security gap targeted by attackers.
Fortunately there are security solutions available to help protect your business against these threats including Email Security Phishing Protection from VIPRE providing URL protection for businesses.
Email Security Phishing Protection
Email Security Phishing Protection from VIPRE automatically 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, Phishing Protection 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 programmed 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, Phishing Protection protects you against links that become weaponised minutes, hours, days and even weeks after the email has arrived in your inbox.
Phishing Protection adds another layer of security to your system by further protecting your users and your network from threats like Phishing, Spear Phishing and Ransomware.
Working in conjunction with VIPRE Email Security Cloud, Phishing Protection examines clean email messages for web links and replaces these links with a custom link back to the Phishing Protection service. The email is then sent on to the recipient. When the recipient clicks a link, one of two procedures takes place.
