URL Protection for your email - and why you need it!
Phishing Protection Add-on provides your organization with another layer of protection against ransomware and phishing attacks. It's done by stopping your users from being able to click on any urls that are deemed to be dangerous. Web links in emails are rewritten, which lets them be rescanned at the time of a click. This is a great addon to SpyderMail's email security.
One of the common types of zero-day attacks situations involved an email which seems innocent, and contains some web links. It passes through anti-spam scans, as well as virus filters. When your user gets the email (since it doesn't pose an "immediate" threat), the spammer can "weaponize" the link by pointing it to either a phishing site, or some type of malware delivery site..
Your user gets subjected to malicious attacks like malware, phishing or even ransomware. SpyderMail Phishing Protection Add-on will prevent these web links from ever getting through to your user - and in doing so, ensures the safety and security of your network.
How Phishing Protection Add-on Works
SpyderMail Phishing Protection Add-on works together with our email security service. Phishing Protection Add-on examines your user's incoming "clean" email for links to websites - and will replace them for a link back to the Phishing Protection Add-on Service. Your user then receives the email - but when they click on a link, one of two procedures will take place.
- If the original email is still held in our system, Phishing Protection Add-on will retrieve and rescan the entire content along with any web links.
- If the original email isn't available, Phishing Protection Add-on will scan the original web link.
If the original message or it's enclosed web link is now found to be malicious, your user i could be blocked from accessing that website, or perhaps warned, depending on which settings that you have chosen.
