With InboxGuard, it protects everyone from malicious emails that could put your organisation at risk.

Email inbox is the most dangerous place on the internet. It is the place where malicious hackers and cybercriminals try to gain access to your system.

Protect Staff and save your Business

Your email inbox is a prime target for cyber-attackers because it contains a wealth of personal information that can gain access to your system. They may use this information, such as account passwords or bank details, to gain control of your accounts and steal money or data. Even if you have strong passwords on all your accounts, cybercriminals may still use social engineering techniques like phishing emails or malware-infected attachments to gain access. To protect yourself, it's important to stay vigilant when dealing with emails and only open messages from trusted sources. Make sure you have an up-to-date antivirus program installed on all of your devices so that any malicious software can be detected and blocked before it can cause damage. Finally, never click on links in emails unless you are sure they are from a legitimate source.

Cybercriminals know

Cybercriminals know SEGs are ill-equipped to catch today's most sophisticated attacks. Whether it's malware automation or ready-made phishing kits sold on the dark web, modern hackers can quickly launch cyber attacks at scale, wrecking your cyber security.

Many SEGs cannot detect these attacks because they cannot analyse and observe user behaviour. For example, traditional SEGs cannot detect malicious activities, such as a user logging in from multiple locations or downloading large amounts of data. Without visibility into user behaviour, it is difficult for an organisation to know when a cyber attack is happening.

In addition, many SEGs can not detect advanced threats, such as polymorphic malware or zero-day exploits. These threats can easily bypass traditional signature-based detection methods, leaving organisations vulnerable and exposed. Many SEGs lack the resources to keep up with the ever-evolving threat landscape, making them ineffective at stopping modern cybercriminals. 

What is an SEG - Secure Email Gateways

Secure Email Gateways (SEGs) are an email security solution that sits inline on emails' paths from the public Internet to the corporate email server.

SEGs work in two ways. They validate an email's sender through domain authentication and sender reputation. And they try to validate its content using threat intelligence, antivirus, and content analysis tools.
