However, cybercriminals use more and more sophisticated attacks: polymorphic viruses, perfect imitations of real institutions e-mails or extremely reliable personalization of content.
Email Security Gateway is much more than just anti-spam – it provides advanced anti-malware, built-in DLP data protection mechanism, sender verification by SPF, DKIM and DMARC, built-in encryption mechanisms….
It enables you to:
Secure the most vulnerable and at the same time most common communication channel in your company against daily attacks.
Block advanced malware or phishing attempts sent as part of targeted attacks.
Protect company data – by verifying that messages come from the right sources and by filtering the content sent through DLP policies.

END USER TRAINING
Human has always been the weakest link in the chain of cyberattacks. He clicks on the attachment, enters the data or otherwise enables the attack. Users’ awareness of cyber threats is more valuable today than ever.
Today, cyberattacks are a combination of technology and psychology – more and more frequent are:
- attempts to obtain login details by impersonating a supervisor,
- malicious attachments embedded in credible-looking e-mails,
- malware downloaded as soon as you open a page of the temptation to exfiltrate data for financial gain.
The workshops are based on the need to be vigilant in cyberspace. They focus on bringing the so-called TTP – Tactics, Techniques & Procedures – a set of behaviors and methods from which attack patterns consists of.
Trainings are conducted in a personalized way – a different agenda is selected for the IT team, another for accountants – based on possible attack scenarios. Main topics include password management, recognizing email attacks, and computer hijacking by malware.
When market leaders opt for Cybersecurity Awareness programs – consider joining their ranks.
