Adaptive Threat Detection
Threat Intelligence Alone Isn’t Enough
Legacy email security products rely on outdated, inaccurate, and inadequate threat detection models that put your organization at risk. Antiquated good/bad techniques struggle to identify the impersonation emails in your CFO’s mailbox or to determine when a compromised account sends URLs to credential theft sites or attachments with embedded malware to all of your customers.
Such technology deficiencies have been covered up by blaming users for perceived careless behavior when in fact, employees are critical to protecting against business email compromise, impersonation, brand lookalikes, and advanced business service spoofing attacks.
Detect Every Type of Threat
GreatHorn’s dynamic threat detection recognizes all types of email-borne threats—widespread malware, emergent attack patterns, and highly targeted phishing attempts—by employing a variety of threat detection techniques that can’t be replicated by legacy email security solutions.
Our proactive approach to threat detection understands your communication patterns so we can identify the anomalies that signal threat—a giant leap forward from the reactive approach employed by other tools.
Adaptive Threat Analytics
Instead of relying solely on known malicious content, GreatHorn’s Adaptive Threat Analytics quickly and automatically learns the legitimate communication patterns specific to your organization, making it easy to spot the anomalous emails, attachments, and links that typify suspicious content.
GreatHorn’s proprietary risk and reputation analysis expands threat detection beyond known malicious threats to include highly suspicious emails based on multiple vectors, keeping your organization and employees safer than ever before.
RELATIONSHIP STRENGTH: Strength of a sender’s individual relationship to the recipient, as well as a “friends of friends” system that accounts for the sender’s overall relationship with others in the recipient’s organization
SPOOFING LIKELIHOOD: Analysis for employee display name spoofs, domain spoofs, and domain look-alikes, including comparison against known email addresses, executive impersonation tactics, and email authentication standards
TECHNICAL FINGERPRINT: Sophisticated analysis of domain reputation, sending IP, and header information, including determining variations in expected authentication results for DMARC, DKIM, and SPF
CONTENT ANALYSIS: Deep content inspection based on keywords, regular expressions (RegEx), attachments, and URLs, to identify common spear phishing tactics—wire transfer and W2 requests, credential theft attacks, business service impersonations—all without storing the content or the mail
COMMUNICATION PATTERNS: Establishes an understanding of communication patterns unique to a specific individual and a specific organization, such as email frequency, volume, recipients, sending patterns and more
Community Threat Intelligence
A phishing attack isn’t the only threat on the block. Traditional malware and malicious links, zero-day threats, links to recently compromised sites with otherwise good reputations, or links that are only active for a small window of time remain a challenge, despite existing email security tools.
GreatHorn’s Community Threat Intelligence combines traditional threat intelligence with our own active data set to identify risks before they can do damage. Combined with our Adaptive Threat Analytics, GreatHorn Email Security ensures comprehensive protection against all threats.
ZERO-DAY THREAT IDENTIFICATION: Identification of emerging threat patterns using data from millions of emails within the GreatHorn community – typically more quickly than traditional threat intelligence feeds
COMMUNITY THREAT DATA: Community-sourced data on new and existing threats based both on automated collection and analysis of threat patterns and on proactive reports from GreatHorn Reporter
THREAT INTELLIGENCE: Malicious URL and malicious file detection using both third-party and proprietary threat intelligence sources
The Myth of 100% Threat Prevention
Based on data from millions of analyzed threat vectors, GreatHorn identifies malware, malicious links, and real-world phishing attacks more rapidly and accurately than any other solution, particularly those that combine social engineering techniques with email spoofing.
But we all know that vendors who claim 100% detection/prevention will not be able to live up to this promise. At GreatHorn, we’ll prevent more threats from reaching your inbox, but we’ll also provide a layered defense strategy with End User Protection and Integrated Incident Response—to ensure that you are fully protected throughout the email lifecycle.
