Symantec has introduced Email Threat Isolation, which blocks advanced email attacks on end-user devices by helping to protect users against spear phishing, credential theft, account takeover and ransomware attacks.
Symantec is the first and currently the only vendor to offer a complete and integrated email security solution with threat isolation technology for enterprise email, which protects customers from the kind of sophisticated email attacks that are so prevalent in the cloud generation.
Email Threat Isolation takes prevention to the next level by ensuring suspicious links to risky web pages are isolated, allowing safe access. This capability gives customers elevated levels of protection against advanced email attacks by creating a secure remote execution environment between users and malicious content.
Symantec is the only vendor to offer risk-level based isolation policies to send web traffic from suspicious links to this remote environment, which confines all malicious activity and only sends a safe visual representation of the content down to the user. In addition, Symantec Email Threat Isolation can render such sites in read-only mode which prevents unsuspecting employees from disclosing sensitive information such as corporate credentials.
Phishing and ransomware attacks are constantly evolving and are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Isolation represents a new approach to defending against these insidious threats and is particularly useful to defend high-value targets. Symantec is the first to integrate threat isolation into its email security solution. Symantec is bringing innovation to this critical control point, to significantly reduce reliance on employee behaviour, and give IT administrators greater control over their email environment....
