Email Security

Laptop image

Targeted and sophisticated email attacks is the number one threat resulting in cybersecurity breaches in the corporate world. Whether it is phishing, business email compromise or a ransomware attack, these attacks are using emails to trick a user to opening a malicious attachment, or clicking a malicious link or impersonating an executive for financial gain. For many years, Secure Email Gateway (SEG) has been used as a critical email security tool to scan emails and determine whether they are phishing, spam or malware. However, as organizations move their email to the cloud using Microsoft 365 and other cloud providers, traditional Secure Email Gateway has become less reliable as a means to protect users from email-borne threats.

Blair Technology Solutions provides a multi-layered approach to help you build better email security.

Security Beyond Email

Avanan connects directly to the native API of cloud email providers and their associated SaaS applications, providing real-time and historical data on every user, file, event, and policy — not only of internal accounts but everyone who has access.

Trained on advanced threats

Scan emails after default security, Secure Email Gateways (SEGs), and Advanced Threat Protection. Learning from the attacks those technologies miss, Avanan blocks attacks that evade traditional scans before reaching the inbox.

Invisible to Hackers

No change to MX records means that hackers can't see if an organization uses Avanan to secure their cloud. At the same time, seamless security doesn't interrupt user experience in cloud applications.

Adapted to each environment

Artificial Intelligence (AI) learns from relationships between employees, historical emails, and communication patterns to build a custom threat profile that blocks attacks specific to each organization.
