Email SecurityOn-Premises and Cloud Based Email Security

Detect and block spear phishing and other threats to email security

Cyber criminals often use spear phishing attacks, as well as malicious file attachments and URLs in emails, to launch an advanced cyber attack. These email attacks routinely bypass email security that uses conventional signature-based defenses such as antivirus (AV) and spam filters.

FireEye Email Security products (EX and ETP) protect against such cyber attacks. These products detonate and analyze suspicious email attachments and embedded URLs and block malicious activity to enhance email security. With these capabilities, organizations can prevent, detect, and respond to email-based cyber attacks. Customers can select Email Threat Prevention Cloud (ETP) for a complete, off-premise email security solution with no hardware or software to install. ETP includes AV and anti-spam protection to handle attacks hidden in bulk email and manage nuisance traffic.
