Email SecurityEX Series and ETP

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 and spam filters.

FireEye Email Security products (EX and ETP) protect against these 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. For additional email security, FireEye also provides anti-virus and anti-spam protection through Email Threat Prevention (ETP) in the cloud.
