Advanced Threats

What is Advanced Threat Protection?

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is defined as a type of security solution that protects your organization from complex malware and cyberattacks, targeting sensitive data. ATP defends against evolving cyberattack techniques and strategies. As new cyberattack techniques are constantly emerging, organizations do not have the capacity to constantly track the latest emerging threats, hence Advanced Threat Protection is required to block known and unknown, sophisticated cyberattacks.

How Does Advanced Threat Protection Work?

SpamTitan’s ATP defense uses Inbuilt Bayesian auto learning and heuristics to defend against advanced threats.

Bayesian Analysis—Organizations can block an email based on its content or attached files, for example messages that contain certain “red flag” phrases. Bayesian analysis learns from each message it scans – the more messages it scans the greater its effectiveness.

Auto Learning – use of AI to pre-empts cyberthreats and thought pattern detection in real-time.

Heuristics – detecting viruses by examining code for suspicious properties.

What Are Common Types of Advanced Threat Attacks?

Here are some common advanced threats that target office 365 users, that result from a lack of advanced threat defense.

  • Phishing Emails: This is the most common advanced threat for Microsoft Outlook / Exchange users to gain access to an internal network.

  • Malware: The installation of malware into an internal network, once the hacker has got access into the internal network. The hackers may monitor activity and steal data. 

  • Stealing Credentials: Attackers may monitor the system and steal sensitive credentials to get further access into the comprised network. 

  • Gaining Network Access: While an attacker has access to a network, the attacker may create an entry route in order to gain access again to the compromised network. 

What is Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection?

Office 365 has become a primary target for ransomware and phishing attacks. A recent study by Deloitte, states that “91% of all attacks begin with a phishing email to an unsuspecting victim”. 

SpamTitan integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook / Office 365 to provide advanced threat protection to organizations from sophisticated cyberattacks.

In 2016, a study found that 71.4% of corporate Office 365 users have at least one compromised account each month.  While Office 365 is a brilliant email client, it lacks in some areas such as spam filtering, hence an advanced threat defense is required to defend against the ever-evolving cybercriminals.

Nevertheless, an spam filtering solution is required to protect against spam and advanced threats.
