Prevent misdirected emails
Stop sending emails to the wrong person. Risk-based Protection analyzes email recipients and content to understand whether employees are sharing information correctly and prevent them from sending emails to the wrong people.
Machine learning that prevents misdirected emails. Risk-based Protection determines what normal behavior looks like for individual employees, and alerts them when they might be about to make a mistake and misdirect an email.
Alert administrators to email data breaches. Whether one employee frequently misdirects emails or another tries to exfiltrate information, Risk-based Protection alerts administrators to unusual behavior.
Share the right content every time
Avoid sharing the wrong content. Scrutiny of subject line, message body and attachments against domains and recipient names prevents employees sharing sensitive information and, in turn, causing costly data breaches.
In-depth attachment analysis. Risk-based Protection goes beyond simple file name and type analysis to interrogate the data within an attachment, providing increased security to minimise the risk of unauthorised recipients accessing confidential information.
Advanced Data Loss Prevention (DLP) functionality. Advanced email protection automatically learns patterns of sharing sensitive data with recipients and domains in order to detect mistakes and prevent critical breaches.
Automate email security
Reduce the risk of a data breach. Risk-based Protection automatically applies the right level of email security relative to the actual risk of a data breach, protecting data as it moves through insecure channels to unknown devices.
Increase adoption for email security tools. Risk-based Protection is vendor agnostic, so it makes sure your email security technology is used correctly regardless of whether it’s Egress Secure Email and File Transfer, TLS or another third-party supplier, such as Office 365 encryption.
Comply with security legislation. Enhancing your email security with Risk-based Protection can help you to prove compliance with data protection regulations, such as the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulation and the upcoming CCPA.

Want to get more technical? Here are some good things to know about Egress Risk-based Protection.
- Machine learning and big data analysis
Egress Risk-based Protection uses our enhanced infrastructure to capture the metadata of email interactions, both feeding in historic data and recording it in real-time. Useful metadata includes senders, recipients and groups that appear in email threads together regularly.
This information is then analyzed by the Risk-based Protection engine and a network of interactions is built. Big data analysis helps construct these networks by taking in the historic user data and aggregating it. Machine learning technology is utilized to build probabilities around how people share.
Risk-based Protection machine learning tech automatically improves over time. The more data that is fed into the system, the better the system becomes at analyzing behaviour patterns and predicting when mistakes are about to be made. So the more often people send emails accurately, the better the system gets at understanding what incorrect recipients look like.
- Infrastructure integration
Risk-based Protection integrates into Outlook to provide inline analysis and alerts about accidental sends. It also integrates into 365, Exchange and G Suite environments to provide insider threat protection however your organization implements email.
- Working alongside Egress encryption and classification technologies
As part of the Egress platform, Risk-based Protection works with our document and email classification and email encryption solutions to provide comprehensive security. This adds an additional layer of security to email content, encrypting messages and attachments and providing real-time control of content after sending. Further, intelligent DLP policies mean encryption can be prompted or forced when the classified data is shared via email. The email body and classified attachments are encrypted in transit and at rest with AES256-bit encryption.
- Ways that Egress stops accidental send
Data breaches via email mistakes happen in multiple ways. Breaking down the various mistakes, we can see how Risk-based Protection helps:
- Stops sends to incorrect recipients
- Detects new recipients
- Warns against mistyped email addresses
- Suggests additional recipients
- Blocks sending to defined recipients and domains
