Empowering people with real-time teachable moments

Security awareness training requires constant reinforcement. Even when taught regularly using training that adheres to best practices, human error is inevitable and users still fall for phishing attacks and send emails to the wrong recipients. Intelligent Email Security engages users in real time, only introducing friction when risk is evident.

Users are engaged with contextual, color-coded warning banners embedded in neutralized phishing emails, and prompts warn of anomalous sending behaviors. By engaging users at the point of risk with real examples, Egress augments ongoing security awareness for tangible, long-term risk reduction.

Automated and easy to deploy, lowering administrative overheads

Intelligent Email Security is cloud-based, simple to deploy, and augments Microsoft 365’s native security and SEGs. Its self-learning detection technologies require minimal configuration or ongoing maintenance from admins.

Response and remediation tools accelerate incident investigation, plus detailed analytics and in-depth reporting provide visibility of user behaviors and risk. Admins can proactively identify key sources of risk faster, target training where it’s needed, respond with remediating action, and prove ROI.
