Email attachment analysis

Email attachment analysis is a feature of Egress Prevent

Attachmentinterr Intro 555X300

Send the right email content

Some providers analyse attachments by name and type in order to detect abnormal behaviour. We don’t think that’s enough, and instead, we actually scan the data inside an attachment to check for a potential security breach.

This allows Egress to cast a far wider net, so you can prevent additional data leaks that simple attachment name and type analysis will not pick up.

How in-depth attachment interrogation works

File name and type analysis

We inspect the name and type of an attachment versus recipients and domains to check whether it's safe to send.
