Messaging Security

The ubiquity of email and messaging makes them one of the attackers’ preferred channels for malware, spam, identity theft, and data exfiltration. Our solutions address all these risk categories to provide a low-risk business environment.

Email is ubiquitous with business – but vulnerable to cyber attacks

Despite its respectful age, email is still the backbone of our daily working lives and a valuable tool for internal and external communication. Its pervasive use over mobile and fixed user devices, together with its integration with business applications, makes it the perfect target for digital attacks. Moreover, its reliance on user interaction creates additional risks that often cannot be mitigated using technical controls alone.

A common risk is email-delivered ransomware, where attackers use known or future unknown (day-zero) malware to infect internal clients with malicious email attachments. These attacks move laterally from their initial infection point and can quickly propagate to cause costly incidents that involve the majority of company data.

Solution Description

Businesses need more than just malware protection
Managing the risk of digital messaging processes entails much more than just basic malware protection. Depending on the criticality and context of the messaging solution, you may need security solutions that:

  • Ensure the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of messages
  • Prevent the misuse of messaging channels for data exfiltration
  • Prevent modern and unknown malware from compromising customer endpoints

To reduce the risk, Conscia designs, implements, and operates the following classes of messaging security solutions:

  • Protection against known and future unknown messaging malware using content security solutions that employ both traditional and advanced analysis techniques, such as sandbox execution
  • Productivity protection using email anti-spam solutions
  • Secure messaging solutions that provide authentication, integrity, and confidentiality controls to internal or external messaging processes
  • Data leakage prevention (DLP) and detection solutions that identify malicious or accidental data exfiltration over messaging channels
  • Managed detection and response services in the form of managed SOC to provide fast detection and response to messaging-related incidents

To provide solutions that best fit specific customer environments, we integrate cloud security solutions from Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Check Point Software, and Palo Alto Networks.
