AI-based email security for Microsoft 365
Data-rich applications like OneDrive and SharePoint have made Microsoft 365 the most lucrative target for cyber criminals. Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 is the only native email security solution for Microsoft 365. It predicts and blocks very targeted, unknown email threats such as phishing, spear phishing and polymorphic malware.
Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 provides a native user experience and world-class protection using artificial intelligence. Vade Secure integrates seamlessly into Microsoft 365 via an API-based architecture without interrupting your e-mail traffic. This allows you to use the security features of Microsoft 365 such as B. extend EOP instead of replacing it.
Real-time Phishing Detection
There’s a common misconception amongst businesses that Microsoft’s bolted-on Office 365 security tools are enough to block the majority of email-borne attacks. But as much as 40% of Office 365 deployments1 rely on third-party tools to fill gaps in security and compliance, due to the ever-evolving severity of cyber security breaches.
Evade costly security breaches and enhance your Office 365 with the most advanced email protection solution from Vade. With 14 years’ experience, Vade protects 500 million mailboxes in 76 countries worldwide meaning that more than 5,000 customers have already put their trust in them.
Vade for Microsoft 365 stops sophisticated attacks from the first email using machine learning models; real-time behavioral analysis of the entire email, including all URLs and attachments, is carried out. Using data from more than 600 million inboxes, our AI-based threat detection stops threats before, during and even after the attacks.
The key to your Microsoft 365 environment is to take a layered security approach. While Microsoft 365’s native security features catch most mass spam waves and known threats, they don’t provide sufficient protection against advanced phishing and spear phishing attacks, as well as unknown malware. Vade for Microsoft 365 bolts itself onto Microsoft 365 EOP as a complementary layer of security.
It enhances protection by using machine learning to predict patterns for new and emerging threats, while building technical profiles for individuals your customers regularly communicate with, identifying malicious imposters to circumvent spear phishing attacks. With Vade, you can relax knowing you are covered.
Spear Phishing Detection
Instant Deployment, Instant Intelligence, Superior Protection
Vade for Microsoft 365 is fully integrated with Microsoft’s API for Microsoft 365, meaning it can be deployed in minutes without requiring an MX record change or complex configurations. You can easily run a zero-risk trial period (for around five days) in the default monitoring mode too, enabling Vade to analyse your emails without activating email defence. A full report would be supplied after the initial monitoring period, breaking down the outcome of what would have happened in active mode. Vade for Microsoft 365 goes above and beyond the level of protection available from Microsoft.
Vade Secure Blocks The Threats Other Solutions Miss
Vade Threat Coach™ - Automated Phishing Awareness Training
Threat Coach is like a personal 'cybersecurity coach', giving users gentle nudges when they exhibit risky behaviour such as opening a phishing email or clicking on a malicious link.
An integrated feature of Vade Secure for Microsoft 365, Threat Coach is a contextualized and gamified training experience that delivers phishing awareness training when users need it most—when they’ve been phished.
Threat Coach, an integrated feature of Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 that delivers on-the-fly, contextualized phishing awareness training at the moment of need.
Threat Coach is like a personal cybersecurity coach that gently nudges the user to follow email security best practices. If a user opens a phishing email or clicks on a malicious link, Threat Coach alerts the user and invites them to complete a quick, interactive training session. Generating real phishing samples from Vade Secure’s 1 billion protected mailboxes, Threat Coach delivers short, gamified training sessions that quiz users on their ability to spot phishing emails and webpages.
The modules are designed to be brief, from one to two minutes, and focus on the basic elements of emails that users—usually non-specialists—can easily detect by themselves, including suspicious URLs and email addresses.
“A corporate user cannot become a phishing specialist,” said Adrien Gendre, Chief Product and Services Officer at Vade Secure, ”let alone take the time to analyze each and every email he or she receives in detail (on average, a corporate employee receives 88 emails per day). Threat Coach training sessions are short and aim to teach users to be vigilant about checking simple elements of the email, which are not recognized at all today due to a lack of training”.
Threat Coach training content is personalized at the user level and based on the brand impersonated in the phishing email. For example, if a user clicks on a Microsoft phishing email, the training content will feature real Microsoft phishing emails. Because the content is based on the user’s real experience, unlike phishing simulations, the user is more likely to retain the training and avoid repeating their mistakes. Additionally, Threat Coach can be used proactively. If an admin identifies problem users who click on links or fail training, the admin can create a new Threat Coach campaign and deliver it directly to the user.
Making training accessible and generalized to all users
Threat Coach addresses the underserved market for phishing awareness training designed for MSPs and SMBs. Most phishing awareness training platforms are built for enterprises, with high costs, complicated features, and considerable time and resource commitments. According to Gartner, most security awareness training programs require an average of one FTE (full-time equivalent).
“Only large companies have the means to implement a real training strategy,” said Gendre, “whereas attacks affect all companies. The Threat Coach feature, integrated into our Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 solution, makes training instantly accessible to everyone, and what’s more, at a time when users need it most—when they have been tricked”.
Because Threat Coach is integrated into Vade Secure for Microsoft 365, at no extra cost, MSPs and SMBs can provide training to their users without the high costs and added maintenance of an enterprise training platform. For MSPs the advantages are threefold: Threat Coach requires no manual setup or ongoing administration, it complements existing phishing awareness training platforms, and it empowers MSPs to offer clients added value without added costs.
Creating a positive feedback loop between technology and trained, vigilant users
Vade Secure has been advocating a people-centered approach to cybersecurity for years. People are often presented as the weakest link in the security chain, but they can also be an effective last line of defense for the company. Because no cybersecurity solution can detect and block 100% of threats, users need to understand their role and have the tools to detect and report a phishing email that has successfully passed through the layers of protection. By reporting email threats to Vade Secure via the Vade Secure for Microsoft 365 feedback loop, users become part of the email security community and help provide the threat samples that power Threat Coach.
