Keepnet’s Email Threat Simulator (ETS) continuously tests your secure email gateway solutions, such as Office 365 and Google Workspace, by sending real-world attacks to a dedicated test inbox. It demonstrates how many of these attacks bypass your SEGs and identifies vulnerabilities. ETS improves your defenses and helps in the remediation process, optimizing your technological investments.

Did you know 82% of email attacks bypass Secure Email Gateways?

Email attacks cost businesses $3 trillion annually and necessitate considerable technological investments, such as sandboxes, firewalls, or anti-spam measures to provide protection. Despite built-in security features, 78% of all malicious emails originate from Office 365 and Google Workspace users. It's concerning that 82% of soft threats go undetected, revealing the urgent need for more robust security strategies on these platforms against email threats.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Email Threat Simulator?

arrow down

The email threat simulator is a tool that tests an organization's email security system by simulating various types of email-based cyber threats. These threats can include phishing, malware, ransomware, and other types of attacks that typically target email systems. The simulator sends these real-world threats to the organization's email system to see if the security measures in place can detect and block them.

Why is an email threat simulator necessary?

arrow down

An email threat simulator is necessary for several reasons:

  • Identify Vulnerabilities: It helps organizations identify vulnerabilities in their email security system. By simulating real-world threats, the simulator can reveal weaknesses that might not be apparent during regular operation.
  • Test Effectiveness: It allows organizations to test the effectiveness of their email security measures e.g Secure Gateway Solutions. This can help them determine whether their current security solutions are sufficient or if they need to upgrade or adjust their defenses.
  • Compliance: Some industries require regular security testing for compliance purposes. An email threat simulator can help fulfill these requirements by providing documented proof of testing.
  • Proactive Defense: Finally, using an email threat simulator is a proactive measure. Instead of waiting for a real threat to test the system, organizations can take the initiative to find and fix vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.

What does the Email Threat Simulator do for hardening Office365 and Google Workspace?

arrow down

Email Threat Simulator regularly tests your secure gateway solutions, like Office365 and Google Workspace security. ETS identifies vulnerabilities and assesses the robustness of your email security by sending over +700 real-world attacks to a test inbox. The assessment optimizes security measures, thereby hardening Office365 and Google Workspace against potential threats.

How does Email Threat Simulator help in assessing the email secure gateway?

arrow down

The ETS assesses the email secure gateway by sending real-world attacks such as Ransomware Attacks, Client-side Attacks, Spear Phishing Attacks, Business Email Compromise (BEC), and other Malicious email attacks. By testing the gateway's response to these threats, it can identify vulnerabilities or potential areas for improvement.

How does Email Threat Simulator contribute to hardening email security overall?

arrow down

Email Threat Simulator hardens email security by uncovering potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations. Using real-world threat simulations, it tests the effectiveness of various security measures like antivirus, anti-spam, and sandbox environments. This allows users to improve and strengthen their email security posture based on concrete findings and recommendations.

Can Email Threat Simulator help in hardening IDS/IPS?

arrow down

Yes, the Email Threat Simulator, like a breach and attack simulation tool, tests the robustness of all aspects of your email security architecture, including Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). The ETS provides detailed reports on vulnerabilities and recommends hardening these systems.

What is the role of the Email Threat Simulator in email gap analysis?

arrow down

Email Threat Simulator plays a significant role in email gap analysis by identifying vulnerabilities and areas where your email security falls short. Through the continuous testing and retesting of your email security system, the simulator helps pinpoint areas needing improvement, facilitating a practical gap analysis.

How does Email Threat Simulator help in fixing email vulnerabilities?

arrow down

The Email Threat Simulator helps fix email vulnerabilities by first identifying them through comprehensive email security testing. After testing, it provides you with a company score on the vulnerabilities detected and offers actionable recommendations for remediation, thereby guiding the process of fixing any identified weaknesses.

Is Email Threat Simulator a breach and attack simulation product?

arrow down

Yes, the Email Threat Simulator can be likened to a breach and attack simulation tool, though its functionality is distinct in some fundamental ways. The system conducts realistic attack simulations, but instead of only replicating potential threats, it executes actual threats against a dedicated test inbox. This approach offers a more hands-on evaluation of your security measures, providing actionable insights to help fortify your defenses.

How does the Email Threat Simulator help to maximize technological investments?

arrow down

The Email Threat Simulator helps maximize technological investments by ensuring your email security solutions work effectively against the latest threats. Identifying any weaknesses or vulnerabilities allows you to make the necessary adjustments to optimize your security measures, ensuring you get the most out of your investments.
