Benefits

Validate the effectiveness of your email security controls against threat evolutions and stop attacks in the pre-exploitation stage.

  • Track email-security effectiveness over time and prevent security drift
  • Find, prioritize, and fix security gaps against an exhaustive and continuously updated library of attacks
  • Fine tune email security policies to block non-essential and abuseable file types

  • Safe to run in production

Email Gateway Vector

Email is the most frequently used method of attack for exploiting security weaknesses and compromising corporate environments. Research shows that over 75% of cyberattacks worldwide originate from a malicious email, and the number of those targeted attacks keep increasing. As we have seen in the past, both very high-profile cyber campaigns as well as less known ones, are launched with an email containing a malicious attachment or link for infecting victims with ransomware or opening a direct connection to the Command & Control (C&C) servers of hackers.

For example, a recurring DHL themed phishing template used during the holiday season spreads different malicious payloads such as Tesla, Panda, Ursnif etc. One recent example of this method used a DHL themed shipment invoice sent by email, notifying its victims that there is a new shipment waiting for them. Victims that click on the link or open attachments download a dropper that links to the attacker’s C&C server downloading malware to the victim’s endpoint, thus compromising it, and in some cases even compromising the whole organization.

Organizations utilize different security controls, such as Secure Email Gateways (SEGs), Sandbox, and Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) solutions to protect their employees’ mailboxes. However, their incorrect configuration or implementation can lead to the false assumption that an organization is safe.

Cymulate’s Email Gateway vector evaluates your organization’s email security and potential exposure to malicious payloads and links sent by email.
