EdgeWave ThreatTest


ThreatTest, powered by EdgeWave, is a new Inbox Detection and Response (IDR) solution that automates email threat resolution in the user’s inbox. If an attack gets through your current gateway defense, it lets employees click on suspicious emails and then instantly routes those emails through machine learning filters—as well as expert human analysis—to check the email’s true intent. In minutes the email is either verified or vanquished. All without help from IT, or end-user hassle.
