What is Egress Threat Protection?

Egress Switch Threat Protection is a security platform for businesses that aims to prevent misaddressed email sending and protect business against data loss. It’s a platform that promises to ‘contain the insider threat’ by which it means that it will stop data being sent to the wrong people by mistake and stop data leaks before they happen. The system is based on machine learning systems that learn the communication patterns within an organization. They use this information to alter employees when they have CC’d the wrong recipients in an email. This can be an easy way to stop the accidental leakage of data. This platform works within all existing email clients as an extra layer of security alongside an email gateway.

Features:

  • Machine learning algorithms accurately highlight potential mistaken recipients to emails senders
  • Platform is easy to use for end users working directly out of existing email clients with no difficult set up requires
  • Self-improving machine learning technology automates the data loss protection process and reduces the pressure on IT departments Audits and reports highlight how often users make mistakes and what their response is, such as sending the email anyway or making changes
  • Works on-premise or with cloud based email platforms with quick and easy deployment
  • Alongside highlighting potentially mistaken contacts, the service will suggest the correct or additional recipients in the context of past conversations
  • Provides businesses with full legal compliance and proves that businesses are taking steps to secure their data

Expert Insight:

Egress Threat Protection is a strong tool for businesses to stop employees sending emails to the wrong people and, in doing so, put sensitive data at risk. The platform is based on self-learning machine learning systems which sit within the email network. It analyses conversation histories to build a knowledge of who a user emails based on historical information. It uses this to alert users when they think they have accidentally addressed an email to the wrong person and suggest contacts they should send it to instead. This can be useful to stop confidential data leaking and meet legal compliance. It’s easy to deploy, and works within existing email clients. For end users, the only change is a message that will pop up, telling them that they may have made a mistake. The platform also offers businesses reporting which shows how accurately the platform is working.

This platform is expensive and so it suited to larger organisations looking to take steps to secure their data. It’s important to note that this is part of a stack of email security features offered by Egress and so on it’s own will not provide any protection from email threats such as spam or phishing attacks. However, Egress does offer a strong platform to help employees protect themselves from making small email mistakes that could put data at risk. Enterprise customers looking purely for misaddressed email protection should consider this platform.
