Stopping Emails Attacks in the Cloud
Like many organizations, Bromcom recently moved their email systems to Office 365, taking advantage of productivity benefits in the cloud. However, Bromcom’s security team found found that more malicious emails were being delivered to users in the Office 365 environment, and that their IT admins didn’t have the controls they needed to stop emails from being delivered.
“We found that we were getting more phishing emails, more emails containing malicious URLs, and the in-built security in Office 365 wasn’t doing enough,” Osman Erener, Bromcom’s Head of IT and Cloud Services, says. His team needed the ability to protect users against malicious links inside emails, stop phishing emails from being delivered to users, and allow their users to access quarantined emails if needed. Bromcom also needed a solution which would help them meet compliance with the ISO/IEC 27001 information standard.
Bromcom used Expert Insights to research different providers and to find the email security service that met their criteria. They compared a number of solutions and chose Proofpoint Essentials, a market-leading email security service that features email sandboxing, protection against phishing attacks and provides a comprehensive email quarantine. With support from Expert Insights’ technical team, Bromcom was able to deploy Proofpoint across their user base and protect themselves against email threats.
