When you boil it down, all modern phishing attacks can be classified by two simple questions: 'Who sent the email? ' and 'What's in the email? '

The security industry has struggled to keep a lid on email fraud because its primary focus has only been on deciphering the content of an email ' the 'what. ' Existing solutions utilize flavors of AI/ML filtering to uncover suspicious links, attachments, keywords, and behaviors. But the more these solutions are deployed, the more the bad guys come up with new variations that bypass these filters. It's an endless game of whack-a-mole.

Join us as we go in-depth on a critical new email security technique based on authenticating email sender identity. We'll discuss:

  • The most pervasive types of impersonation attacks
  • How to move beyond manual IP address lookups and blacklist maintenance to automated services authentication and authorization
  • How Valimail's identity-based approach complements existing solutions (including Microsoft ATP) to stop these attacks dead

During the webinar we'll demonstrate how Valimail authenticates both inbound and outbound email flows by validating organizational domains and ensuring that only trusted senders reach the inbox.
