How it works

The multi-layer filtering engine delivers an extraordinary level of accuracy that reduces both false negatives (bad emails getting in) and false positives (good emails kept out). This reduces the time you spend managing the system and reduces friction for users.

With Advanced Email Threat Protection you get

Attachment Quarantine performs forensic analysis on attachments in Zix’s secure, cloud-based sandbox environment. It can also deliver a disarmed version of files by removing macros or converting files to PDF.

Link Protection rewrites all links to safe versions and performs time-ofclick analysis on the destination address. Based on testing, users are either automatically redirected to a safe site, provided a warning for suspicious sites, or blocked from potentially malicious sites.

Message Retraction (for Microsoft 365) enhances your incident response with the ability to retract malicious emails already delivered to users’ inboxes. This minimizes risk by taking malicious email out of users’ hands and quickens remediation. The system keeps a detailed audit trail.

24/7/365 Live Threat Analyst Team is constantly identifying new threats, updating the system, and providing warnings.

Why do you need email security?

With increases in social engineering, broad-based spam, and targeted attacks, cybercriminals are exploiting known vulnerabilities in the biggest email providers to steal privileged information. In many cases, businesses don’t catch the breach, don’t know how to assess the damage, or don’t have tools for remediation.

Ninety-six percent of threats begin with email. Email Threat Protection secures this major vulnerability in a way that’s straightforward to implement and manage. Plus, as an integral part of Secure Cloud, Email Threat Protection works seamlessly with Zix’s other Security, Compliance, and Productivity services. Together, they form a fully integrated platform that allows partners and customers to create a secure, modern workplace.
