Mail is still one of the most-exploited attack vectors. However, very little innovation has been delivered to date by vendors focused on securing the email environment. That changes with Blue Coat Mail Threat Defence, which is designed to protect against email-borne malware in links and attachments, which are activated by unsuspecting end users. Deployed inline as a cloud-based service or a site-based or virtual appliance, Blue Coat Mail Threat Defence extracts malicious email content prior to delivery, without disrupting the existing message flow. Mail Threat Defence integrates seamlessly within the Blue Coat Advanced Threat Protection ecosystem, and supplements existing email security tools. Furthermore, as enterprises steadily migrate essential business communication services to the cloud, and as users access those resources remotely from a multitude of devices, Mail Threat Defence helps keep cloud-based email interactions secure, and protects devices from email threats well before they reach the user.
