Even with all of your security controls and policies in place, you are right to wonder how effective your security stack truly is. With scamming techniques gaining complexity everyday, how do you know malware, a malicious link, or a phishing email isn’t just moments away from leaving your company vulnerable? With remote work on the rise, the increase of distracted employees and unsecured remote desktop machines make the security perimeter increasingly scattered and vulnerable to attack.
Breach and attack simulation tools help companies to find the answer to the effectiveness question by running controlled tests with simulated threats. Breach and attack simulation tools can provide valuable and actionable insights that help protect you from many different threats, including email threats.
BAS tools form a solid foundation for a company to understand the most urgent security vulnerabilities and provide insight into how to prioritize your security team’s attention. Applied to email, this becomes vitally important, especially given the active and changing landscape of cyberattacks.
When looking for a BAS-type tool for email security, companies may also want to seek tools that provide continuous testing and a way to measure security controls against emerging threats.
Secure Email Gateways (SEGs) alone cannot keep up with the flood of ever-changing and ever more sophisticated attacks. For the most accurate understanding of how secure you actually are, you’ll need to complement testing your email security against well-known attacks with testing against new and live attacks.
Included with the IRONSCALES Platform, Emulator is a first-of-its-kind threat assessment tool that enables you to defend against known and emerging phishing threats vetted by security teams. By focusing on emulation over simulation, security teams can make perimeter testing as real, fast, and frequent as desired. You train and test your people to fight phishing – why shouldn’t you do the same for your technical defenses?
Now you have the ability to emulate recent, real-world phishing attacks to discover weak points and vulnerabilities within your existing email security infrastructure. Emulator exposes holes at the SEG level with both unmodified, signature and non-signature-based attacks – all within a safely contained designated mailbox.
