IRONSCALES provides a self-learning, AI-driven email security platform that continuously detects and remediates advanced threats like BEC, credential harvesting, ATO, and more, in milliseconds. The platform also incorporates employees into the organization’s fight against phishing with integrated email alert banners, report buttons, personalized phishing simulation testing, and advanced security awareness training (SAT).
Abnormal Security utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning for safeguarding businesses from email threats, including phishing and targeted attacks. However, while Abnormal Security is effective at detecting and remediating a lot of malicious emails, but it lacks a crucial element to deal with attacks that it can’t detect—human insights. It is the power of human insights which is most important in dealing with attacks that even the best AI will miss.

Email Security in the 21st Century: Time for an Upgrade

The world of email security has undergone a massive transformation in the past two decades. Traditional secure email gateways (SEGs) are no longer adequate for today's complex threat landscape. Modern businesses require next-generation solutions employing AI, machine learning, and automation to counter advanced threats, such as business email compromise, account takeover, and VIP impersonation.
