Stop email cyberthreats with Advanced Email Security

94% of all malware and 96% of all social engineering attacks today are delivered through email. For managed service providers (MSPs), that makes email security a top priority but – as we learned in our recent Acronis Cyber Protection Week Global Report – responding to this threat takes more than just slapping a new cybersecurity tool to build services on top of. In fact, more than half of security professionals now admit that having too many security tools adversely impacts security and increases risk.

To empower service providers and help them defend their clients' email systems, Acronis has partnered with Perception Point to release the new Advanced Email Security pack for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.

“We are thrilled to partner with Acronis to power the leading Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution, with Perception Point, integrated as the Advanced Email Security pack,” said Yoram Salinger, CEO of Perception Point. “Together we are making enterprise-grade cybersecurity solutions available to all MSPs and their end-customers. Acronis’ and Perception Point’s approach helps us realize our vision of combining the best technology with personalized services, to protect customers from the broad range of constantly evolving threats."

Introducing Advanced Email Security

Powered by the industry-leading solution from Perception Point, the new Advanced Email Security pack natively integrates with Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud so MSPs can continue to use a single solution to enhance and extend their cyber protection services for clients’ Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and Open-Xchange mailboxes, and on-premises mail servers.

The Advanced Email Security pack intercepts all email-based threats – including spam, phishing, spoofing, business email compromises (BECs), advanced persistent threats (APTs) and the zero-day malware threats that are behind 80% of successful breaches. This ensures that MSPs can protect their clients from the email-based cyberthreats that are costing organizations and service providers time, money, and business.

“Email is both business-critical and the top threat vector for organizations today. For service providers, preventing email threats from reaching their clients is vital,” said Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis. “The new Advanced Emails Security pack marries the best-in-class technology from Perception Point with the unified cybersecurity, data protection, and endpoint protection of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. As a result, MSPs have everything needed to keep clients secure and their business efficient and profitable.”

A proactive approach to protection

Instead of relying on the same reactive sandboxing technologies that legacy email security solutions use, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s Advanced Email Security pack performs scans that cover 100% of client email traffic – including internal emails – and shortens the time required for a scan from up to 20 minutes to a maximum of 30 seconds. That means, MSPs can deliver more reliable protection to their clients and keep them more productive at the same time.

With the Advanced Email Security pack, MSPs can offer more comprehensive protection, earn more business with innovative email security capabilities that clients need, and expand and customize their services to deliver cyber protection perfect for each client and each workload.

  • Stop phishing and spoofing attempts with powerful threat intelligence, heuristics, URL reputation checks, unique computer vision algorithms, and machine-intelligence-enhanced Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC), DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record checks.
  • Detect advanced evasion techniques used to hide malicious content. To do this, the solution recursively unpacks embedded files and URLs, and separately analyzes them with dynamic and static detection engines.
  • Prevent malware and email threats that evade conventional defenses such as advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks. By leveraging Perception Point’s unique CPU-level technology, the solution acts earlier in the attack chain to block exploits before the malware is released and delivers a clear verdict within seconds.

Final thoughts

The Advanced Email Security pack is the latest addition to the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution. Earlier this year, the cyber protection leader also announced

All of the new advanced protection packs natively integrate into Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud and provide MSPs with increased flexibility, empowering them to create service tiers and packs that address the unique needs of any client, while keeping management streamlined.
