Tech giant Cisco have boosted their cyber-security offerings by adding an email security service to their portfolio. With this addition, Cisco aims to help organizations protect their own domains and shield users from phishing and spoofing attacks via email.

According to Cisco, malicious email and spam continue to linger as tools of miscreation in the cyber world. In order to counter the same, Cisco believe that identifying and mitigating threats spread by the same is imperative.

With the new email security service, Cisco say that they will not only help address these issues but also prevent email identity deception that is rampant in phishing attacks.

Cisco say that their ‘Cisco Domain Protection’ will automate the process of using email authentication to fight phishing attacks, protect brands from fraud and maintain email governance by taking action against fraudulent users abusing the domain. Whereas their ‘Advanced Phishing Protection’ will block advanced deception attacks for inbound email with the help of machine learning capabilities.

Speaking about the benefit provided by the email security service, Jeff Reed, Senior Vice President of Product for Cisco’s Security Business Group, commented:

Cisco understands that protecting employees and their endpoints requires more than just antivirus. Attackers leverage the Internet, email, and the network as vectors for breaching the endpoint.

We deliver greater employee protection using cloud-delivered defense against threats hosted on the Internet. Through our expanded partnership, investments, and technology innovations, we are committed to delivering to our customers the best email and endpoint protection.
