Forcepoint Email Security
Forcepoint Email Security identifies targeted attacks, high-risk users and insider threats, while empowering mobile workers and the safe adoption of new technologies like Office 365 and Box Enterprise.
From inbound attack activity to outbound data theft or botnet communication attempts, Forcepoint Email Security secures mixed environments with content aware defenses, protecting email communications as part of a complete and connected defense system against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other types of advanced threats.
Stop ransomware and other threats
Forcepoint Email Security uses the Advanced Classification Engine (ACE) to identify threats ranging from annoying spam to advanced malware, phishing, and Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks.
Block data theft with content-aware DLP
Advanced capabilities detect data theft concealed in images or custom-encrypted files, even when gradually transmitted in small amounts to evade detection.
Identify high-risk user behavior
The rich data collection capability can quickly generate a report on Indicators of Compromise to identify infected systems and suspicious user behavior.

STOP APT AND OTHER ADVANCED TARGETED THREATS
Forcepoint’s Advanced Classification Engine (ACE) is at the heart of all Forcepoint solutions. ACE identifies malicious lures, exploit kits, emerging threats, botnet communications and other advanced threat activity across the Kill Chain. This enables Forcepoint Email Security to identify the early stages of an attack. It can even identify Zero-day malware threats using powerful assessment capabilities that include fully-integrated, file behavioral sandboxing.
SECURE SENSITIVE DATA AGAINST EXTERNAL ATTACKS AND INSIDER THREATS
To prepare for a malicious insider threat or the potentially successful cyberattack, it’s vital that outbound communications be monitored. This is also necessary both for data theft compliance needs as well as for business requirements. Only Forcepoint provides the technology to stop data infiltration and exfiltration with capabilities such as:
- OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning to identify sensitive data hidden in images such as scanned documents or screen shots.
- Encrypted file detection to recognize custom encrypted files designed to defy identification.
- Drip data loss prevention (DLP) monitoring to identify where sensitive data is leaked in small quantities over time.
- Advanced analysis of malicious files and macros typically embedded in with MS Office files.
SAFELY ADOPT CLOUD TECHNOLOGIES LIKE OFFICE 365 AND BOX ENTERPRISE WHILE SUPPORTING A MOBILE WORKFORCE
IT departments are strained to maintain current systems while supporting an increasingly mobile workforce and the demands to adopt new technologies like Office 365. Forcepoint Email Security provides industry-leading capabilities that leverage systems and other information to control communications, such as preventing total access to sensitive email attachments on vulnerable mobile devices, while permitting full access on fully-secured laptops. These inbound and outbound defenses are all supported on Office 365.
IDENTIFY ”HIGH-RISK” USER BEHAVIOR AND EDUCATE USERS TO IMPROVE AWARENESS
The rich data collections in Forcepoint Email Security are used by a number of policies to report and identify systems that may require special IT attention. They generate a report on Indicators of Compromise to identify infected systems, and more proactive reports on suspicious behavior, including potential insider threats, such as “disgruntled employee” activity. User feedback capabilities educate employees as mistakes are made, helping them to better learn and understand safe email best practices.
