Monday, July 17, 2017

Friendly Name Filter Defends Against Email Attacks Targeting Smartphone Users

BOSTON, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- More users than ever are using their smartphones to browse and open emails, leaving them vulnerable to scammers who are taking advantage of the small screen sizes and reduced information displayed. The Email Laundry's new Friendly Name Filter adds a new layer of protection by looking at various parts of the header of an email to verify if it is actually coming from the display name that is shown in a user's inbox.

The Friendly Name filter works alongside cyber threat intelligence and the other layers of email security protecting The Email Laundry customers from advanced and ever-evolving email attacks.

    --  Protection against social engineering attacks like whaling, CEO fraud,
        business email compromise or W-2 fraud.
    --  Instant action from The Email Laundry Threat Intelligence Network and
        Security Analyst teams
    --  Protects against Newly Registered and Newly Observed Domains to catch
        the first email from a newly registered domain.
    --  Protects against Display name spoofing and attacks targeting phones
    --  Protects against "looks like" and "sounds like" versions of domain names

"Our new "FriendlyName filter" is an important tool in the fight against impersonation detection."

"Attackers are using publicly available information to craft emails which appear to come from legitimate users within an organisation. Any user can fall victim to such an attack so having effective protection is vitally important."

"Our customers now have an additional layer of security against these CEO Fraud / Business Email Compromise attacks."

-Ralph Casey, CTO of The Email Laundry
