Even the best antivirus available cannot guarantee against zero-day attacks, impersonation attempts, or domain spoofing. Hackers and scammers know how to take advantage of your IT weaknesses and manipulate your emotions. To respond appropriately, threats involving both people and machines require solutions utilizing both as well.

- Ironscales is available to Atera subscribers and in the New UI only.
- There is a 30-day, free trial available.

How Ironscales Email Protect™ Works
Advanced Malware / URL Protection
The first layer of protection. Unlike traditional Secure Email Gateway (SEG) solutions, which use their own solution, Ironscales integrates with 5 technologies (more on this below!) and over 60 malware protection engines to provide a single dashboard that continuously monitors links and attachments for instant detection, analysis, and remediation of known attacks.

But what about those near-impossible to detect, unknown threats? Ironscales has several security layers to address this...
Mailbox-Level Anomaly Detection
Ironscales creates a profile for each employee in the organization — learning who's who in the zoo, so to speak. Knowing who each employee interacts with, their contacts, global address books, etc., enables Ironscales to warn you if something seems fishy.
As an example, let's pretend your client previously received emails from Jane Doe, whose email is firstname.lastname@example.org. However, today they received an email from email@example.com. Classic impersonation attempt; replacing the 'i' with an 'l'. Can you confidently claim to be immune to such trickery and deception? Probably not. And that's ok. In such cases, Ironscales immediately creates an incident for the problem, and removes it automatically from all mailboxes (not just the individual concerned; but across the organization). Gone is your uncertainty and guesswork!

AI-Powered Incident Response
Ironscales detects — as well as allows employees to report — suspicious emails. Once detected/reported, you'll receive immediate notification on this incident so you can respond as quickly as possible. After this, Ironscales automatically sorts the incident by threat severity and examines the suspicious email. If the examined email, link, or attachment is indeed 'naughty', Ironscales will automatically remove the email from ALL affected mailboxes.

Virtual Security Operations Center (SOC) Analyst
Say hello to Themis, your Virtual SOC analyst, mimicking the decision-making process of other security analysts and SOCs within the Ironscales global network, as well as providing recommendations based on current, real-world threat intelligence. In short, Themis analyzes and responds to any and all email threats coming into your client's organization.

Visual Similarity Technology
Credential theft takes place when someone steals login details and uses them to access services or applications they do not have the required permissions to use. Spoofing emails, representing some trusted brand, name, or organization lures the recipient into providing their credentials. Attackers are constantly trying to outmaneuver technical email controls and human suspicion. Visual Similarity Protection is based on pixels, comparing spoofed emails with their legitimate counterparts.

Decentralized Real-Time Threat Protection
The final mile of protection, drawn from the Ironscales community. If other companies marked an email as a phishing attack, spam, or even a false positive, this information is recorded and presented to you to help you make a decision regarding the incident. In other words, Ironscales utilizes decentralized real-time threat protection so you can better prepare to meet the latest email and phishing attacks.
