Agenda – Gateway Messaging Security
  • Email Threats
  • InterScan Messaging Security Solutions
  • Beyond Gateway Messaging Security
  • Summary and Keys to Remember
spam problem
Spam Problem

75-90% of Email is Spam 1

  • Spam has increased fivefold in the last couple of years.2
  • Zombies and botnets make it easier for spammers and are now responsible for most spam
  • Spam is evolving with new techniques like image spam
  • Even if blocked from the inbox, letting spam into the network uses bandwidth, storage, and other network resources

virus problem
Virus Problem

Viruses are only in about 2-6% of emails.1

HOWEVER, the impact can be substantial.

And the number of viruses can add up.



Instead of the mass virus attacks of the past, hackers are using viruses for monetary gain (often using more targeted attacks)


  • Bot code that allows hackers to use the victim’s machine to send spam or fraudulent emails
  • Key-logging Trojans that collect confidential information

phishing problem
Phishing Problem
  • Email fraud made up 4% of email in 20061
  • Phishing emails spoof legitimate companies and attempt to steal information
  • Phishing affects both individuals and corporations with thousands of unique phishing threats sent out every month
  • Companies need to protect themselves from loss of confidential information and potential liability


Blended threats – Malware and phishing attacks

Key-Logging Trojans also “phish” for information

Pharming Crimeware redirects users to fraudulent Web sites to steal information

targeted attacks
Targeted Attacks

Unique attacks tailored for the targeted organization

  • Viruses (such as ransom attacks)
  • Spyware in Email
  • Corporate Spear Phishing
  • Directory Harvest Attack (DHA)
    • Tries numerous variations of possible email addresses using a company’s domain
    • Goal = to acquire a valid email list for the company
    • Can use the list later for a targeted attack, such as a phishing, virus, spyware, or spam attack
  • Bounced Mail Attacks
    • Spoofs a legitimate company by inserting its domain as the email sender
    • When the receiving servers bounce the email, the bounced emails are sent to the spoofed company, flooding the server and tainting the reputation of the innocent company
data privacy protection
Data Privacy & Protection
  • Regulatory ComplianceRegulations impose mandates on data protection or privacyCan affect email and other digital communication
  • Corporate GovernanceInternal standards or policies that a company uses to govern itselfIn this case policies for appropriate use of messaging
  • Loss of Confidential InformationProtection against data leakage, whether intentional, or inadvertent
email security concerns
Email Security Concerns
  • Spam
  • Viruses
  • Network Security
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Corporate Governance
  • Loss of Confidential Information
  • Spyware
  • Denial of Service Attacks
  • Phishing
  • Directory Harvest Attacks

Zero-day protection

Zero-day protection applies heuristics to detect unknown viruses

For example, IntelliTrap stops viruses based on the tools used to hide the virus and not the virus code itself--no signature is required

Anti-spyware and other malware protection for email

ActiveAction provides automated responses to viruses, spyware, and other malware

Award-Winning Antivirus and Anti-Spyware
anti phishing

Technologies specific to phishing

  • Phishing signatures
  • Heuristics for phishing indicators
  • Reputation services block known phishers
  • Embedded URL reputation

Customers can set

policy rules for

phishing emails

protection from targeted attacks
Protection from Targeted Attacks
  • Technologies that prevent known attacks will not work (for example, signatures and reputation services)
  • Instead we apply predictive techniques--zero-day protection, heuristics, and behavior analysis
    • Antivirus = prevents virus attacks aimed at specific organizations (for example, ransom attacks)
    • Anti-spyware = stops the more targeted spyware attacks sent through email.
    • DHA and bounced mail protection (IP Profiler) = protects against bounced mail attacks anddirectory harvest attacks, which can result inadditional targeted attacks
    • Anti-phishing = blocks corporate spear phishing
data privacy and protection

product levels
Product Levels

Threat protection is packaged in different levels

* IMHS Standard = complete inbound protection with streamlined managementIMHS Advanced = granular access and control for inbound and outbound traffic with flexible content filtering, similar to IMSS and IMSA

ip profiler34
IP Profiler

Firewall against DHA and Bounced Mail Attacks

IP Profiler applies additional information to block directory harvest attacks

  • Number of recipients that can be listed in an email
  • Number of non-existing recipients (this technology is LDAP integrated)

IP Profiler also conducts other behavioral

analysis to block DHAs

Back to Main IP Profiler Slide

ip profiler how it works
IP Profiler – How It Works
  • Records all inbound and outbound SMTP traffic
  • Reports records on email traffic from each IP Address to a database
  • The emails are scanned by the anti-spam composite engine
  • The results of the scanning engine are reported to the database
  • The traffic from the IP Address is profiled by cross referencing the recorded traffic with the scanning results

For example, total messaging from the IP Address vs. spam messages from the IP Address

  • This outcome is compared against the user thresholds
  • If the outcome exceeds the thresholds, the trigger action is applied Block Permanently (SMTP 5xx) or Block Temporarily (SMTP 4xx)

Back to Main IP Profiler Slide

IP Addresses

Display Logs

  • Total spam emails
  • Total malicious attempts
  • Total connections
  • Percentage of malicious attempt in the overall number of connections

Administrators can select IP Addresses and permanently or temporarily block these IP Addresses

Can create global white/black lists for IP/Domains which will apply to both NRS and IP Profiler
