Prevent Phishing and Imposter Threats

Trust your inbox again with cloud email security protecting your people and critical information from malware, as well as malware free phishing and impersonation attempts.


Keep Imposters Out

Automatically identify your high-profile targets for malware-free impersonation and business email compromise attacks, then block the attack with machine learning analysis of message content.

Block Imposters

Criminals often impersonate key individuals in an organization or well-known brands to trick other employees into falling for their scams. With no malware or URLs to detect, Sophos Email uses advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) machine learning to block these targeted impersonation and Business Email Compromise attacks.

NLP is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on helping computers to understand the way we humans write and speak. This enables Sophos Email to understand words in context rather than individually to extract notions like “urgency” and “asking for something” with an email and stop the message reaching your users.

For added protection, Sophos Email also includes a setup assistant that integrates with AD Sync to automatically identify the individuals within an organization who are most likely to be impersonated. It scans all inbound mail for display name variations associated with those users, further extending protection against phishing imposters.


Let Trusted Senders In

Authenticate all your senders without blocking legitimate email using SPF, DKIM, and DMARC authentication techniques and email header anomaly analysis.

Authenticate Senders

Adversaries are experts at using social engineering in their attacks. That’s why Sophos Email scans all inbound messages for key phishing indicators such as brand spoofing and impersonation attempts in real-time using SPF, DKIM, and DMARC authentication techniques and email header anomaly analysis. It spots and blocks phishing emails before they reach your users.

Submit a Threat

Stop Malware From Reaching the Inbox

Multi-layered protection utilizes over 35 years of threat intelligence, reputational and behavioral analysis, and state-of-the-art machine learning to eliminate malware and malicious URLs from reaching your inboxes.

Stop Malware

The danger with phishing is not the email itself but what it gets people to do. Phishing emails often include malicious links and malware attackers try to trick you into activating. Sophos Email Time-of-Click URL rewriting analyzes all URLs as they are clicked to block or warn users of risks, while the Sophos cloud sandbox accurately analyzes all files using multi-layered analysis and state-of-the art machine learning models. This ensures latest zero-day and unknown malware threats and PUA are blocked in minutes.

Protection Post-delivery

Automatically remove phishing emails containing newly infected URLs as soon as the threat state changes with continuous monitoring of Microsoft 365 mailboxes.

Post-delivery Protection

Email protection should continue to monitor messages once in the inbox. Safe URLs can be redirected to malicious ones, and malware can be inserted in previously safe sites. Sophos Email’s Search and Destroy API connection identifies these changes to threat levels automatically and removes malicious URLs, as well as the messages for Microsoft 365 users.

Messages identified by Search and Destroy can be viewed in your post-delivery quarantine summary.

Get Peace of Mind from Data Security

Secure sensitive data and make compliance easy. Sophos Email automatically scans messages and attachments for sensitive data, with encryption that integrates seamlessly.

Prevent Data Loss

Create multi-rule DLP policies for groups and individual users to ensure protection of sensitive information with discovery of financials, confidential contents, health information, and PII in all emails and attachments.

Encrypt and Authentication

Encrypt messages and add a digital signature to verify sender identity with S/MIME, or select from customizable encryption options including TLS encryption, attachment and message encryption (PDF and Office), or add-on full web portal encryption.
