Omniquad launches Mailwall Cloud - Wide Angle protection for Office 365

News from Omniquad | Nov 20, 2014

Mailwall Cloud - An essential layer of security for Office 365 that reduces risk, downtime, and combats email security threats

Today email security goes beyond just protecting the organization against virus and spam. Email has become one of the key delivery mechanisms for cyber threats.

Cybersecurity is not just an IT issue, it is a business risk. To tackle this risk a wide angle or a cross-functional approach is necessary.

Bearing in mind that the delivery mechanism for a large segment of cyber-threats is quite simple and not very technical the solution needs to combine the social with the technical. Key factors are typically clicking links in emails, opening attachments with malicious code, carelessly downloading programs, or having weak passwords. Most of this can be addressed by a comprehensive email security solution, which makes the combination of Office 365 with Mailwall Cloud very powerful.

Mailwall Cloud is working alongside Office 365 adding an enhanced layer of security, addressing advanced and targeted threats in email, like phishing and spear-phishing. An Education plug-in is available to enhance users’ knowledge of email threats and the social aspects of internet security through Omniquad’s Phish-wise service.
