Security

Protect outside the box.

Users connect from many locations. They no longer need the VPN to get work done – they go directly to the cloud. This can leave a serious gap in an organisation's’ security layer and businesses will need to protect the users wherever they access the internet, not just in the office.

Identify threats within your Office 365 Email

The Cisco Threat Analyser for Office 365 is an assessment tool that quickly identifies security gaps within Office 365 email inboxes. It can find security vulnerabilities, and expose whether the threats are malware, malicious URLs, spam or graymail. The tool can also identify detailed information about potential malware, whether it has the potential to be a phishing attack, is a virus or spam that could be malicious.

The Cisco Threat Analyser for Office 365 operates in scan mode only, it does not read emails, and simply identifies further areas that should be investigated and highlights how many infected inboxes have been found and the potential threats.
