Sentinel Detects Threats that Email Security Gateways Can't

Sentinel detects threats that traditional email security systems can't. It integrates directly with Microsoft Office 365 APIs to detect attacks coming from both internal and external sources. It uses artificial intelligence to detect signs of malicious intent and deception within every email with virtually no I.T. administration required.

Spear Phishing: Sentinel stops spear phishing attack using web impersonation and high reputation links.

Account Takeover: Sentinel account takeover attempts and attacks that originates from compromised account.

Business Email Compromise: Sentinel stops Business Email Compromise and CEO fraud from reaching its intended recipient.

Protect Your Business Against Account Takeover

Corporate Account Takeover presents a significant new threat to business. Hackers gain access to corporate email accounts through stolen credentials and use them to launch subsequent targeted attacks, internally and against external targets. Account takeover or attacks that originate from these accounts are almost impossible to detect since they don’t leverage impersonation techniques—they come from a legitimate account and appear to be from a trusted source. In fact, traditional email security solutions don’t even observe internal traffic and have no way of stopping an attack originating internally.

Barracuda Sentinel detects both account takeover attempts and attacks launched from compromised accounts. By analyzing both historical and inbound data Sentinel is able to identify behavioral, content, and link-forwarding anomalies within your organization, and to flag and quarantine fraudulent emails. It is also able to prevent attempts to compromise employee credentials by automatically blocking targeted phishing emails that try to harvest employee passwords.

  • Prevent: Prevent loss of credentials by blocking targeted phishing attacks missed by email gateways
  • Detect: Detect and alert IT when an account is compromised
  • Remediate: Remove all malicious email sent by compromised account

Protect Your Reputation and Stop Domain Fraud with DMARC Reporting

Domain spoofing and brand hijacking are common techniques used by hackers in social engineering attacks. They can be used not only to target your employees, but also your customers, external partners, and other third parties that trust your brand. These impersonation attacks can lead to financial losses, as well as damage to your brand reputation.

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance) authentication and enforcement can stop domain spoofing attacks. Many organizations today struggle to set up and enforce DMARC on their own, leaving their organization and partners vulnerable to impersonation attacks. With an average organization having dozens of email senders that send email on their behalf, companies need to have granular visibility into all traffic that is using their brand to effectively implement DMARC standards.

Barracuda Sentinel provides complete protection from email domain fraud through DMARC reporting, analysis, and visibility. This helps organizations to set up DMARC enforcement properly and reduce the potential of false-positive enforcements such as blocking legitimate email or misidentifying legitimate sender.

Identify and Fix Your Highest Risks

Barracuda Sentinel leverages the intelligence from our machine learning platform to identify high-risk individuals within your organization. Once we've identified those individuals, we can tailor specialized training, including simulated phishing attacks, to test their security awareness and prevent damage from these targeted attacks.

CFO and Finance: As the gatekeepers of funds, finance users are a prime target for attackers who pose as a senior executive requesting wire transfers.

HR and Legal: Tax forms and other personal records contain a plethora of data that attackers can use for identity theft and to prepare for more targeted attacks in the future.

IT and Engineering: IT staff have access to sensitive data such as login credentials and intellectual property that attackers can use to gain to corporate accounts.

Administrative Assistants: These users often juggle many tasks for executives and are often given sensitive ogin credentials.
