Over 90% of cyber attacks begin with an email. Our intelligent email security solution, PERNIX, removes the risk of human error by ensuring users never have to make a decision about the legitimacy of an email’s sender, content, link, or attachment.
PERNIX delivers protection against impersonation, payment diversion fraud, spear phishing, business email compromise, data/IP theft, and malicious attachments, for just £30 per user, per year.
PERNIX uses advanced detection techniques and the latest intelligence to identify the good emails from the bad – quarantining those that present a security risk and delivering filtered, scanned emails to a user’s inbox with a traffic light banner indicating how secure the email is, and whether we’ve identified any areas of concern.
From the banner, users have the option to report an email as suspicious. This goes directly to our incident response team, who investigate fully and aim to provide a personal response to the user. The intelligence gained from these emails is fed back into the service, so we can instantly protect other users from the same attacks.
Your users will receive regular emails from the PERNIX service that summarise emails to their account which have been blocked and/or quarantined. You can choose whether this email is sent daily or weekly.
Our cloud-based mail gateway integrates seamlessly into existing mail services, such as Office 365, Exchange, and the G-suite.
The PERNIX banner appears on every email you receive. It uses a simple traffic light rating system, and is split by sender and content analysis to make it easy to see at a glance why a particular email may present a security risk, and which aspects could pose a threat.
Warning messages can be customised to suit individual business’ needs.
The banner also displays three links to help you manage your emails:
CORVID’s email manager is a web interface where you can manage your protected emails. You can review emails you’ve received, recover deleted emails, resend emails to your inbox, and release emails that have been blocked.
Encrypted attachments are commonly used by attackers to bypass security mechanisms. You could either permit encrypted attachments and rely on users being able to identify the difference between a malicious and benign attachment, or block encrypted files, meaning sensitive information needs to be released by the IT administrator, whether they have a need to know the information or not. Neither solution is secure.
PERNIX allows you to submit passwords for encrypted files, meaning you can retain confidentiality without compromising security or needing to understand every sophisticated type of malware. Our system uses the password to automatically decrypt the file, scan it, then release it if it’s safe – all without administrators being involved, and without security being compromised.
There’s no need for users to remember another username and password for email manager – it’s reached via a one-time access token link, which expires after 15 minutes. If your session times out, you can request another link.
Domain administrators can use their one CORVID Hub authentication method, which includes using their Microsoft or Google account.
