EdgeWave Announces New ThreatCheck Service Advancing Phishing Detection and Security Awareness for Customers

New Service Enables Real-Time Threat Detection to Foster Security Awareness at the End User

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - July 18, 2017) - EdgeWave, Inc.®, a leading provider in cybersecurity and compliance, announced today a new email security service, specifically designed to accelerate end user security awareness and advanced threat detection of real-time cyber threats. EdgeWave ThreatCheck is a user-driven, advanced threat detection and prevention service that helps enterprises extend security awareness and training to the end users. EdgeWave ThreatCheck is integrated with EdgeWave's award-winning ePrism Email Security solution and complements security awareness and training solutions as well as other industry-leading email security technologies.

"It's alarming how quickly Phishing attacks can target individuals and execute exploits within an enterprise -- with many businesses finding its end users as the last line of security defense," said Lou Ryan, CEO and Chairman. "With that in mind, EdgeWave has designed ThreatCheck to encourage end users to learn, engage and alert any suspicious emails, empowering them and IT to stop advanced threats from further propagation."

Phishing attacks have become common place for most targeted attacks today. In fact, 91% of successful data breaches started with a phishing attack. However, they've adapted and evolved -- combined with other techniques to launch blended attacks that are harder to detect with just automated technology. With its new ThreatCheck service, EdgeWave provides an incredibly powerful defense against any Phishing attack or malicious email threat.

EdgeWave ThreatCheck is an email security service that ties user-driven alerting to advance threat detection, leveraging EdgeWave's Hybrid Threat Detection Center, an integrated threat intelligence center combining its powerful iGuard URL analysis, ePrism email threat detection, and now advanced Phishing technology. EdgeWave ThreatCheck provides the most accurate detection and prevention of Phishing, Ransomware and other malicious email borne and blended threats. No other solution provides this level of accuracy for customers -- bridging the gap between technology and security awareness training to improve end user and enterprise security effectiveness.

"Businesses are getting Phishing attacks constantly. The evolution of these targeted cyber threats have transformed how security solutions protect customers today -- expecting robust and highly accurate detection," said Bob Crowe, VP of Engineering. "EdgeWave ThreatCheck makes it easier to detect and protect advanced threats with the most accurate approach uniquely available through our Hybrid Threat Detection Center."

EdgeWave ThreatCheck will be available for early release in August, 2017. To learn more about EdgeWave ThreatCheck, please register for our upcoming webinar and join our early release program.
