“Tessian’s product is one of the top three I have bought in my career. I had eight people write to me, thanking us for deploying Tessian.”

Moving past manual solutions

Evercore is a firm with exceptionally high standards. That extends to deploying new pieces of software. In heavily transactional environments like investment banking, any downtime or performance issues caused by a new software product is potentially damaging.

IT teams often cite ease of deployment as a main priority for new software. Chris Turek, Evercore’s Chief Information Officer, understands just how important it is to deploy new systems quickly and smoothly.

“We were looking for the right data loss prevention solution for two years. We loved the machine learning-powered approach Tessian offered.”
Chris Turek Chief Information Officer

Incredibly simple, uniquely effective

For Chris, the beauty of the Tessian platform lay in its administrative simplicity. When Tessian is installed on an email network, it begins analyzing historic email communications retroactively to learn what constitutes ‘normal’ behavior for each user.

Within hours, Tessian was up and running, protecting Chris and Evercore’s employees against misdirected emails due to human error. Tessian has also been instrumental in targeting spear phishing emails generated outside the organization.

What’s more, Tessian’s platform doesn’t require large sets of pre-labeled data or complex integration processes. The add-in can be installed by simply downloading a file, and it can be rolled out to users at the IT team’s discretion. As Tessian integrates directly with Microsoft Outlook, Office365 and G Suite, all major enterprise email environments are catered for.
