Tessian’s mission is to secure the human layer by empowering people to do their best work, without security getting in their way.
We are thrilled to announce that Forrester Research has recognized Tessian as one of the vendors in the Now Tech: Enterprise Email Security Providers, Q3, 2020 report. Inclusion in this report is based on Forrester’s independent analysis of vendors’ capabilities and market presence and was created to help security leaders identify which solutions will provide the most value for their particular organization.
Before we dive into why Tessian was recognized, let’s look at Forrester’s definition of Enterprise Email Security.
Technologies that protect organizations’ email communications in order to mitigate and lessen the impact of email-borne attacks. These consist of on-premises or cloud-based email gateways and solutions that integrate with cloud-based email infrastructure. Capabilities include anti-spam, anti-malware, anti-phishing, data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, phishing education, business email compromise (BEC) and spoofing protection, malicious URL detection, and email authentication.
In order provide an overview of solutions, Forrester identifies four Enterprise Email Security Functionality Segments, including:
Tessian is recognized as one of the players among the cloud native API- enabled email security (CAPES) solutions. Importantly, this segment has high functionality in both email cloud integration and phishing protection.
Why does this matter? Not only do phishing and social engineering attacks cause the majority of breaches today, but according to Forrester, rapid adoption of cloud email infrastructure like Microsoft O365 and Google G Suite is forcing enterprises to move away from traditional secure email gateways and on-premises hardware. Organizations now often use the native capabilities of their email infrastructure provider, then augment those protections with CAPES or cloud-based email filtering. Security pros know that despite best efforts, malicious emails will inevitably get through, so they need a layered approach that includes both prevention and response measures.
It’s important to note that detecting and preventing threats isn’t enough. Forrester recommends that security professionals protect against email-bound security threats by empowering employees with phishing education and being prepared for the worst with incident response.
From our standpoint, it is because this is exactly what Tessian does.
Tessian provides a layered approach to email security by seamlessly integrating with Microsoft O365 and Google G Suite email infrastructure providers, extending their native capabilities, and protecting against phishing attacks and other inbound and outbound threats.
Tessian automatically safeguards against accidental data loss, data exfiltration, and insider threats, in addition to automatically defending against advanced inbound threats like business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing, and other targeted impersonation attacks.
