Inbound and Outbound Email Security for Technology Companies

Tessian helps technology organizations stop sophisticated email attacks such as business email compromise and account takeover, and prevent accidental or malicious data loss.

The Technology Industry Needs an Advanced Solution for Email Security.


The technology industry spans nearly every other industry worldwide, helping fuel innovation and disrupting markets. While the technology industry is greatly diverse, these organizations hold one thing in common – they are a frequent target of today’s email security threats such as phishing attacks that legacy solutions can’t detect and prone to data loss from human error.

Why? Technology companies have vast amounts of valuable data and intellectual property being generated, collected, stored, and shared on a continuous basis. 

However, legacy solutions such as secure email gateways, encryption and employee training does not provide technology companies the needed protection and clear visibility into email threats, data exfiltration or employee behavior on email- Making it hard to prevent data loss and avoid breaches.


Technology companies are especially vulnerable to attacks and exploits:
  • Tech is the #4 industry for the average total cost of a data breach in 2021 – averaging $4.88 million (IBM)
  • 52% of companies in the tech sector have experienced a data breach (Hayes Connor)

How Tessian Can Help

Tessian has helped the world’s leading technology organizations protect against advanced email threats, such as data exfiltration, accidental data loss, and phishing attacks.
  • Detect and Prevent Insider Threats and Stop Data Loss

    Safeguard your extensive data and intellectual property from data breaches – avoiding negative business impact. Tessian automatically protects sensitive customer information and valuable intellectual property by detecting all sensitive data exfiltration attempts to unauthorized accounts and makes sure that emails and attachments are only sent to the right people. Tessian helps ensure continuous regulatory compliance without the need to create and maintain DLP policies and blacklists.


  • Stop Advanced Phishing Attacks Before It’s Too Late

    The technology industry often acts as a key component to business operations for all kinds of organizations, making them a frequent target of attacks. Tessian tracks user behavior and detects even the most subtle anomalies that might signal an attack at the first instance of an attempt. Helping firms stop breaches at a very early stage, and avoiding potential compromise to sensitive data along with compliance penalties, such as GDPR.



  • Gain Granular Visibility and Easily Report on Key Risk Drivers

    Tessian’s behavior intelligence model develops a complete picture of each individual risk profile across five key risk drivers and generates a risk score. Enabling Security and Risk Management leaders to understand and report the key areas of risk, easily prioritize mitigation actions and to make the right decisions with regards to overall security budget and resources.

How Tessian’s Human Layer Security Platform Protects Sensitive Email Data in Technology Organizations

Outbound Data Loss Prevention

Stop Insider Threats and Accidental Data Loss


Using machine learning, Tessian performs real-time analysis of emails before sending to automatically prevent data exfiltration and accidental data loss over email. Tessian Guardian and Enforcer use our proprietary Human Layer Security Engine that detects anomalies based on insights from relationship graphs, external data sources, email content and user behavior. No predefined rules are required to give organizations control over email data.


  • Guardian provides attachment scanning, deep content inspection and entity relationship anomaly detection to prevent sending wrong attachments in emails.
  • Enable specific use cases to fit organization’s needs and manage user experience, with flexible configuration options.

Tessian’s relationship graphs are continuously updated as email behaviour changes over time after Tessian is deployed, enabling Enforcer to automatically differentiate between business and non-business freemail accounts and ensure legitimate emails don’t get blocked.


Inbound Email Security

Quickly Prevent, Mitigate and Remediate Advanced Phishing Attacks


Defender will inspect the context of the email to determine indicators of an attack, notify the user, therefore not giving an opportunity of malware slipping through or the user to click. Defender protects against both known and unknown email attacks, including Business Email Compromise (BEC), Account Takeover (ATO), spear phishing, and all impersonation attacks (ex. impersonations of the CEO) that bypass Secure Email Gateways, Microsoft 365, and G Suite.


  • Automate Repetitive Tasks:
    Defender removes the burden on security and IT teams by automating repetitive tasks such as maintaining triage and review. This eliminates the need for human verification of email threats, reducing FTE requirements.
  • Context-Aware Security: Tessian uses natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to perform a content x-ray that detects indicators of attack such as malicious intent, impersonation, compromise, and payloads, resulting in more accurate security decisions. Defender also takes proportional actions based on the risk level of the threat, quarantining emails or warning users appropriately based on the severity of the risk.
  • Global Threat Network: This is an anonymized database of all of the spear phishing attacks Defender has identified. We see the same attackers going after the same sectors using similar techniques so by storing this threat intelligence we can protect organizations from an attack detected in their peer’s network.


Human Layer Risk Hub

Manage Threats with Granular Visibility into Your Human Layer Risks


Tessian’s Human Layer Risk Hub offers protection, training, and risk analytics all in one platform. It delivers a broad spectrum of risk analytics across outbound and inbound email threats to solve problems such as accidental data loss, data exfiltration, and advanced phishing attacks.


  • Gain a complete picture into risk scores and key risk drivers. These scores and risk drivers are aggregated at the user, department, and company level and are benchmarked against the Tessian network.
  • Enable targeted remediation with a structured approach to identifying and mitigating email security threats. The Risk Hub enables you to quickly view risk areas and drivers, easily prioritize mitigation actions, and make informed decisions.
  • Measure how actions impact human layer risk with dynamic cybersecurity dashboards and present results to company executives and board members, as evidence of technology actually reducing risk, not simply reporting it.



Remain Agile while Protecting Employees with Contextual Warnings


Tessian prevents users from becoming victim to an attack by explaining what is unusual about the email with contextual warnings. This in-the-moment training helps them to detect future attacks over time by continuously educating them about threats, reinforcing your policies, and nudging them toward safe email behavior.

  • Automatically build individualized policies at scale to reduce high-risk email use and track trends in unsafe activity over time.
  • The alerts are automated and highly targeted, resulting in low flag rates
