Microsoft® Office 365™ is one of the best choices around when it comes to business email

It offers multiple tools and benefits for not only email, but overall business productivity. While office 365 does offer Phishing protection as an add on feature, for a comprehensive and real time phishing protection a true end-to-end dedicated protection solution is required.

Microsoft Exchange / Outlook running in a traditional on-site environment allows IT departments to invest in and implement anti-phishing strategies in-house, and also mitigate against other threats such as malware, spam, and zero-day attacks. Once the decision is made to migrate to the cloud, the same threats that once were handled in-house become more serious and difficult to manage with Office 365, despite all its strengths in other areas.

DuoCircle Link Click Protection Defends Against Phishing Attacks

The facts about phishing are clear: 91% of phishing attacks are instigated by domain name or display name spoofs in links sent within an email. As an example, the difference between “paypaI” and “paypal” isn’t readily apparent, but in the first example, the last letter is a capital “i.” If the email comes from a source that the user accepts as being PayPal, the link might take them to a site that appears exactly like the real paypal login. Once the user logs in, however, the attacker has the user’s paypal credentials.

DuoCircle’s phishing and malware protection defends against exactly this sort of threat: every link is checked against multiple URL reputation databases in real time, not only the first time the link is clicked, but every time. If the link is suspicious, a warning is issued to the user that they are headed to an unsafe site.
