Topsec blended threats security
Targeted blended threat attacks use social engineering techniques, for example email messages that appear to be from a trusted sender, but actually contain a link to a malicious website.
Topsec Blended Threats intercepts targeted attacks and blended threats using real-time behavioural analysis and content inspection to block any site that serves suspicious or malicious code.
Criminals who organise targeted attacks based on blended threat emails use social engineering techniques to craft email messages that appear to be from a trusted sender but actually contain a link to a website hosting malicious code. They will then use a variety of tools for greater access to information and systems.
Topsec Blended Threats provides a powerful solution to targeted attacks and blended threats. Using real-time behavioural analysis and content inspection, the service blocks any site serving suspicious or malicious code and, because the service doesn’t rely on signatures, it is never out of date when it comes to catching and neutralizing new exploits.
Incoming emails are scanned and, if the system decides that a URL in the message body needs to be analysed, it rewrites the URL, prepending it with a unique customer reference and a link to the Topsec Blended Threats service.
When a user clicks on the link, the request is directed through to the Topsec Blended Threats service for analysis, subjecting it to numerous checks for behaviour and intent. If the webpage is free from malicious code, it is served to the user. If not, then the user receives a blocked page notification explaining that he or she has been protected from a targeted attack.
