Email risk is a reality for every educational institution

Educational institutions - whether K-12 or universities - want their students to have an open, transparent, and secure learning experience. Cybercriminals exploit this transparency by using impersonation and social engineering to target the human layer of campuses - students, faculty, and staff. 

The 2021 Verizon DBIR found that 50% of breaches in the Education sector involved social engineering. Around 80% of these social engineering breaches involved Pretexting as a tactic, which is heavily associated with Business Email Compromise.

Education's Unique Email Security Challenges

With a diverse set of stakeholders and an attack surface that increases with every new semester, educational institutions deal with unique email security challenges.

  • Lean IT and Security Teams

    Your teams have a lot on their plate and often lack the time and resources to triage and respond to high-volume email threats.

  • Weaponized Transparency

    Your institution has open staff directories and contact details for transparency - but that leaves the door ajar for a variety of email impersonation attacks.

  • Device and Application Sprawl

    Your students have multiple email IDs, bring their own devices, and work across many cloud applications for daily work. All those email IDs and apps are potential entry points for compromise.

  • Productive (But Risky) Behaviors

    Your students and staff may think of security as a blocker, using personal VPNs and executing workarounds for ease of work. This fogs over visibility for security teams and can lead to email account compromise.

Wow! Here’s a technology that solves the problem for us. We’re tired of saying sorry to our clients and other stakeholders.

How Armorblox Secures Campuses Against Email Compromise

Armorblox helps educational institutions communicate more securely over email using the power of Natural Language Understanding (NLU). Armorblox connects over APIs to understand the content and context of communications and secures the human layer from compromise. Educational institutions use Armorblox to stop BEC and targeted email attacks, protect sensitive PII and PCI, and reduce phishing response times for user-reported threats.

Security powered by understanding

Stop Targeted Email Attacks

Armorblox looks at thousands of signals to understand the context of email communications and stop email attacks that get past Microsoft, Google, and SEG security controls.

Email Impersonation

Stop scammers from spoofing trusted entities and inducing unwanted actions from target employees.

Extortion

Identify emails where attackers claim to hold sensitive information in exchange for payments from victims.

Vendor Fraud

Detect compromised third-party vendor accounts being used to defraud you of money and data.

Context-aware detection

Detect Email Account Compromise

Armoblox stops targeted email account takeover attacks that frequently get past legacy security controls. We study communication baselines to stop cybercriminals from compromising faculty and student email accounts to launch attacks and exfiltrate sensitive data.

Credential Phishing

Stop emails that phish for account credentials, such as emails linking to fake university portals or Office 365 / Google login pages.

Anomalous Behaviors

Detect unusual behavioral signals such as anonymous logins, impossible travel, and sequences of strong authentication failures.

Data Exfiltration

Prevent data exfiltration by identifying unusual mail forwarding rules. Stop PII and PCI from falling into the wrong hands over email.
