Within two weeks of implementing Armorblox, it caught a client email compromise. We were able to quickly reach out to the client and head off any damage that could have occurred. Armorblox was the immediate identification tool that helped us take these preventive actions.

Attackers know the easiest way way to the bank is through email

The most advanced email attacks today target humans and workflows rather than any security system or architecture. By compromising client accounts, using impersonation, and exploiting existing email workflows, these attacks cause billions of dollars of losses every year.

The FBI reported that Business Email Compromise (BEC) and Email Account Compromise (EAC) attacks accounted for $1.86 billion in losses in 2020 alone.

Any email workflow that can lead to the transfer of money is a workflow that needs checks and balances.

Financial Services’ Unique Email Security Challenges

With email-based financial workflows and growing brand impersonation concerns, financial services organizations deal with unique email security challenges.

  • Lean IT and Security Teams

    Financial services security teams have a lot on their plate, often lacking the time and resources to triage and respond to high-volume email threats.

  • Client Email Compromise

    Wire fraud is often carried out from legitimate (but compromised) client email accounts, which bypass eye tests as well as traditional security controls.

  • Financial Workflows Over Email

    Whether it’s invoices, notifications from banks, or communicating with financial advisors, a lot of money travels over email. Attackers know this.

  • Credentials are King

    Many credential phishing attacks try to extract victims’ banking or wealth management login details through brand impersonation.

How Armorblox Stops Email-Based Financial Fraud

Armorblox helps financial advisors and brokerage firms 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 secure the human layer from compromise. Financial services firms use Armorblox to stop BEC, wire fraud, and targeted email attacks, protect sensitive PII and PCI, and save time by automating the remediation of user-reported email 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 e.g. iTunes gift card requests.

Wire / payment fraud

Detect emails that request fraudulent payments or contain fake invoices.

Third-party Fraud

Identify compromised third-party accounts (vendors, end clients) being used to steal money and data.

Context-aware detection

Detect Email Account Compromise

Armoblox stops email account compromise attempts that frequently get past traditional security controls. We study communication baselines to stop cybercriminals from compromising email accounts to launch attacks and exfiltrate sensitive data.

Credential Phishing

Stop emails that phish for account credentials, such as emails linking to fake banking 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.
