Have you ever received an email like this?
(Note that we blocked out some identifying information.)
If you use a scanner in your office, you may have seen this type of email when someone sends you a scanned file. The one above, however, is not real, and if you click on the “Preview” button, you could end up giving up valuable information or infecting your computer with a virus.
Or maybe you’ve seen this email:
This attack is trying to send you what looks like an invoice to be paid. It is not. If you click on the PDF, you will be redirected to a malicious website.

All of these examples share a few things in common. They look like emails you receive on a daily basis. They are also all bad, meaning that if you engage with them, they can steal your passwords or other information, or cause your computer to do things you don’t want it to.
Hackers are getting really good at sending emails that look like they’re real and safe.
They want you to think that everything’s okay. Unfortunately, it’s not.
Because they are so good at disguising their intentions, it can be really difficult, even for the most trained eye, to determine if an email is legitimate or not. When there are so many other competing priorities, it can be really easy to click on a convincing-looking email without realizing it.
Unfortunately, with too many existing security solutions, you’re leaving too much to chance. Some solutions aren’t good at effectively filtering the good from the bad. Others leave bad emails in the inbox for as long as five minutes before deciding it should be removed. Either way, that leaves too much room for error.
