For Gartner, Email Security refers collectively to the prediction, prevention, detection, and response framework used to provide access and attack protection for email. The field of email security spans gateways, email systems, user behavior, and various supporting processes, services, and adjacent security architecture.

Key capabilities of the Email Security market include:

  • Network Sandbox
  • Reporting and Conformance on Inbound Email
  • Content Disarm and Reconstruction
  • Anomaly Detection
  • Lookalike Domain Detection
  • URL Rewriting
  • Web Isolation Services
  • Time-of-Click Analysis
  • Display Name Spoof Detection
  • Domain-Based Message Authentication

The growing problem of phishing and impersonation can be reduced through education, user behavior mapping, content filtering, impersonation detection, improved indicators of identity in email, and time-saving workflows for suspicious messages — along with email security solutions.

Some quotes from the surveys include:

From the Founder

“As a newer and smaller contender in the email security market, to receive both the highest number of reviews and the highest average score was far beyond what we would have expected! A big thank you to all of our customers from all of us!”

— Gil Friedrich, Founder and CEO

In its June 2019 “Market Guide for Email Security,” Gartner included Avanan as a Representative Vendor in the cloud security market Gartner refers to as “Cloud Email Security Supplements.” According to the report, “Cloud email security supplements (CESSs) focus on specific threats, often in the realm of hard-to-detect phishing, and can leverage full access to cloud-hosted inboxes via APIs for detection and remediation. Most of these products focus on phishing, but some go well beyond to include sandboxing and URL rewriting/time-of-click analysis, thereby directly competing with SEGs.”
