Summary

EdgeWave eliminates email-borne security risks for organizations with a multi-layered platform facing targeted, socially engineered attacks, pre and post-delivery. ThreatTest, powered by EdgeWave, offers the world’s first managed, post-delivery anti-phishing solution. The company is trying to address the sheer onslaught of messages by ensuring those coming into a user’s inbox are ones they should be receiving.

The Threat Detection Center combines machine learning with expert analysis to automate the process. The center of the platform ensures information is shared among different components and that automation is always backed by human review. This keeps automation efficacy rates as high as those with human validation.

EdgeWave focuses on pre-delivery/post-delivery protection and incident response. Pre-delivery protection is achieved through gateway email security, AV and malware scanning and mail reputation with custom filtering rulesets. Post-delivery has inbox level protection, optional web protection of blended threats, and combines machine learning with human review. Incident response removes all copies of malicious emails, alerts and reports on malicious attacks, has security operation center integration, and offers optional file level ransomware protection.

EdgeWave tries to stay in front by looking for advanced gateways. The company focuses on advanced threat defense because these are the leading differentiators with security and, it believes, the most important selection criteria. EdgeWave pre-delivery gateway gives organizations comprehensive email security to stop spam, malware, advanced persistent threats, phishing attacks and more with less IT effort. Pre-delivery offers a variety of protections like email filtering, data loss prevention, continuity, encryption and add-on capabilities. It addresses these in a cost effective, easy-to-implement way.

Advanced defenses take a rules-based approach, combining the best of machine learning with human review to understand what a campaign is doing, create rules in real-time to block it, and ensure no false positives are being triggered.

Email continuity ensures organizations retain email services during disasters or planned maintenance. This allows them to access a rolling 35 days of email, and for users to send/receive email via the secure web portal. All mail is synchronized when service returns.

Charts have a variety of drill down capabilities. They can be populated with activity for detailed information on the mail flowing through a system. Each chart has drill down capabilities, providing a detailed information view for better summaries that show types of messages and what actions should be taken. 

Advanced reporting features include filters, categories, actions, dispositions, and customized layouts. Reports include instant spam digests, category summaries, message handling summaries, quarantine reports, advanced reports, and many more. These can be downloaded into CSV format and feature search functionality. Organizations can  automate scheduled reports they would like to receive on a regular basis. 

EdgeWave is a customizable, user-friendly tool with helpful explanations and definitions that pop-up in the side margins. Pricing is per user, per year at $2 each for on-premises or cloud-based solutions. They feature the same functionality and filtering tools, but additional customization options are included with the appliance. On-premises appliances start at $3,500. Additional service purchases include advanced DLP, continuity, park and pull, and push encryption.
