Forcepoint TRITON AP-EMAIL
Stop Advanced, Targeted Attacks, Identify High Risk Users and Control Insider Threats
Advanced Threats blend Web and email elements throughout multi-stage cyberattacks to probe for the weakest channel of attack, but this strategy also presents multiple opportunities to stop those attacks before possible breaches occur. TRITON AP-EMAIL secures the communication channel most often used in the early stages of an APT or other advanced attack to identify targeted threats as well as high-risk users and Insider Threats while empowering mobile workers and safe adoption of new technologies like Microsoft Office 365.
We live in a cloud-first world, with bold advances in technology constantly changing the ways we communicate and collaborate. Yet email remains the backbone of productivity, and it demands strong protection so your organization can press ahead with its work.
TRITON AP-EMAIL gives you the security you need by protecting you against multi-stage advanced threats that often exploit email to penetrate your IT environment. It applies real-time behavioral sandboxing, enterprise-grade DLP and other advanced defense technologies to identify targeted attacks, high-risk users and insider threats. TRITON AP-EMAIL monitors outbound email to prevent leaks of sensitive information, and it empowers your workers — in the office or on the road — to safely adopt technologies like Microsoft Office 365.
Seamless Integration for Greater Protection in the Cloud
TRITON AP-EMAIL is powered by TRITON ACE and ThreatSeeker Intelligence Cloud, which work together in real time to accurately identify and classify network traffic, apply policies and detect threats. Unified management and reporting functions streamline work for your security team, giving them the context and insights they need to minimize the dwell time of attacks and prevent exfiltration of your data. The common TRITON APX architecture also makes it simple to deploy TRITON AP-EMAIL separately or in any combination with TRITON AP-WEB, TRITON AP-DATA and TRITON AP-ENDPOINT.
Maximize your use and safety of email
TRITON AP-EMAIL identifies targeted attacks, high-risk users and Insider Threats while empowering mobile workers and the safe adoption of new technologies like Office 365 and Box Enterprise. From inbound attack activity to outbound data theft or botnet communication attempts, Forcepoint TRITON Email Security protects email communications as part of a complete TRITON APX defense against APTs and other Advanced Threats.

Stop APT and other advanced targeted threats
The Forcepoint ACE (Advanced Classification Engine) is at the heart of all TRITON solutions and identifies malicious lures, exploit kits, emerging threats, botnet communications and other advanced threat activity across the Kill Chain. This enables TRITON AP-EMAIL to identify the early stages of an attack. With its powerful malware assessment capabilities that include a fully-integrated, file behavioral sandboxing, it can even identify Zero-day malware threats.
Secure sensitive data against external attacks and insider threats
To prepare for a malicious Insider Threat or the potentially successful cyberattack, it’s vital that outbound communications be monitored. This is also necessary both for data theft compliance needs as well as for business requirements. Only Forcepoint provides the technology to stop data infiltration and exfiltration with capabilities such as:
- OCR (Optical Character Recognition scanning to identify sensitive data hidden in images such as scanned documents or screen shots.
- Encrypted file detection to recognize custom encrypted files designed to defy identification.
- Drip DLP monitoring to identify where sensitive data is leaked in small quantities over time.
Safely adopt new technologies like Office 365 and box enterprise while supporting your roaming workforce
IT departments are strained to maintain current systems while supporting an increasingly mobile workforce and the demands to adopt new technologies like Office 365. TRITON AP-EMAIL provides industry-leading capabilities that leverage systems and other information to control communications, such as preventing total access to sensitive email attachments on vulnerable mobile devices, while permitting full access on fully-secured laptops. These inbound and outbound defenses are all supported on Office 365.
Identify "High-Risk" user behavior and educate users to improve awareness
The rich data collections in TRITON AP-EMAIL are used by a number of policies to report and identify systems that may require special IT attention. They generate a report on a number of Indicators of Compromise to identify infected systems and more proactive reports on suspicious behavior, or even “disgruntled employee” activity as potential Insider Threats. User feedback capabilities help educate employees as mistakes are made, helping them to better learn and understand safe email best practices.
Leverage cloud services for performance and scalability
Combine on-premise threat defenses with cloud-based prefiltering services to preserve bandwidth with industry-leading anti-spam SLA’s. Or choose a 100% Cloud deployment of all TRITON AP-EMAIL services.
Block data theft with enterprise-class content-aware DLP
Prepare for the Insider Threat and malware data theft, achieve compliance goals and further mitigate the risk to personal information or IP. Advanced capabilities detect data theft concealed in images or custom-encrypted files, or even transmitted in small amounts over time to evade detection.
Threat Protection Cloud Module (Email Sandbox)
Integrate behavioral sandboxing for additional malware assessment
Supplement Forcepoint ACE analytics with an integrated file sandbox for additional deep inspection, and take advantage of behavioral analysis in a virtual environment to uncover the malicious behaviour of Zeroday and other advanced malware. Test files automatically or manually to generate detailed forensics.
Ensure the confidentiality of sensitive communications
The Forcepoint Email Encryption Module is a policy-driven technology that enables secure delivery of email communications. It eliminates the traditional barriers of cost and complexity by offering easy administration, without complex key management or additional hardware.
Identify explicit images to enforce acceptable use and compliance
The Forcepoint Image Analysis Module allows employers to take proactive measures to monitor, educate and enforce the company email policy in regard to explicit or pornographic image attachments.
