The system will conduct checks on 4 main scopes for phishing emails:
- Scope 1: Mail headers (headers)
Analyze headers and perform a forgery check
Checking email headers is one of the important ways to detect and prevent email phishing. Attackers often use fake or misleading email headers to fool email recipients.
According to the illustration, with the payment request header, the Mail Gateway EG-Platform system will analyze this as a header related to sensitive financial information. Thereby, the system will automatically check, identify and prevent forgery signs of a phishing email before they are sent to the recipient’s mailbox.
- Scope 2: Sender Authentication
Email sender authentication is one of the most effective ways to combat phishing attacks. The phishing email is usually done by spoofing the identity of the email sender to trick the recipient into providing personal information or money.
When the EG-Platform system confirms that an email is from a bogus sender and violates security guidelines based on the data the technology has learned and collected, the system will immediately block such phishing before when it reaches the recipient.
