Symantec launches automated solution to block fraudulent emails

San Francisco: California-headquartered global cybersecurity company Symantec has launched an automated solution to help organisations block fraudulent emails from reaching enterprises.

Called, "Email Fraud Protection", the solution is now available as part of Symantec's Email Security Solution and Integrated Cyber Defence Platform, the company said in a statement on Friday.

The solution aims to reduce workload for IT departments and eliminate the need to manually manage email security configurations while combatting Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks.

"Our goal is to give businesses and IT departments time and money back that can be spent elsewhere in the organisation," said Patrick Gardner, Senior Vice President, Email Security, Symantec. 

"Email Fraud Protection is a great addition to Symantec Email Security, ensuring enterprises are equipped with an automated and comprehensive email security solution," Gardner added.

The solution removes the need for administrators to manually set and maintain email sender parametres. With this solution, email authentication standards are met by automatic monitoring of approved third-party senders, the company said.
