Cybercriminals are profit-driven businesses that focus their resources on techniques and tools that deliver the greatest return on investment. Small to medium enterprises are often seen as easier targets because they are generally protected by less sophisticated software or in some cases not protected at all. Unfortunately attackers have worked this out and now realize that targeting a smaller enterprise can actually mean an easier path to reward in the end.
Spambrella research shows that attachment-based campaigns can actually cost cyber criminals 50% less than URL-based attacks, making their return on investment even greater. Phishing campaigns that utilized document attachments increased by 1,500% over 2014 to 2015 to exploit of this financial advantage.
Spambrella takes a unique approach to threat detection and email security by taking advantage of our enterprise-class Targeted Attack Protection analysis techniques and a cloud based architecture to identify and block suspicious messages. This helps organisations further protect their end users by adding additional layers of security that cannot be matched by traditional email security solutions and gateways.
Targeted Attack Protection (TAP)
Spambrella leverages the advanced power of Targeted Attack Protection from Proofpoint’s industry leading email analysis solution in order to provide enterprise level protection to effectively detect malicious attachments.
Advanced Malware Detection Attachment Defense uses the visibility and intelligence gathered from analyzing the email of many of the largest companies in the world and applies this to smaller enterprises.

Spambrella ensures all aspects of email attachment filtering meets the security, availability, and resiliency needs of the smaller enterprise.
Cloud scale, visibility and elasticity for malware analysis and sandboxing with global and immediate benefit to all organizations for emerging campaigns, with proprietary technology to defeat malware through counter-evasion techniques.
Used the software for: 2+ years - 5/5 Overall
With an ever overloaded department, and with cybersecurity skills shortage getting worse securing the I.T infrastructure.
Offloading the task of e-mail filtering to Spambrella has dramatically helped in the department's performance. The only drawback in our case is that the service is hosted outside of our territory and thus out of the legal jurisdiction.
I found spambrella to be easy to set up and has dramatically reduced the number of spam emails hitting our inboxes. It was easy to 'train' the software to release any genuine emails that were caught or add any spam that was not picked up.
Within a couple of weeks of use virtually no spam arrived to our mailboxes. Spam and phishing emails are a growing problem for everyone I'm sure. I now get a very low incidence of spam.
Easy to onboard my customers from another spam filtering system. Very fast and haven't had any downtime in the 9 months since I have moved to Spambrella. When I have had to use support, responses where quick. I had to move all my customers from another filtering system with little notice. After I moved my customers I realised how bad the old solution I used was. Contact with Sales and Support always been professional
The service is great at filtering bad email as well as junk email out while allowing clean email though. I have used a few other options over the years and this is the best I have found. Clients sometimes have trouble configuring their settings to how they want it to be. Or tag emails as approved when they shouldn't and need IT interaction to resolve. Maybe just ease of use or having a more clear way for clients to resolve basics on their own.
Robust, versatile, and reliable...
The reliability of the service and the level of protection that it provides. My spam levels immediately dropped to near zero.
There are almost no false positives. And I'm easily able to customize the level of protection with whitelists, blacklists, and sensitivity settings. I'm also a big fan of the antivirus and URL scanning features.
It doesn't require an arcane knowledge to set the Spam filtering up, the guides are straight to the point and support staff are very helpful. Functionality wise, in short: we do not get spammed. Thanks to Spambrella.
Archiving wise, the new solution is easy to use, searches well and fast and is by far the cheapest we could find at the time. Ten year retention rocks!
