The most recent malware, phishing scams, and malicious links may be prevented with advanced email protection, which is available for both Gmail and Outlook webmail services.

The world’s leading cybersecurity company, Bitdefender, has introduced a powerful new function called Email Protection. This feature scans and identifies potentially harmful content in webmail that can be viewed from any device. Examples of this type of content include phishing attempts and online frauds. It is currently possible for customers to extend one of the greatest endpoint protection solutions in the world to webmail services with the help of Email Protection, which covers both Gmail and Outlook emails.

Email continues to be the most common point of entry for cybercriminals to launch attacks. According to Statista, the number of unique phishing sites went from 147 thousand in 2020 to over 1.35 million in 2022. Furthermore, the FBI’s 2022 Internet Crime Report claimed that phishing was the most common complaint submitted in the United States, which was eighty percent greater than the personal data breach complaint, which was the second most common complaint filed. The findings of Bitdefender Labs, which followed suit, revealed that phishing attempts were present in twenty-three percent of the financial and bank-related spam emails that were examined.

The first step in gaining access is for users to click on fraudulent links or attachments. Threat actors are able to obtain control of a system once it has been penetrated, allowing them to steal personal information and finances, extort money, or demand a ransom.

As customers continue to access their email on a variety of devices, it has become increasingly difficult to provide complete protection against potential dangers. This is because it frequently necessitates the manual configuration and upgrading of email security solutions on each and every device that accesses each mailbox.

The inboxes of customers are protected by Email Protection, which is necessary because malware and phishing scams are always evolving. The configuration of each webmail account is a simple process that takes only a few moments and is very simple to use. After it has been engaged, Bitdefender will check any incoming email and boldly indicate whether it is secure or hazardous. This will prevent users from falling prey to malicious software or fraudulent schemes.

According to Ciprian Istrate, senior vice president of operations for the Consumer Solutions Group at Bitdefender, “Cybercriminals constantly look for the path of least resistance and opportunities for user error when infecting devices.” This is the reason why first attacks through email continue to be the preferred approach. The world-class cybersecurity offered by Bitdefender is now available to popular webmail services through the introduction of our new Email Protection function. Protecting inboxes that may be accessed from any location and using any device is made easier with the assistance of this tool. A paradigm change that cannot be refuted for the digital lifestyle that is always on.

Some of the key features and benefits are, robust email security, unambiguous labelling of suspected content, simple email management and reporting and email protection.
