Expel Introduces Offering for Detecting Business Email Compromise

Expel, the managed detection and response (MDR) provider, announced the launch of Expel for Email.

Expel for Email combines the best of Expel Managed Phishing and Expel MDR to detect and respond across the entire email lifecycle. Our team triages employee-submitted emails and automates security operations across your go-to email and identity provider like Microsoft Office 365 or GSuite, as well as Okta, Duo, AzureAD and OneLogin. Expel identifies malicious phishing attempts before they lead to credential harvesting or malware attacks. If a phishing attack is successful, Expel then applies its own detection engine along with threat intelligence gathered from across its broad customer base to quickly find activity that doesn't look right - like risky config changes and attempts to bypass multi-factor authentication (MFA).

"Looking across our entire customer base, BEC attempts accounted for 50 percent of the security incidents our analysts identified in Q2 2021," said Matt Peters, chief product officer at Expel. "The rise in hybrid work, amplified by the increasing use of SaaS applications, offers attackers new ways to cause problems. Securing your org's email and identity providers is one of the best investments you can make to offset this increase in risk."

With Expel for Email, you'll get:

  • Fast detection and response to potential compromise across your go-to SaaS email and identity apps. Expel analysts quickly identify malicious emails, who else is compromised, and how to stop the attacker. Our bots handle the initial investigative work, arming our analysts with the details to apply judgement and give you answers faster.
  • Sophisticated detection of advanced attacker tactics. We take your existing signal and amplify it with additional detections specific to each SaaS app to stop attackers in their tracks.
  • Security coverage across the entire email lifecycle. We connect to your Microsoft Office 365 or GSuite apps, along with Duo, Okta, AzureAD and OneLogin, and investigate employee-submitted emails to identify phishing attacks, detect BEC and flag risky behavior.
