Your organization’s network and systems may be hacker proof, but are your employees? QinetiQ North America today unveiled a security solution designed for government customers to detect social engineering attacks, through the use of Email Intent Analysis, real-time URL, link analysis and high-value target protection.
The Social Engineering Protection Appliance, or SEPA, helps protect government employees from falling prey to these attempts to extract vital information. Based on technology developed by QinetiQ North America subsidiary Cyveillance, the product will aid government agencies to identify infiltration attempts, espionage and foreign threats.
SEPA is also able to examine the content and context of an email, along with the methods and behavior of embedded web page links, to judge the trustworthiness of the email.
“With the popularity of social media and today’s open government initiatives, there is more access to information about government leaders and agencies than ever before, making it easier for criminals and malicious organizations to develop targeted attacks,” said David Papas, vice president, Cyber Security Business of QinetiQ North America. “SEPA provides government organizations with the critical intelligence and analysis necessary to identify socially engineered attacks, protect individuals’ data and ensure the safety of critical information.”
