Return Path and GreatHorn Partner to Deliver Integrated Enterprise Phishing Protection

Return Path is excited to announce a global partnership with GreatHorn, the world’s leading cybersecurity platform for preventing spear-phishing attacks. This partnership provides a complete end-to-end phishing solution to our clients, enabling them to identify and mitigate not only outbound phishing attacks targeting customers but also inbound phishing attacks targeting employees.

According to the FBI, a sharp rise in “Business Email Compromise” (BEC) scams has cost companies $2 billion in the past two years, and, despite an uptick in employee education, they continue to be quite effective—23 percent of recipients open phishing messages and 11 percent click on attachments, according to the latest research by Verizon.

Some of the most devastating data breaches in recent memory originated from a spear phishing email.

With GreatHorn, Return Path can now:

  • Detect spoofed inbound emails in real time, even when basic authentication protocols like SPF, DKIM, and DMARC are missing.
  • Automatically detect and defend against sophisticated attackers who register domains that look similar to yours.
  • Unify protection against Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks for Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps for Work solution deployments.

Kevin O’Brien, GreatHorn CEO and co-founder, commented: “As we move into 2016, complacency around email security is no longer an option. Spear phishing incidents—already the cause for 97% of all data breaches—are becoming both more frequent and more costly. By combining GreatHorn’s depth of data and Return Path’s unparalleled email threat sources, we can uniquely offer companies a single and powerful solution that makes email safe for employees and customers alike.”
