Securing Organizations Through a Dynamic Email Assistant

The email security industry has been talking about banners forever. Microsoft first started putting warning banners in emails in 2013. Recent debates pit two camps against each other. 

On one side are advocates who say that artificial intelligence is working perfectly at phish detection, and so there is no need for banners to inform email users about potentially dangerous messages. On the other are those who believe that the human factor is key, and that protection depends on making people aware of dangers.


In the phishing world, there’s even banner suppression, wherein the bad guys look for banners in email and use tricks to make them disappear, so email recipients won’t be alerted that something’s up. Who would have thought there’d be banner wars? Over the years the banner advocates have developed banners in various forms, and they all add value to some degree, but there are banners and then there are banners.
