Protect outside the box.

Identify threats within your Office 365 Email

The Cisco Threat Analyzer for Office 365 is an assessment tool that quickly identifies security gaps within Office 365 email inboxes. It can find security vulnerabilities, and expose whether the threats are malware, malicious URLs, spam or graymail. The tool can also identify detailed information about potential malware, whether it has the potential to be a phishing attack, is a virus or spam that could be malicious.

The Cisco Threat Analyzer for Office 365 operates in scan mode only, it does not read emails, and simply identifies further areas that should be investigated and highlights how many infected inboxes have been found and the potential threats.

  • Gain visibility into threats that may have gone undetected in your Office 365 inboxes
  • Identify security vulnerabilities present in Office 365 mailboxes
  • Determine whether malicious URLs, malware and spam are present in your Office 365 email
