Intelligent email scanning, also known as smart or advanced email scanning, refers to the use of sophisticated algorithms and technologies to analyze the content of emails in a way that goes beyond simple keyword filtering or basic spam detection. The primary goal of intelligent email scanning is to enhance email security and efficiency by identifying and addressing a broader range of email threats and by improving the management of email communications.

Key aspects of intelligent email scanning include:

Content Analysis

It involves examining the text, attachments, and metadata within emails to identify potential threats, including malware, phishing attempts, and other malicious content.

Machine Learning and AI

Many intelligent email scanning systems use machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to continuously improve their ability to detect evolving email threats by learning from patterns and anomalies in email traffic.

Behavioral Analysis

Some solutions analyze email behavior across an organization to detect unusual patterns, such as sudden spikes in outgoing emails, which may indicate a compromised email account.

URL and Link Analysis

Scanning the URLs and hyperlinks in emails to determine if they lead to malicious websites, phishing pages, or other risky destinations.

Attachment Analysis

Scanning and sandboxing email attachments to check for malware, potentially dangerous file types, or unusual file behavior.

Anomaly Detection

Identifying deviations from normal email behavior, such as a sudden increase in email traffic or the use of suspicious sender addresses.

Threat Intelligence Integration

Incorporating threat intelligence feeds and databases to cross-reference email content and sender information with known malicious indicators.

Intelligent email scanning is used to combat various email-related threats, including:

  • Phishing: Detecting emails that attempt to trick users into revealing sensitive information or clicking on malicious links.
  • Malware and Ransomware: Identifying emails with malicious attachments or links that may deliver malware or ransomware.
  • Spam and Unwanted Content: Filtering out spam emails and unwanted marketing messages.

Business Email Compromise (BEC)

Detecting fraudulent emails that attempt to impersonate executives or employees to deceive recipients into taking harmful actions.

Data Leakage Prevention

Scanning for sensitive information leaks and ensuring that confidential data is not unintentionally shared in emails.

Compliance management is often overseen by a dedicated compliance department or officer and is an integral part of corporate governance. It helps organizations operate responsibly and mitigate legal, financial, and reputational risks associated with non-compliance.
