The Retarus Secure Email Platform is a secure, flexible cloud gateway for business email communication.

Munich, 14.02.2023 // Retarus is recognized among Notable Vendors in Forrester’s The Enterprise Email Security Landscape, Q1 2023 report. The Retarus Secure Email Platform is recognized by leading analyst firm Forrester. According to the Forrester report, in the email security market, “Capabilities include phishing, BEC, and spoofing protection, malware and malicious URL detection and remediation, email authentication, antispam, antimalware, data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, and phishing testing and education.” Forrester notes that Retarus self-reports that it addresses extended security use cases including Domain Spoofing Protection, Spam Reduction and Regulatory and Third-Party Compliance.

As a critical component in multiple business processes, business email is also the primary gateway for cyberattacks. Rising incidents of attack through deceptive phishing, malware, ransomware, and BEC are causing significant headaches for corporate email security. The Forrester report provides a detailed overview of current market dynamics across the email security business and guides companies in selecting a suitable provider for their needs. With its Secure Email Platform, Retarus self-reported that it addresses the principal use cases identified by Forrester.

The Retarus all-in-one service delivers reliable protection for business email against BEC and malware attacks, phishing attempts and ransomware and provides dependable data loss prevention.

Comprehensive, continuously refined phishing and virus filters is enhanced through patented detection and reaction mechanisms such as Retarus Patient Zero Detection, a real-time solution to identify and avert zero-day attacks. Already infected messages can even be retrieved from mailboxes post-delivery, but before they are opened, significantly reducing risk.

Retarus’ email gateway offers innovative mechanisms for detecting and repelling CxO fraud. It detects fake sender addresses used in BEC attacks, exposes these emails as fraudulent before any harm can be done, and quarantines them. When warding off novel threats, Retarus utilizes state-of-the-art, AI-based sandboxing technology. In addition to classic security features, the Retarus platform also offers functions such as Predelivery Logic.
