NEW: Patient Zero Detection now also detects phishing

Retarus Patient Zero Detection

Welcome to a new dimension in email security. Detect infected messages in your inbox and protect your company against high consequential costs.

Good news: Cyber attackers are now feeling the pressure.

The threat of cyber attacks is growing. In today’s world, approximately 270 new computer viruses appear each minute. And attackers are becoming smarter and more selective all the time. Malicious software is particularly dangerous. Without any patterns, it cannot be picked up by scanners. All it has to do is make its way into someone’s inbox and the malware spreads throughout the entire IT infrastructure. The result ranges from massive disruption to total system failure. This is a risk that can now be substantially reduced.

Advanced Threat Protection & Detection

Protection alone isn’t enough. The greatest security demands require a combination of protection and the earliest possible detection. This was particularly important in the example of one Retarus customer, who monitored 25,000 inboxes over a period of 30 days.

Patient Zero Detection. Detect early on and then limit the damage.

The danger lies in what gets through.

Even the best spam and virus filters do not offer sufficient protection from advanced threats. A small number of attacks still make it through to the recipient. And these are often the cause of immense consequential costs for businesses. According to Kaspersky Lab when hit by a cyber attack, a large company incurs costs of about 861,000 US dollars, which means every second counts when it comes to detecting them. Attacks detected after seven days cost almost four times that of those detected immediately.

Retarus Patient Zero Detection

There is no such thing as 100% protection from cyber attacks. That is why Retarus has forged an innovative new path called Patient Zero Detection. This new, technology is designed to recognize attacks that have already occurred early on, making it easier for companies to add extra security to their IT infrastructure and significantly reduce risks.


Recipients of emails sent with malware can now be identified as soon as patterns for the four Retarus E-Mail Security scan engines appear. Knowledge of these “patient zeros” helps limit the damage substantially.


Retarus Patient Zero Detection informs administrators and recipients immediately of infected inboxes so they can respond quickly.


Thanks to Patient Zero Detection, metadata from the attack’s source and the group of recipients is identified, making the search for clues much easier. Targeted actions can be taken and filter settings can be optimized.

New: Patient Zero Detection now with phishing detection too.

And now Patient Zero Detection registers not only the attachments, but also the URLs in incoming emails as unique hash values (checksums) in its database.
Administrators can be notified immediately if a link is identified as a phishing link.

Still have questions? Getting answers is easy.

Try Patient Zero Detection now and experience the benefits of this innovative technology for yourself. You can then decide if you want to keep this additional security and continue taking advantage of the new analysis options.
