What is Channel Security.

Channel security continuously monitors the pathways between systems to protect the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of data from cyber threats by scanning all traffic and quarantining suspected bad actors in real-time.Typical channels include email, chat services and online access to cloud-based file storage and application services.

Phishing Protection

Phishing is a prevalent email or chat group-based attack where malicious actors impersonate legitimate entities to deceive recipients. Channel security solutions include phishing detection and prevention mechanisms to identify and block such messages or emails.

Spam Filtering

Email inboxes are inundated with spam messages, which include unwanted advertisements or phishing attempts. Spam filters automatically identify and move such messages to a separate folder or quarantine them to reduce user exposure.

Authentication Protocols

To prevent email spoofing and unauthorized use of email domains, authentication protocols like SPF (Sender Policy Framework), DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail), and DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) are used. These protocols help verify the authenticity of email senders and ensure emails are not tampered with.

End-to-End Encryption

Encrypting files and messages end-to-end on a channel ensures that only the intended recipient can decrypt and read the message. Popular email encryption methods include S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) and PGP (Pretty Good Privacy).

Secure Email Gateways (SEGs)

Secure email gateways act as a filter between the email server and the recipient's inbox. Scanning incoming and outgoing emails for threats, malware, and suspicious content.

User Education and Training

Employees and email users should be educated about email security best practices, including recognizing phishing attempts, avoiding clicking on suspicious links, and reporting potential threats promptly.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Enabling MFA for email and chat accounts adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide additional authentication factors (e.g., a one-time code sent to their mobile device) in addition to their password.

Incident Response Plan

Organizations should have an incident response plan in place to address channel security breaches promptly. This plan includes steps for identifying, containing, and mitigating the impact of a security incident.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

DLP solutions help prevent sensitive information from being sent via channels by monitoring outgoing communications and blocking or encrypting messages that contain confidential data.
