Secure your inbox and avoid business email compromise (BEC) with Coalition + Armorblox


Email is a critical tool for many organizations, but it is also one of the most vulnerable. Business email compromise (BEC) attacks evade detection by traditional security tools because they target humans. Our Claims Report found that BEC accounted for 23% of reported incidents in H1 2021. Once criminals have access to your inbox, they can manipulate coworkers and contacts or launch deadly ransomware attacks.

Coalition aims to provide its policyholders with the tools to address and reduce their cyber risk profile, which is why we’re delighted to announce that Armorblox has joined our partner technology program. With Armorblox, policyholders can secure their enterprise communications over email and other cloud office applications. Armorblox reduces the risk of targeted email attacks such as credential phishing, payroll fraud, vendor fraud, and others that evade legacy security controls. 

Protect your employees from sophisticated email threats

Cyber risk has become the great equalizer of modern business — every organization is susceptible to digital risks such as BEC. According to the FBI, BEC losses surged to $1.86 billion in 2020. Armorblox empowers Coalition policyholders to communicate more securely over email using the power of Natural Language Understanding (NLU). Armorblox understands the content and context of the emails, providing the necessary layer of protection against these targeted attacks. With Microsoft 365, Exchange, and Google Workspace support, Armorblox stops targeted email attacks that get past native email security to steal money and data.

Armorblox prevents sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands with protection against accidental or malicious disclosure of information, including personally identifiable information (PII), personal credit information (PCI), and passwords shared over email. Organizations can easily connect Armorblox with their abuse mailbox to automate the triage and remediation of user-reported email threats, saving security teams valuable time to focus on proactive compliance measures.

What this means for policyholders

  • Machine learning offers better protection. Armorblox’s advanced algorithms analyze thousands of signals across identity, behavior, and language to protect your human layer from compromise.

  • Prevent email account takeovers. Armorblox detects and blocks emails that phish for credentials as well as unusual behaviors such as anonymous logins, impossible travel, and strong authentication failure sequences.

  • Easy installation and integration. Armorblox connects over APIs in minutes without any MX modification or email rerouting. Prebuilt policies eliminate the need for manual creation and maintenance of rules. Automated and configurable response actions save time for security teams.
