Harmony Email and Collaboration security 1. Block sophisticated social engineering attacks such as impersonation, zero-day phishing and Business Email Compromise (BEC) using AI-trained engines Built-in security is not enough to stop advanced phishing attacks such as BEC that involve meticulous social engineering techniques designed to deceive and manipulate end-users. Harmony Email & Collaboration deploys as the last line of defense before the inbox and secures inbound, outbound, and internal emails from phishing attacks that evade platform-provided security. The solution inspects the communication’s metadata, attachments, links and language, as well as all historical communications, to determine prior trust relations between the sender and receiver, increasing the likelihood of identifying user impersonation or fraudulent messages. It also inspects internal communication in real-time in order to prevent lateral attacks and insider threats. Figure 1: Phishing email drill-down view © 2022 Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.

Block malicious attachments before they reach users’ mailboxes, without impacting business productivity Harmony Email & Collaboration uses Check Point’s SandBlast technology, recognized by the NSS Labs as ‘most effective in breach prevention’*, and includes: • Threat emulation: evasion-resistant CPU-level sandbox that blocks first-time seen malware and keeps you protected from the most advanced cyber threats • Proactive Threat Extraction: cleans files and eliminates potential threats to promptly deliver a safe file version to users in under two seconds • Threat Extraction maintains uninterrupted business flow, while the sandbox continues in the background. Threat Extraction eliminates unacceptable delays created by traditional threat emulation, while instantly cleaning files of any active content, with the industry’s only fully integrated document and image sanitization solution 3. Protect sensitive business data and maintain regulatory compliance with advanced data leak prevention (DLP) Harmony Email & Collaboration detects sensitive data sharing via email and other collaboration apps and immediately limits data exposure. It enables you to enforce a data leakage policy based on your company’s needs, with hundreds of predefined and custom data types. When an employee shares data through their email or other collaboration suite applications, Harmony Email & Collaboration examines the subject, body, and attachments, and in the event of sensitive data sharing such as credit card details, personal or competitive information, the communication is blocked or “unshared” to prevent data leaks. 4. Prevent advanced account takeover attacks by augmenting authentication processes Harmony Email & Collaboration uses a patent-pending technology to prevent unauthorized users and compromised devices from accessing your cloud email or productivity suite applications, thus mitigating the risk of an account takeover attack. Harmony Email & Collaboration intercepts attackers using machine-learning algorithms, which analyze user behavior and feed off sources like mobile and endpoint on-device detection of OS exploits, malware and network attacks, SaaS native APIs, and Check Point’s ThreatCloud. Harmony Email & Collaboration provides additional data into the identity provider’s authentication process, so suspicious logins (e.g.: seen in two different locations, bad IP reputation) are immediately denied and blocked. *NSS Labs report: https://www.nsslabs.com/tested-technologies/advanced-endpoint-protection/ HARMONY EMAIL & COLLABORATION SOLUTION BRIEF 4 Bulletproof Security catches what everyone else misses 1. Inline API-based protection for inbound, outbound and internal email communication API-based integration allows Harmony Email & Collaboration to scan outbound and internal communication in real-time to prevent lateral and insider attacks within the organization and data leakage. In addition, no changes to MX records are required, making it invisible to attackers. By deploying as the last line of defense, Harmony Email & Collaboration trains Artificial Intelligence on the sophisticated and evasive attacks that others miss, leading to a 99.2% reduction in phishing emails reaching the inbox. 2. Part of Check Point Infinity, a consolidated security architecture, and powered by the world’s most powerful threat intelligence Harmony Email & Collaboration is a part of a consolidated security architecture that delivers consistent security across networks, clouds, endpoints, mobile devices, and IoT; powered by ThreatCloud, the world’s largest threat intelligence database. 3.

HARMONY EMAIL & COLLABORATION SOLUTION BRIEF 5 Summary Email is the first link in a chain of attacks, and with the rise of remote work, the use of cloud mailboxes and collaboration apps increased exponentially. Harmony Email & Collaboration provides organizations with complete, full-suite protection that is constantly adapting and evolving to the ever-changing threat landscape, while providing security admins with an easy-to-deploy and manage platform, making your security offerings easy and efficient. File-Sharing Security 1. Harmony Email & Collaboration secures major file-sharing services—Google Drive, ShareFile, OneDrive, Sharepoint, Box, Dropbox—from malware, ransomware, east-west attacks and prevents accidental or malicious data loss Through dynamic analysis in a scalable, cloud-based virtual environment, all attachments are tested and executed to ensure there is no malicious content. Harmony directly detects malicious behavior and quarantines files before the threat can spread. Custom policy filters allow for per-organization configurations. Each file is scanned and analyzed by Harmony for malicious links which we then block across all of your file-sharing apps. Every link in every file is measured on both a domain level as well as an individual page level, leveraging several major data sources for URL Block Lists.. Collaboration Security 1. Harmony Email & Collaboration adds security layers to collaboration apps like Slack and Microsoft Teams, protecting them from malicious links and messages Collaboration tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams aren’t inherently secured, leaving organizations and data exposed. Harmony controls access to confidential data, quarantines malicious content and informs users of security events. Simultaneously, a detailed dashboard updates administrators on security issues with usage within the apps. Harmony logs the total number of users, files, shares, links, logins, channels and threat detections.
