Abnormal Security Protects Remote Workforces from Social Engineering Attacks with Cloud Email Security Integrations

API-Based Integration with Microsoft Teams and Okta Multi-Factor Authentication Extends Security Coverage Beyond Email to Provide End-to-End Channel Protection.

SAN FRANCISCO -- April 22, 2020 -- Abnormal Security, a leader in protecting large enterprises from business email compromise (BEC) attacks, today announced the availability of Microsoft Teams protection and integration with Okta to extend email security coverage and protect remote workforces from social engineering attacks. Seamlessly delivered through Abnormal Security’s API-based integration with Office 365 and Okta’s Identity Cloud, respectively, these new integrations give enterprises more visibility, extended protection, and faster response to email-borne attacks. 

Microsoft Teams protection automatically detects suspicious messages sent within a customer's Microsoft Teams environment, lowering the risk of phishing attacks infiltrating internal Teams communication channels. Analysis of signals from Okta’s Identity Cloud provides early detection of compromised accounts.

“With Microsoft Teams becoming a much bigger part of the business communications mix, especially with the shift to remote work, it needs to be holistically protected,” said Evan Reiser, CEO and co-founder of Abnormal Security. “Integration of Teams and Okta greatly deepens the Relationship Graph and Identity Model in our Abnormal Behavior Technology in order to protect enterprises regardless of how they communicate.” 

Abnormal Security’s Microsoft Teams protection is completely automatic. Following one-click integration through Office 365 APIs, the Abnormal Cloud Email Security Platform runs Teams detection in the background and surfaces suspicious messages as they appear. Security analysts receive alerts and can instantly investigate and remediate as needed.

Abnormal Security integrates with Okta’s Identity Cloud via API’s in minutes. Once connected, the Abnormal Cloud Email Security Platform monitors for suspicious sign-in failures, leading to faster detection of account compromises. Security analysts can opt to receive alerts for investigation or automatically initiate remediation procedures.

Microsoft Teams protection and Okta integration are available immediately in the Abnormal Cloud Email Security Platform. For more information and to schedule a demo, please visit https://abnormalsecurity.com/integrations/.
