The Importance of Secure Email Gateways
At least 80% of successful cyber attacks originate in an employee’s email, a statistic experts think is only going to grow with today’s dispersed workforce. While security awareness training is a great last resort, it’s best if malicious emails never make it to a human in the first place; after all, we all make mistakes.
One of the top ways to reduce risk in businesses of all sizes is to eliminate malicious emails by way of a Secure Email Gateway (SEG) that is expertly managed by veteran email security engineers.

Buchanan’s Secure Email Gateway Services
The average business has dozens upon dozens of security tools to worry about. Trust Buchanan to manage your most important tools for you. With a fully-staffed Security Operations Center, Buchanan provides 24/7/365 support for our managed SEG clients.
This support includes an initial consultation to understand your business goals and environment, implementation support and even full implementation for our managed services customers, configuration changes and updates, and alert response by our Quick Reaction Force.
Buchanan’s QRF is a pivotal piece of our SOC, available around the clock, 24/7/365. Alerts generated in our SEG are automatically sent to our QRF team, validated, and acted upon. In combination with some of our fully managed services, email-generated incidents can be completely handled without even waking you up, or if preferred, can be configured merely to alert your response team.
Our partners’ SEG technologies eliminate nearly all incoming spam. This almost eradicates the possibility that your employees are able to interact with malicious actors via email. Over a dozen sender, protocol, and content inspection techniques are utilized to detect spam, starting with general IOCs (IP, domain, reputation), onward to validation techniques, SPF, DKIM, and DMARC checks, and finally message structure analysis and other more advanced techniques.
In addition to standard static and dynamic analysis of files, sandboxing has become standard at sophisticated organizations. The technology is now affordable enough for businesses of all sizes to leverage, and there’s no reason you should be leaving your biggest attack surface open to constantly evolving malware. Sandbox technology gives you the ability to automatically run every file coming into your organization in a secure remote location, analyzing them for any signs of malicious behavior.
Beyond mere compliance, Buchanan’s Managed SEG combines best practices with robust technology in order to stop outbound data leaks; malicious or accidental. Our managed security team pairs your compliance needs with industry-leading knowledge to create a customized DLP profile just for your organization and is there to manage modifications, updates, and alerts down the road.
In the off chance that malicious content does make it past the SEG, our SEG partners can strip all active content from files in real-time, delivering only sanitized flat-files. This goes for any file defined by a policy with active content.

Strengthen Your Security Program
Cybersecurity experts agree: it’s not a matter of if – but when – your critical data and applications will be compromised due to a security breach or security event of some sort.
Even if you have technologies in place to mitigate the likelihood of your environment being compromised, you need to have a plan in place to deal with threats head-on if they do occur.
MDR can easily integrate with existing software and technologies in your IT infrastructure to enhance your organization’s overall security, keep your data protected, and detect threats that make it past your perimeter.
Mitigate Risks and Contain Attacks
While the enabling technologies behind MDR greatly reduce your chances of a cyberattack, a significant security event is still possible, even likely. How you respond to it is crucial.
If a breach in progress is detected, you have a better chance of containing the attack with our MDR service since our analysts are always watching and proactively hunting.
With Buchanan’s MDR solution, our team of analysts will take immediate action to preserve the integrity of your IT network and systems.
Couple these efforts with automated processes happening in the background – such as changing configurations in firewalls to block access, removing user accounts, or applying security patches – and your organization is well on its way to containing a breach.
Cut Costs Related to Managed Security
As IT environments – and the threats looming over them – are rapidly changing and maturing, it can be difficult to have the staff on hand to adequately address a security event within your organization.
Hiring security experts and keeping them up-to-date with the training and tools they need to do their job effectively can be quite costly.
Partnering with Buchanan for your MDR needs can alleviate this issue while providing you with security resources to act as an extension of your internal team.
Reduce Stress and Increase Productivity
With an MDR solution from Buchanan, you won’t have to stress about not having enough resources in place to properly monitor and execute a response plan in the event of a cyberattack.
Additionally, your IT team can be freed up to focus on other important, revenue-generating initiatives within your company and not have to worry about the day-to-day monitoring and analysis that comes with proper MDR.
