New: Microsoft Outlook Add-In for ITbrain Anti-Malware

The easiest way malware, such as viruses, etc. have spread in the past is via email attachments. End even today this is still the case.

Companies commonly train their staff in identifying potentially malicious email attachments to make sure those won’t be opened. However, all it takes is one person missing the red flags, and opening the misleading attachment for the whole IT infrastructure to be at risk.

The new ITbrain Anti-Malware Microsoft Outlook add-in eliminates the risk of executing malicious attachments.

How does it work?

While Microsoft Outlook is running, ITbrain Anti-Malware will scan all attachments of incoming emails. As soon as an infected attachment is detected, it will be put into quarantine. Instead of the malicious attachment, the user will find a simple text-attachment informing him about the cleared threat. This feature is available for users of Microsoft Outlook 2010 or higher.
