The Epitome of Innovation and Technology

Technology in the field of email security is dynamic and it demands constant innovation.

The forward-thinking approach is exemplified by two pioneering advances in 2023: the introduction of the first robust protection against QR code phishing (“quishing”) using image recognition technology, and the deployment of proprietary GenAI Decoder™ to combat AI generated Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks. These AI-powered detection engines represent a leap in preventing novel cyber threats. 

Another field Perception Point has led the pack in for years is the protection of collaboration channels and cloud storage apps in addition to email services (OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams, Google Workspace apps, Salesforce, Slack and more). In the past few months more and more email security vendors have sought to cover these channels.  

These innovations not only address current challenges but also set new benchmarks, establishing Perception Point as a trailblazer in the email security landscape.
