What is Cisco Secure Email Threat Defense?

Cisco Secure Email Threat Defense provides protection against email threats that compromise an organization’s brand and operations. Its advanced threat detection capabilities uncover known, emerging and targeted threats. And it expands the scope of organizations' defenses to detect dangerous threats and rapidly search for and remediate threats across security controls.


Secure Email Threat Defense's Artificial Intelligence and machine learning models include Natural Language Processing to identify malicious techniques used in attacks targeting organizations, derive context for specific business risks, provide searchable threat telemetry, and categorize threats to understand which parts of the organization are most vulnerable to attack. Threat intelligence from Talos™ provides broader and deeper threat data that informs better and faster decision making.


Search capabilities provide access to message details that empower more informed responses. Remediating threats directly in Threat Response streamlines processes and saves time.


As part of a larger Extended Detection and Response (XDR) strategy, Cisco Secure Email Threat Defense defends against critical threats with threat intelligence, advanced threat detection capabilities and vital telemetry that informs strategic threat protection. In combination with numerous third-party integration partners and the larger Cisco Secure portfolio of products, this provides visibility, efficiency, simplicity, and telemetry to security operations.


The ability to orchestrate workflows in Cisco’s XDR solution simplifies processes reduces the burden on organizations' team so they can focus on more strategic initiatives.

Cisco Email Security is being utilized across our whole organization. It's actually a second defense hop into our environment that provides another layer of defense to combat malware, spyware, etc. We also utilize it for outbound content filtering, routing rules, as well as email hygiene. It has proven to be very effective for our enterprise as the granularity was not possible on our email servers and cloud provider gateway.

Cisco Secure Email Threat Defense is used as our primary email gateway. Although, we use O365 Exchange too, all of our corporate email goes through Cisco ETD. It is our primary security gateway for all email traffic. Also, it addresses our junk and malicious email problems/threats. We can manage the amount of unwanted email traffic being delivered to our staff.

Cisco Secure Email is an excellent solution for detecting and eliminating cyber attacks that are targeted toward our emails. My company has been using it for a few years and it has been paramount in securing our emails and actively preventing targeted threats. It has integration with Microsoft 365 which is an excellent feature for us. Filtering is extremely effective in detecting both spam and other kinds of malicious emails.

We have been using Cisco Secure Email for the past three years to secure our incoming and outgoing emails. Our setup consists of three Microsoft Exchange 2016 servers with approximately 3000 users. The main use of this appliance is to secure our emails from SPAM, Viruses, Phishing emails, and scams.

I implement Cisco Secure Email to prevent phishing, business email attacks, ransomware and spam, it also gives me better security for Office 365 email. With this software I prevent attackers via email to create some kind of sales scheme to scam our customers also these attackers can create business goals and false marketing via spam in order to get some kind of information from customers but thanks to Cisco Secure Email we can prevent these problems.

I use Cisco Secure Email at my organization for sending secure emails to outside recipients. I usually use Cisco Secure Email to send emails with attachments that may contain sensitive information, such as HIPAA. Cisco Secure Email is, as implied by its name, a secure email, which is exactly why we use it.

We deployed Cisco Secure Email a few years back, and it has been amazing when it comes to managing our emails. We are able to send and receive emails securely, and the software makes encryption and decryption of emails easy. With Cisco Secure Email, we no longer have to worry about malware, spamming, and viruses, among other email threats. It's an all-around Email protection software.

We are using Cisco Secure Email for all users in our organization and it's a very fast and reliable solution with lower false positives. It not only checks and blocks suspicious incoming threats, but we also have the option for outbound message control. The best part is that it has dedicated appliances for the on-premise organizations, apart from virtual and the cloud.

Email security is necessary for every company and needs to use it to block attacks. We have been using Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security) for the last 2 years in our company. Prior to that, someone sent malware via email to my organization and we faced many issues. We decided to implement Cisco Secure Email which has provided us lot of security from phishing attacks.

Utilized across the entire organization. Many of our workers are remote and the only method of contact is via email. Having a solution that protects against email attacks is key to maintain a functional remote work force. As we do see much value in having an email security solution.

I currently use Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security) to have clients send over/upload documents to me, securely and safely. It is currently being used by my branch and a few others throughout the company but not company-wide and not through our corporate office. We haven't had any issues with the program/secure email yet.
