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.

  • Manages Junk Mail Well-We configured and tested our configuration to filter out the majority of junk mail hitting our inboxes.
  • Manages Graymail-We configured and tested our Cisco ETD for graymail filtering and reduced the amount of unwanted advertising and other legitimate emails.
  • Creating unique policies that were tailored to block or allow emails from certain senders.
  • Stopped malicious email traffic (e.g., malicious attachments and links) with rules for identifying and stripping potentially malicious attachments or links.
  • Allows easy configuration for other email security measures such as SPF, DMARC and DKIM.
  • Cisco engineers provide an annual free security health check. We took advantage of several security health checks where Cisco certified engineers go over the security setting of our Cisco ETD. We were provided a written report that highlighted strengths and weaknesses of our Cisco ETD setup.
  • Monitoring email traffic flow is almost overwhelming with the amount of information you can obtain from the portal. This gives valuable information to IT staff in terms of volume and type of emails the company is receiving.
  • The creation of policies and order in which they are applied to incoming/outgoing email can sometimes be a little confusing.
  • Testing of rules and/or configuration settings are done live. Would be nice to have a way of testing a rule and/or configuration before going live if possible.
  • Searching and extracting emails with ease/simplicity for eDiscovery or security purposes would be an extra bonus.
  • Having an easier method for setting up and sending secure emails.
