Ability to sandbox attachments and detect malicious content crucial for businesses as ransomware and other threats become more common

MONTREAL, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - With a continually advancing ability to confront the latest email threats, Vircom today announced the introduction of Attachment Sandboxing to their general release of modusCloud, the company's latest cloud email security solution for SMBs and Managed Services Providers.

"We're excited to offer this new feature to our modusCloud customers," says Mike Petsalis, CEO of Vircom. "modusCloud allows organizations of all sizes to gain access to some of the most advanced email security on the market. Attachment Sandboxing allows our partners and customer IT teams to test the execution of attachments in a sandbox environment, meaning new threats can be identified before they ever touch an organization's actual IT infrastructure."

Attachment Sandboxing will bolster Attachment Defense, one of the tentpoles of modusCloud's Advanced Threat Protection suite. It is critical to preventing malware with minor variations and unusual signatures, or entirely new and unforeseen threats from compromising organizations protected by modusCloud. With more than 90% of cyber security threats starting with email, this sandboxing completes the Advanced Threat Protection that has already seen modusCloud block a plethora of new viruses and malware from Vircom's customers.

"modusCloud already included time-of-click URL Defense, Phishing Protection, Attachment Defense and Filtering driven by machine-learning," says Nadav Shenker, Manager of Sales and Partner Relations at Vircom. "Now with Attachment Sandboxing at hand, our customers have a complete defense against up-to-the-minute, zero-day email threats. This feature also gives them a more involved view of what threats are targeting their organization, allowing them to determine if they need to take additional measures in protecting their users."

modusCloud has proven to be a successful cloud email security offering not only because of its advanced technology, but also because of the profound customer service Vircom provides. Quick response times, experienced support representatives and a service-dedicated sales team have all meant that Vircom customers have little to question in proceeding with modusCloud as their email security solution of choice.

As Mr. Petsalis puts it, "we aim to provide the smartest, most resourceful offering on the market and target it toward those IT admins and Partners who look for great value and service quality in the security offerings they bring onboard. Our teams rally around delighting this sort of customer, and modusCloud is rapidly becoming their solution of choice precisely because it empowers them to do as much as possible to keep their organizations secure."
