Email Exposure Check

Are any of your organisation's email addresses exposed on the internet, making you a target for phishing attacks?

This tool allows you to see which of your corporate email addresses have been exposed online, making it easy for cyber criminals to launch social engineering, spear-phishing and ransomware attacks on your organisation. The more email addresses exposed, the higher your risk and the more likely that criminals will leverage this information against you.

Domain Spoof Test

Can hackers spoof an email address of your own domain?

Exposed email addresses can make it easy for cyber criminals to launch complex social engineering and spear-phishing attacks against your organisation. Are you aware that one of the first things hackers will try is to spoof your CEO's email address? If they are able to commit CEO Fraud, it will be easy for them to penetrate your network and gain access to your sensitive data. This free test allows you to find out if your email server is configured incorrectly, leaving your domain open to spoofed attacks.

Weak Password Test

Did you know that over 80% of hacking-related breaches used either stolen and/or weak passwords?

How many of your users are using 'password123' to secure your organisation's sensitive data? Cyber criminals understand that employees are the weakest link in network security, often using weak passwords and falling for phishing and social engineering attacks. This free tool can be downloaded and run on your Active Directory server to report on passwords that are weak, duplicated, empty, set to never expire, and more.

Mailserver Assessment

Email is still the number one attack vector. Do you know if hackers can get through your mail filters?

This Mailserver Assessment tool gives you a quick insight into how your mailserver handles test messages that contain a variety of message types - including attachments with password-protected, macro zipped, .exe files, spoofed domains and more. Over 40 different test messages are sent to test the effectiveness of your mail filtering rules, exposing potential vulnerabilities and validating that your current filtering rules work as expected. All test messages are simulated 100% non-malicious.

Breached Password Test

Are your employees using passwords that are known to cyber criminals?

Recent studies have shown that 25% of staff are using the same password for all logins. What if that password was available on the dark web, compiled as part of a data breach list or spambot? Cyber criminals compile any data they can from data breaches, usually in the form of lists containing email addresses and passwords. Often, they will leverage Credential Stuffing to test these email/password combinations on as many services as possible, in order to breach them too.

This free Active Directory tool can tell if your users are using breached passwords today:

Phish Alert Button

Do your users know what to do when they receive a suspicious email?

Should they call the helpdesk, or forward it? Do they know how to forward it while preserving all headers? Should they just delete it, or forfeit the chance of early warning? This Phish Alert button gives your users a quick and easy way to report suspect emails to your security team - forwarding the email as an attachment with headers intact to you, while simultaneously deleting the mail from the users inbox. The Phish Alert button is an easy and highly effective way to improve the security culture within your organisation.

Domain Doppelganger

Are there dangerous look-alike domains on the internet that could be used against you?

Our new Domain Doppelganger tool makes it easy for you to identify your potential "evil domain twins" before they can be used to hurt your business, by providing you with a report on any websites out there that may be attempting to impersonate your primary domain.
