Expel for Email combines the best of Expel Managed Phishing and Expel MDR to detect and respond across the entire email lifecycle. Our team triages employee-submitted emails and automates security operations across your go-to email and identity provider like Microsoft Office 365 or GSuite, as well as Okta, Duo, AzureAD and OneLogin. Expel identifies malicious phishing attempts before they lead to credential harvesting or malware attacks. If a phishing attack is successful, Expel then applies its own detection engine along with threat intelligence gathered from across its broad customer base to quickly find activity that doesn’t look right – like risky config changes and attempts to bypass multi-factor authentication (MFA).
