Trustifi’s Analytics Tool Helps Businesses Improve Security, Reduce Costs and Increase ROI

Just as a report reveals a targeted Microsoft security vulnerability, Trustifi’s new tool shows businesses how to get best-in-class protection at a reduced cost through a layered approach

LAS VEGAS, NV/ACCESSWIRE/November 14, 2022/ As businesses across the board grapple with declining revenue and a potentially sluggish economy, the leading SaaS email cybersecurity provider Trustifi launched a cost analysis calculator to help organizations reassess and improve their security strategies. The tool helps demonstrate that companies in various vertical markets can achieve superior security protection by combining Microsoft’s more basic E3 solution with Trustifi’s specialized and cutting-edge security solution; instead of just using Microsoft’s broader E5 solution.

Trustifi is simple the cost analysis tool can be accessed here. When users enter the number of seats in their organization, the tool immediately displays the savings on a monthly and annual basis that would result from combining Microsoft’s E3 offering with the comprehensive, sophisticated, and relays from Trustifi, compared to the E5 package. Moreover, a recent study reported by media like CPO Magazine and Computer Weekly showed that Microsoft 365 email security enabled some phishing attacks to circumvent its defenses, giving more credence to the layered security approach as opposed to a single-vendor policy.

Companies that use Microsoft E3 in combination with Trustifi will still benefit from many powerful security-related features included in the E5 offering, such as insider risk management, advanced discovery and auditing, protection and governance information, etc. Yet with this more diverse strategy, they will benefit from additional cutting-edge features such as AI-powered filters with optical character recognition to combat sophisticated contextual threats that now target many C-level frameworks. Users can You can also take advantage of Trustifi’s easy-to-use government-grade AES-256 encryption and one-click compliance capabilities. Additionally, specialized security software tends to be priced more competitively per user than some of the more well-known brands on the market. For example, Trustifi’s award-winning cybersecurity solutions cost $7 per user per month.

“There is a misconception that Microsoft’s E5 solution – or any single solution – is sufficient as an overall security offering,” said Maor Dahan, CTO and co-founder of Trustifi. “Companies now face a multitude of evolving threats from highly motivated malicious actors. They need to be more strategic in their security implementations. Combining the E3 package with a highly effective solution like Trustifi can provide more functionality In the process, companies can achieve cost savings, increasing the return on investment of their investments.Our analytics tool is an easy way to see how much companies can gain from this model.

The numbers don’t lie

A company with 500 seats will spend $28,500 on Microsoft’s E5 solution, based on the suggested price of $57 per seat per month. By comparison, the combination of Microsoft E3 ($36.00/seat) and Trustifi ($7/seat) would cost that same company $21,500 per seat per month. This represents a savings of $7,000 per month or $84,000 per year.

Similarly, a company with 2,000 users would save $28,000 per month if they upgraded to E3 and Trustifi, or $336,000 per year, compared to the E5 package. And either way, users get superior security with a greater range of advanced features, bundled together covering both inbound and outbound email data protection.

The CPO’s article on Microsoft’s recent email security shortcomings claimed that hackers were specifically targeting this vendor, working to “design and test each phishing attack to ensure it circumvents Microsoft’s default security defenses”. This scenario in which a major traditional security solution fails has become far too common in the market. It also illustrates how important it is for companies to layer their security stacks, ideally including a specialized solution that offers a wider range of advanced features. Such an approach is wiser than relying on a single vendor, even as strong as Microsoft.

Trustifi’s solution, for example, can detect content-based phishing attacks that many conventional SEG-based security solutions miss. SEG solutions are simply not designed to interpret the context of a message, such as a nefarious request from a hacked executive account asking for a bank transfer or sensitive personal credentials. SEG (Security Email Gateway) solutions rely on a blacklist/whitelist approach, which filters mail from known malicious IP addresses, but does little to thwart these convincing “impostor” attacks.

Trustifi’s solutions have been recognized by prestigious industry and channel sources including the American Business Association, Golden Bridge Awards, Expert Insights, CRN Magazine and Channel Visions Magazine.
