New Edison Mail+ Adds Powerful Anti-Phishing Protection to Android Devices
Premium security subscription includes anti-phishing technology invented by Edison to warn you as suspicious senders enter your mailbox, ahead of potential scam efforts.
San Jose, CA — February 2, 2021 — Edison Software, today announced the release of Edison Mail+ for Android, a brand new AI-based email security subscription plan offering powerful anti-phishing technology engineered in response to the $12 Billion email scam epidemic preying on consumers worldwide. The plan offers three new security enhancing features that can be layered on top of the existing Edison Mail Android app, including Verify Sender, Update Contacts, and LinkedIn Discovery. Edison Mail+ is available immediately on the Google Play Store for $14.99 per month, or $99.99 per year.
Introducing Edison Mail+
For the first time, email phishing scam detection comes to your Android device and inbox with Edison Mail+, the only app offering a critical extra layer of deep-scan protection to detect, warn, and verify potential email attacks as soon as they enter your mailbox. Receive a warning before falling victim to costly phishing, identity spoofing, and malware efforts.
Verify Sender, the vanguard feature of Edison Mail+, is a powerful new AI-based technical protocol that conducts a handshake between sender/receiver across inbound mail. If a sender’s email server doesn’t respond as “authentic” mail should, a suspicious email warning to the user is triggered. Verify Sender then applies a four-level deep investigation of new emails in real-time as they enter the inbox to assess for potential threats or scams.
Here’s how it works:
Edison Mail+ checks how trustworthy the origin of an email is based on whether it is a permitted sender by the domain owner or not (also known as SPF & DMARC validation). While some email service providers offer Authenticated Logo functionality based on an open standard called BIMI, which requires email senders to implement DMARC configuration and host their brand image at a certain URL– only 2% of email senders, and less than 100 of the Fortune 500, have a valid DMARC configuration and the adoption rate is extremely low (2% in 10 years).
This is important because hackers can still impersonate most of the businesses and organizations that do not have DMARC, and authenticated logos are not effective against those types of spoof-email phishing attacks.
With 98% of email senders NOT configuring their domains securely via DMARC, they require additional anti-phishing protection for effective security. Verify Sender is unique and set apart from anti-phishing technology offered by existing email service providers because it offers the following layers of security to cover the 98% of senders that do not have DMARC configured:
· Detects and alerts you in real-time if emails are sent from invalid disposable domains that frequently pass through your email service provider…
