RevBits announces issuance of two U.S. patents covering next generation email security for MS Outlook users
Innovative architecture and methodology greatly enhances protection against advanced phishing attacks.
For immediate release
Mineola, NY July 13th, 2020 - Cybersecurity software provider RevBits today has announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patents No.US10574696B2 and No.US20190268373A1 related to specific methods for providing email security.
Patent No.US10574696B2 covers the unique architecture of performing deep level scanning of email at the client-side while patent No.US20190268373A1 covers an advanced approach to detect page impersonation.
"The architecture of email security solutions has barely evolved over the last 10 years and as a result email is still by far the number one source of cybersecurity incidents," said David Schiffer, CEO. "That is why we are happy that with our patented architecture, RevBits Email Security is now able to provide a level of protection that was previously unattainable."
"Traditional email gateway solutions are severely limited in their capacity to deeply analyze every incoming email and attachments because this would quickly result in unworkable delays in email delivery. Because of our patented architecture of performing the analysis at the client-side, RevBits Email Security has none of these restrictions and a much more sophisticated level of analysis can be achieved," said Mucteba Celik, CTO. "A prime example is our newly patented page impersonation detection that protects against credential harvesting via fake login pages. For this we are performing advanced image analysis on URLs that cannot be accomplished with traditional solutions. Image analysis is the only way to combat page impersonation attacks. Additionally," said Celik, "We are excited about the capability of the product and what it means for improving email security for organizations, especially for MS Outlook users as the solution currently only operates alongside MS Outlook (Web and Desktop) clients."
RevBits Email Security can be deployed as a standalone solution but just as easy as an additional security layer for existing solutions like MS ATP without any need for reconfiguration.

It’s a common misconception that the only threats to an enterprise’s security come from external actors. Whether intentional or not, 47% of organizational data breaches are the result of internal human error, such as a misplaced device or document. Moreover, some employees present an even larger risk than others. According to recent reports, younger employees are more likely to bypass security protocols that are viewed as an impediment to their productivity. When it comes to onboarding new employees, young or old, enterprises must have proper security awareness & anti-phishing training, in addition to a strong privileged access management solution, to guard against the different types of human error that could create security vulnerabilities.
Although email phishing has taken many forms throughout the years, the most common type of email scam is also the oldest. Since 2003, black-hat hackers have created domain names and web pages that look virtually identical to actual websites and have linked these copycat sites to vulnerable users via emails. It is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a real web page and a fake one, especially for companies without sophisticated anti-phishing tools. For all companies, it's important to have the best anti-phishing solutions in place to ensure all data is protected and downtime is avoided.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
