Enhancements to University's Email Spam Service

Beginning Thursday, April 21, CaTS will be using Proofpoint's Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) service to help protect against specific threats that are distributed via email, including phishing and targeted attacks. These threats originate from malicious web sites which are triggered when users click on links in an email.

When a link in an email is clicked, TAP scans that URL. If the link is safe, the user will be taken to the original website. If the link is malicious, the user will see a page in the browser letting them know the site has been blocked.

TAP is being implemented as an enhancement to our existing spam filtering service. For more information about TAP, visit https://www.wright.edu/information-technology/security/targeted-attack-p....

For further questions about TAP, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827, or email helpdesk@wright.edu.
