Impersonation Protection and VIP Management
Impersonation Protection detects phishing emails that pretend to come from well-known brands or important people within your organization.
This option is only available with an Email Advanced license.
Impersonation Protection looks for two types of impersonation:
- Imitation of a well-known brand, often a financial organization or online shopping site.
- Use of the names of important people in phishing emails. You can add names in VIP management.
Impersonation Protection is turned on by default and controlled by Email Security policy settings. See Email Security Policy.
For help with enhanced email content scanning, see Enhanced Email Malware Scan.
You can enter up to 200 email addresses of very important people (VIPs) in your organization on the VIP management page. Emails are monitored for signs of impersonation of these addresses.
Go to Global Settings > Impersonation Protection.
You can manually add email addresses with the Add VIP function.
The Help me find VIPs function searches a connected Active Directory (AD) service for high-risk users. The more information you’ve added to your AD entries (for example job titles), the better the results are. You then select users from the search results.
