In an effort to help security teams make sense of the complicated email security market and select the right technologies to alleviate their challenges, Gartner divides the vendors in the market into four categories: secure email gateway (SEG), integrated cloud email security (ICES), native cloud email security, and email data protection (EDP) solutions. Gartner defines ICES solutions as those tools that use API access to the cloud email provider to analyze email content without the need to change the MX record. Integrated solutions go beyond simply blocking known-bad content. They also display in-line prompts to users that can help reinforce security awareness training and provide detection of compromised internal accounts. According to this definition, Abnormal is an ICES solution.
