John B. Sanfilippo & Son combats persistent email attacks

John B. Sanfilippo and Son, Inc (JBSS), one of the largest nut producers in the world, has adopted Cyren Inbox Security to proactively combat ransomware threats and meet evolving cybersecurity insurance requirements.

For JBSS, its approach to cybersecurity is simple: a process of "continuous improvement." Their cybersecurity strategy is to stay proactive and ahead of any unacceptable cybersecurity risks, be they financial loss or reputational damage. Although the company had a handle on email protection, the dramatic rise in ransomware threats and changes to cyber insurance policies prompted the company to seek additional capabilities to improve their ability to detect and respond to latent social engineering threats in employee mailboxes.


JBSS was able to deploy Cyren Inbox Security to all users in less than 10 minutes. The JBSS team recorded an immediate drop in the number of phishing and Business Email Compromise (BEC) emails that bypassed Microsoft 365 Defender within the initial weeks of deployment. Cyren Inbox Security also provides JBSS with real-time and complete visibility into social engineering emails that evade Microsoft 365 Defender. This thorough visibility into email threats and the automated incident response provided by Cyren enables JBSS' security team to measure the reduction of time spent on email investigation and incident response workflows.


With Cyren Inbox Security, JBSS has also dramatically reduced time spent on administration activities, increasing overall productivity within the security team. According to George Johnson, Vice President of IT at JBSS: "During the Proof of Concept, we were immediately impressed with the effectiveness of Cyren Inbox Security and the minimal resources needed from our team to reduce email threats within our environment."


"As malicious content continues to arrive in users' mailboxes, cybersecurity teams are in a race against time to find and delete threats before they cause harm to the business," said Lior Kohavi, Chief Strategy Officer at Cyren. "Cyren Inbox Security has lifted this burden for the team at JBSS and helped them maximize their investments in complementary solutions like Microsoft 365 Defender and user security awareness training."

A new report from the Capgemini Research Institute finds that 51% of industrial organizations believe that the number of cyberattacks on smart factories is likely to increase over the next 12 months. Yet nearly half (47%) of manufacturers say cybersecurity in their smart factories is not a C-level concern. According to the Capgemini report, ‘Smart & Secure: Why smart factories need to prioritize cybersecurity’, few manufacturers have mature practices across the critical pillars of cybersecurity. The connected nature of smart factories is exponentially increasing the risks of attacks in the Intelligent Industry era.
New research reveals majority of large businesses can’t replace unsupported hardware, leaving potential vulnerabilities exposed.
With an unprecedented number of employees now working in hybrid or fully remote environments, compounded by an increase in cyber threats and a more overwhelmed, COVID-19 information fatigued workforce, there has never been a more critical time to effectively create and maintain a cyber-secure workforce and an engaged security culture.
Arcserve has published the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on current experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) around data protection and recovery. Key findings from the research show that ransomware attacks continue to impact organisations worldwide with high costs, but they are still largely unprepared. With 50% of respondents targeted with ransomware attacks, the research indicates the critical need for companies to take a new approach to data resilience that fortifies disaster recovery strategies, backup systems, and immutable storage solutions to prevent the loss of mission-critical data.
A survey of WAN managers has revealed that multi-factor authentication and single sign-on are the top zero trust features implemented.
New research shows Log4Shell detections tripled, PowerShell scripts heavily influenced a surge in endpoint attacks, the Emotet botnet came back in a big way and malicious cryptomining activity increased.
