VIP Impersonation Protection: Key Features and Benefits

Guard Your Inbox, Guard Your Peace – Rapid Defense Against Impersonation Scams.

Why Choose Topsec for VIP Impersonation Protection?

VIP Impersonation Protection detects social engineering-based email attacks and stamps an email if triggered. Detecting and stopping these types of attacks necessitates a thorough examination of an email’s content while maintaining delivery speed.

Malicious senders have done their homework. They know the authorised person in an organisation. They usually target staff in the organisation who use names of senior executives or other key personnel.

These attacks rely solely on the name of the person being impersonated and thus usually escape rules designed to capture domain or email address spoofing. These attacks impersonate with a fake name, and bypass firewalls to capture domain or email addresses.

The attacks work by fooling the recipient into believing they have received an internal email from a senior colleague and causing them to take unauthorised actions (such as bank transfers, changes of contact information etc…) based on their instructions.

Client Testimonials: Why Businesses Trust Us

We really loved the products that Topsec provided to us. If I were to pull out a product that we are particularly happy with would-be Phishing campaigns, where it creates awareness among our staff for security issues, promotes awareness, and then Topsec follow that up with training. That’s one of the standout things that Topsec offers.

“The Phishing Training was particularly good. We had one campaign, and we had an extremely poor result. I think 50% of our people, opened and looked at a phishing email. We were very, shocked because it wasn’t particularly an important one. But it was a good one. It gives us an idea of how, they’re coping with unsolicited emails and phishing.

Before we had IronPort in place, and the main reason to let them go was that it was not cost-effective, and it was not providing as much flexibility and management to the spam solution. So, that was the main reason we switched over.”

ICT Manager- St. Michael's Hospital
The culture of response has always been good. We can guarantee that we are going to get a response, sometimes within minutes, which is, which is impressive. If we have a technical issue that we need to discuss with somebody, we always have those levels of support from first-level technicians. If you’re looking for what differentiates Topsec from its competitors that would be the primary differentiation.

Onboarding Process for VIP Impersonation Protection

The VIP Rule warns end users in organisations if they get an email from an external source that has a predefined display name of a person in authority that can request delicate information or authorise or request bank transfers or details. To create the rule we would need a list of VIP full names only, no email addresses are required

VIP Display name spoofing. The criteria is we get the Full Name of persons in authority from the customers we add those and variations of those to a text censor.

It will only trigger a warning if they come in from an external source.

The VIP Spoofing rule, matches human names in the display address of an email, against an internal list of senior executives. For example, we see targeted phishing emails that would have a sender address like

“First Name, Second Name” <>


“Second Name, First Name” <>

In this case if we “First Name, Second Name” on our list, we would stamp this email with a warning explaining that the email is potentially deceptive, as it is using a Colleague’s name but was not an internal email. The rule only stamps because false positives will occur from time to time.

The rule does not quarantine email. It only stamps it. It is solely based on the human name matching a list of known personnel in the organization.
