Armstrong Watson selects Tessian to enhance email security

Tessian Guardian learns conventional email sending behaviours in order to make intelligent predictions on outbound email in order to prevent accidental data loss to unintended recipients

Tessian, the UK technology start-up transforming the way enterprises secure their communication channels, today announce that accounting and advisory firm Armstrong Watson has chosen TessianGuardian to support GDPR compliance  and to enhance its email security.

With GDPR at the forefront of every organisation’s minds, Armstrong Watson was focused on building a resilient approach to keep its client data confidential and secure. Business and financial advisors are trusted with incredibly sensitive information and have a duty to ensure their client’s data does not end up in the wrong hands. Armstrong Watson selected Tessian Guardian to ensure they had intelligent security measures in place, without compromising its ability to seamlessly communicate both within the organisation and with clients.

“We all know that, while email is paramount to the way we do business, it can also be the source of legal headaches if not used securely,” said Toby Woodhead, solution architect at Armstrong Watson. “Of course, employees can also make mistakes, and the repercussions of misaddressed emails could be tantamount to losing business, not to mention breaking the trust of our clients. We witnessed this first hand after receiving an email from a third party organisation containing highly sensitive information that was meant for someone else entirely. We needed a system that would put our worries at ease and match our passion for protecting our client’s data. Tessian’s approach fitted the bill perfectly.”

Tessian Guardian allows organisations to automatically detect and prevent misaddressed emails. By applying machine learning to historical email data, it is able to learn the conventional sending patterns and behaviours for users on the email network, thus understanding normal and anomalous email sending behaviour.

“The speed and ease of deployment of Tessian has been unparalleled by any other solution we’ve dealt with, and has been our quickest GDPR win to date” adds Woodhead at Armstrong Watson.

“Great security technology should empower people and their organisations, and we’re on a mission to transform the way enterprises secure their communication channels. Misaddressed emails are a major cybersecurity problem that all organisations have to deal with, but trying to train human error out of employees is near impossible. Technology can play a vital role in helping mitigate these kinds of errors and ensure that customer data remains secure and private,” said Tim Sadler, CEO and co-founder at Tessian.

“We’re excited to be working with Armstrong Watson to help secure their outbound email communications and continue its commitment to security and impeccable client service.”
