Targeted Threat Protection - Attachment Protect is an advanced service, that protects customers from the growing risk of spear phishing and other targeted attacks using email attachments. This protection is provided on all devices used for the end user's enterprise email account, including smartphones or tablets, whether they are provided directly by the employer or not. 


It strips attachments from inbound messages that could potentially contain malicious code (e.g. PDF, Microsoft Office files). Instead they are replaced them with a clean, transcribed version. Employees have instant access to these clean attachments, but can request access to the original files via the sandbox by clicking a link in the notification. When an original attachment is requested, a detailed security analysis is performed on the file before it is provided to the user. This safe file approach eliminates the latency inherent in traditional sandbox solutions, confining wait time to only those minority of instances where an editable document is required.
