How Vade is responding to COVID-19

In this time of global crisis, Vade feels a deep sense of responsibility to contribute in our own way to the effective mitigation of the pandemic. We have worked quickly to introduce a new feature to aid in the fight against COVID-19 email threats.


COVID-19 phishing emails

Critical industries like healthcare, government, and education are at the forefront of the crisis. Forced to innovate at rapid pace and find solutions for the unthinkable, they are being both targeted and impersonated via phishing emails.

As the majority of businesses moved to teleworking, workers were thrust into a new way of life. The pressures of juggling family life during work hours has created new opportunities for hackers. Workers are at risk of being distracted by a flurry of activity at home. The potential of being caught off guard by an alarming COVID-19 email could easily lead them to make a mistake.

As an MSP, it’s critical that you educate your staff and your clients about the latest phishing threats. Vade has assembled a host of phishing resources and tools that will help your staff and your clients recognize COVID-19 phishing emails and other event-based email threats.

Current Events in Vade for Microsoft 365

COVID-19 phishing emails are inundating businesses and making it difficult for users to identify legitimate COVID-19 communications. To give our partners greater visibility into the COVID-19 related threats transiting through their clients’ email, Vade for Microsoft 365 now features Current Events.

With Current Events, MSPs can see all COVID-19 email threats detected by Vade. Additionally, if legitimate communications were mistakenly misclassified, MSPs can remediate the email back to the user’s inbox. This ensures no valuable communications are missed.
