Who can use Auth0 Email Signals?

Security analysts

Auth0 Email Signals will assist security analysts with incident response and forensic investigations, as well as provide application security engineers with proactive abuse prevention accessed via an API.

Incident response and forensics

When security experts identify an incident, they begin investigation and response processes to determine if a legitimate security incident occurred, its scope, and the best way to remediate the threat.

Using the Auth0 Email Signals tool, security analysts can submit Email addresses involved in such incidents to identify potential threat sources quickly.

Abuse prevention

Using Auth0 Email Signals API, security professionals can detect malicious activity proactively, not reactively. For example, automatically checking Email reputation during the authentication flow can help prevent a large type of threat.
