Email Security – It Is A Must Have
How good is your email security?
Every business relies on email as a primary means of communication. It is essential that email security is at the forefront of business security strategy. However, email remains the number one vehicle for cyber attacks. More than ninety percent of attacks made by cybercriminals is via email. The most common and well-known email threats are malware and phishing. You need to deploy a protection service that can prevent known email-borne threats but also new and emerging threats that many other email services cannot identify.
The cost of spam email is more expensive than many companies think. Time is lost by employees trawling through and deleting spam emails. Malicious attachments and links increase email security threats.
Phishing imposters attack by using fraudulent email addresses or impersonate trusted contacts. Their aim is usually to obtain confidential information that can be used or sold to other cybercriminals.
Malware email attachments contain code exploits that can make your device download more malware from malicious websites. The malware landscape is continually evolving so you need top-quality defense.
A ransomware attack allows hackers to access confidential data and systems by encrypting them or blocking access. They demand a ransom is paid in order to regain access. Payment usually fails and the systems remain locked.
