Email Security

Email Security

Email is still a critical tool for businesses. But it’s also a preferred delivery method for ransomware, phishing, and compromise attacks in 2017. According to the 2017 Verizon DBIR report 66% of installed malware was delivered via email.

Industry analysts warn that advanced threats are easily bypassing the traditional signature- and reputation-based prevention mechanisms. They recommend replacing incumbent secure email gateways with a product tailored for advanced threat defense. It can also consolidate email infrastructure, such as data loss protection (DLP) and encryption.
