Mail Security

Protect your organization from spam, malware and phishing attacks

UNDERSTANDING EMAIL SECURITY

Do Not Get Hacked by Email

Mail security is a set of techniques for keeping sensitive information in email communication and accounts secure against unauthorized access, loss or compromise.

Email is often used to spread malware, spam and phishing attacks. Attackers use deceptive messages to entice recipients to part with sensitive information, open attachments or click on hyperlinks that install malware on the victim’s device.

Email is also a common entry point for attackers looking to gain a foothold in an enterprise network and obtain valuable company data.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT

Users are especially susceptible to phishing attacks against businesses, because they sidestep technical security protections, and instead target human weaknesses to reveal sensitive information.

Email security should start with proper techniques like encryption, spyware detection, and login security, but it’s equally important that employees are educated on the proper steps that should be taken to protect email
