Enterprise Email Security
Email is the main source of communication for enterprises
and most businesses. However, employees go about their daily routine sending,
receiving and opening emails and attachments with little to no thought on the
potential risk that unsecured emails can do to the enterprise.
Email security is a critical risk for most businesses. In
fact, over 91 percent of all successful attacks on enterprise networks are a
result of phishing attacks and targeting an organization’s users via email,
which can cause serious harm to the company and the consequences can be severe.
As we’ve seen with Equifax, Target, and other severe
breaches, email security is not to be taken lightly. That’s why it’s important
to ensure that you’re network security, especially email security, is up to
date. Here are a few ways that you can improve your email security.
This ensures enterprises give email communications the
highest level of security they deserve. Email is generally unprotected, so when
you are sending an email, its transmitted in plain text across other local
networks and Internet. This gives hackers the opportunity to intercept and read
the message while it’s en route to the recipient. With email encryption,
unauthorized users on the network are unable to receive and read your email
message. This technology disguises your message and prevents it from being read
by anyone other than the intended recipient(s).
With the proper inbound and outbound protection solution for
your enterprise, you’ll protect your network against incoming traffic to your
network, as well as malware and security-related threats leaving your network.

virus or hack can happen any time. It’s important to have either a third-party
vendor or full-time expert available for 24/7/365 support with proactive and
reactive security monitoring that can monitor, react and respond in a timely
manner to eliminate any hack from entering your network.
