Thwarting an email attack gets harder by the day. The threat landscape is constantly evolving as hackers devise new ways to breach your security through email, which is often the weakest link in your security defenses. From routine viruses and malware to a phishing attack, a whaling cyber attackor an impersonation attack, there are growing number of ways that malicious individuals can dupe your employees or slip past your defenses in an email attack.
It takes a multi-layered defense to protect your users and your organization from an email attack. Blocking email containing spam and viruses is just the first step. You also need a solution that can prevent users from clicking on a malicious link or opening a weaponized attachment that will launch an attack. You'll need defenses against attacks by malicious insiders, and against a spoofing email attack where a message appear to come from a trusted source. Finally, you'll need powerful solutions to stop the most advanced threats – the phishing and impersonation attacks that can wreak havoc and cost millions, and the ransomware attacks that can block access to your data.
