Organizations today are increasingly turning to email scanning to prevent a wide variety of threats.
Email represents the #1 attack vector for cyber criminals attempting to breach an organization's defenses. It's no wonder why – email is the most widely used application for business communication, and employees can be notoriously naïve when it comes to spotting and avoiding email-borne threats.
With email scanning technology, organizations can automatically review every email message to check for viruses, malware and spam. Even more importantly, scanning solutions can evaluate links and attached files to identify malicious URLs and weaponized attachments that may be part of a ransomware attack. Email scanning services can also look for suspicious addresses, domains and other signs of email spoofing that is often used in an impersonation attack.
