Unsafe Email Is Just Asking For Compromise!

By October 16, 2019 Blog

If you believe your email is private and secure, think again. In today’s high cyber threat world, you need as much protection as possible. With more companies deploying Office 365, email security remains more relevant than ever.

Cybercriminals often see email collaboration tools like Office 365 and G Suite as high-value targets. It is never prudent to rely on one layer of protection. For about the cost of a cup of coffee a month per user, businesses can add another security layer to Office 365 to significantly mitigate the risk of cyberthreats.

Email continues to be the most common method of entry to the network. The following statistics are truly alarming:

  • 56% of email traffic is spam. 1
  • Email accounts for 94% of malware delivery methods. 2
  • 34% of breaches involve internal actors (which may be low because companies don’t admit culpability). 3
  • 29% of breaches involve the use of stolen credentials, known as credential stuffing. 4
  • 94% of organizations have experienced a phishing attack to steal user data, login credentials, and credit card numbers. 5
  • IT managed service providers say that the most critical security solutions are anti-virus (82%), advanced firewall (74%), anti-spam (63%), intrusion detection and prevention (56%), two factor authentication (55%), and vulnerability scanning (41%). 6
