Under Attack?

Email Security

Email Security

Protecting against email threats requires a considered, tailored approach supporting users and administrators in the battle against malicious actors.

Email continues to be the most prevalent communications channel for all organisations, this reliance opens the organisation up to a plethora of threats from phishing, impersonation, ransomware, and malicious attachments.Protecting your organisation and your users from these threats requires an evolving set of defences.

Protecting your organisation and your users from these threats requires an evolving set of defences.

The 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report states that nearly one-fourth of the data breaches the company studied over the past year involved phishing. The report points out that phishing, one of the most common vectors for delivering malware, also leads to a significant number of security incidents that may not result in data breaches, but cause network damage and downtime.


Tailored email security solutions will reduce the threat posed by malicious emails to your organisation, reflecting the technology landscape, operating profile and industry profile. Implementing and configuring the appropriate email security measures will minimise threat vectors and support your users in keeping your organisation safe.

Email attacks are growing increasingly complex and adaptive.

Attackers continue to evolve their tactics to reflect new technologies and changing ways of work introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic. Reduced face to face interaction means that other communication channels have grown in importance and attractiveness to attackers.
