Why is email
security important?

Email security is crucial due to its central role in business communication. With a staggering 333 billion emails exchanged daily and employees receiving an average of 120 emails per day, it’s a prime target for cybercriminals. They employ tactics like business email compromise, malware, and phishing campaigns, leading to significant financial, data, and reputational setbacks.

Common Business Email Threats

Data Exfiltration

Data exfiltration involves the unauthorized transfer of data from an organization, either through manual actions or malicious programming. Email gateways play a crucial role in preventing businesses from unintentionally sending sensitive data, thereby averting potentially costly data breaches.


Spam refers to the bulk sending of unsolicited messages without the recipient’s consent. While businesses may use spam emails for commercial purposes, scammers exploit spam to disseminate malware, deceive recipients into revealing sensitive information, or extort money.


Malware, a condensed form of malicious software, is designed to harm or disrupt computers and computer systems. It encompasses various threats such as viruses, worms, ransomware, and spyware.


Impersonation occurs when cybercriminals masquerade as a trusted person or organization to illicitly obtain money or data via email. Business email compromise (BEC) is a prime example, where scammers impersonate an employee to pilfer from the company, its customers, or its partners.


Phishing is the deceptive practice of posing as a trustworthy entity to trick victims into divulging valuable information, such as login credentials and sensitive data. Variants of phishing include spear phishing, vishing, and whaling.

The Phishing Epidemic

Spam and phishing emails have reached alarming levels. Cybercriminals have been exploiting AI technology to create deceptive messages that are highly convincing and difficult to identify as fraudulent. These attacks pose a significant risk to your business, potentially leading to data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage.
