Email and Email security has been one of the hottest topics in the news over the past few months and throughout this political season. Email security is a priority for all businesses, with the growing threat of hackers, viruses spam, phishing and identity theft, as well as the need to secure business information. In the latest edition of Ask Approyo, CEO Christopher Carter talks about Email Security.
What does Email Security mean?
Email security refers to the collective measures used to secure the access and content of an email account or service. It allows an individual or organization to protect the overall access to one or more email addresses/accounts.
An email service provider implements email security to secure subscriber email accounts and data from hackers - at rest and in transit.
Email security is necessary for both individual and business email accounts, and there are multiple measures organizations should take to enhance email security.
The Need for Email Security
Due the popularity of email as an attack vector, it is critical that enterprises and individuals take measures to secure their email accounts against common attacks as well as attempts at unauthorized access to accounts or communications.
Malware sent via email messages can be quite destructive. Phishing emails sent to employees often contain malware in attachments designed to look like legitimate documents or include hyperlinks that lead to websites that serve malware. Opening an email attachment or clicking on a link in an email can be all that it takes for accounts or devices to become compromised.
