Radically reduce susceptibility to targeted email attacks
A cyberattack can affect your business in many ways, depending on its nature, scope, and severity. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), cybercrime cost $3.5 billion in losses in 2019 alone, with business email compromise (BEC) causing the most damages. That doesn’t include unreported losses, which are significant. IC3 received 467,361 complaints last year—more than 1,300 per day—with phishing responsible for 93 percent of email breaches. There can be a variety of indirect and intangible costs from attacks, too, such as legal fees, regulatory fines, operational disruptions, a damaged brand reputation, and other severe consequences.
In today’s rapidly evolving environment, traditional email security solutions aren’t enough to protect businesses anymore. You must also effectively defend against sophisticated email threats that are often able to bypass defenses by using backdoor techniques, including spoofing, social engineering, and fraud, to penetrate networks and wreak havoc.
While comprehensive email gateway defenses provide a solid foundation, using a multilayered protection strategy radically reduces susceptibility to email attacks and helps better defend your business, data, and people.
