Email has been an effective way for hackers to get access to sensitive information since it was first introduced. Although email still happens to be one of the most common vectors by which enterprises are attacked.

Fremont, CA : Cybercriminals continue to advance every year as companies try the best ways to protect themselves from the latest data breach strategy. Even though sophisticated hacking stories often influence the headlines, sometimes the most vulnerable points in a company can be found in the least considerable places. Emails have been an effective way for hackers to get access to sensitive information since it was first introduced. However, email still happens to be one of the most common vectors by which enterprises are attacked. The importance of implementing email security cannot be exaggerated, especially as most enterprises rely heavily on email for everyday business communications.

Here's a list of best practices to maintain email security:

Improving Email Security Hygiene

Email security encompasses a variety of tools and processes that protect end-users' devices from being compromised through email-delivered attacks. With employees being targeted with phishing emails, spam, and malware, enterprises should install email security software in combination with anti-virus protection tools that can filter and block malware or spam emails from suspicious senders, IP addresses and clean up infected systems from sending outbound spam.

Protect the Email with an Encryption

Fully protecting email content requires both the content and attachments that are encrypted while in transit and at rest in the inbox. Popular email platforms like Gmail and Outlook don't have the requisite enough enterprise-level email encryption to fully secure organizations against all cyber threats. But third-party add-in encryption services can fill these corporate email security gaps.

Implement Email Server Protection

Not only can email services be hacked, but the servers used to store and send the email can also be hacked. Spam and DDoS attacks on servers can disrupt regular email transfer and processing. It can also be used by the hacker to send an email to the server so that the email gets blacklisted.
