Email is a business necessity
But did you know that it is the most common way for cyber criminals to infiltrate an organization?
A Barracuda Networks survey of IT security professionals throughout EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) stated that 80% of organisations faced an email-borne, cyberattack between June 2017-June 2018. A majority (72%) of businesses believe that the cost of email-related breaches is increasing – a fear that is cemented by fact that the Middle Eastern spend of post-breach recovery sits at 1.43 million USD – and that's without taking the hidden costs of productivity disruption, and reputation damage, into account.
The threat is growing
A study conducted by the Ponemon Institute found that 73% of respondents expect the frequency of email attacks to increase while 70% reported being more concerned about email security now, than they were five years ago. Email is vulnerable to attack because of the growing number of threats including: business email compromise; ransomware; trojans; phishing; social engineering; malware; and spam.
While email comes with a basic level of security, often it's not enough to protect your business from advanced cyber threats. With attacks increasing in complexity and frequency – even against small companies – additional protection ensures peace of mind.
