Why Email Security Is More Important Now More Than Ever
Emails are one of the most popular modes of communication. However, organizations have realized that emails are not secure — they carry unprotected information in the body and attachments and can be accessed by anyone.
Studies have shown that 93% of the time, emails are the root cause of data breaches in an organization. The risk of data breaches has escalated lately, with a 75% boost in the global email traffic due to the work-from-home situation.
Many organizations have recognized this upcoming threat and have tried to implement various solutions such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to mitigate the email security risk. However, a significant number of leaders felt that the DLP tools were either unable to detect the threat or were difficult to use. Data encryption is another method of protecting the data sent via emails. However, the adoption of email encryption is a relatively slow process as most organizations are not sure how to implement it. This has brought the email security situation to a standstill.
