Cybersecurity is a growing concern in the modern digital environment. Data protection and email security are fast becoming buzzwords in the global business arena, and enterprises of all sizes are vulnerable to attack.
And while there are measures businesses can take to increase the security of their email ecosystems, it’s essential to raise the guard to an entirely new level with mail protection service. If you are on the lookout for a service provider, here are four things you need to focus for an Email Security Service:
1. Protection Against Evolving Threats
There are a lot of threats to email security of large enterprises. It’s critical that the email security service you end up choosing can protect your email infrastructure against all of these malicious attacks. Anti-spam, anti-fraud, anti-phishing, and anti-malware technologies need to be integrated into your systems and processes in order to increase your capabilities to resist daily attacks.
Related, your systems and processes must be prepared for quickly evolving to any new threat incoming or on the horizon. Some Email security solutions maintain mechanisms, related to shared threat Intelligence, to rapidly counter evolving threats, such as new scams and new forms of malware.
2. Customization and Seamless Integration
Quality email security services have to be customizable and able to integrate with existing email ecosystems seamlessly. They have to be compatible with your current email system for fast deployment and provisioning, regardless if it’s an on-premise, cloud-based or hybrid model.
G Suite and Office 365 are the most popular email server/client solutions in the market, and chances are a security service needs to be able to integrate and act as a superior layer of security, on top of the existing standard business and security features.
Email security gateways should not only bring in the Email Security and Control aspects, but also provide the business and networks sides, with advanced analytics, and thorough forensics on messages, for instance. As important, usage of such a system must be not only simplified but facilitated with the right permissions, user roles, and SMTP management.
3. Key Features
Email protection security needs to increase the safety of your email environment. But it also needs to work to increase total protection of your cyberinfrastructure, and has to include some of the most advanced key features on top of standard products:
- Encryption layer with DKIM, Sender ID and SPF
- Enhanced fraud and spoofing protection
- Data leakage protection
- Quota management and burst detection
- Attachment dynamic analysis, discovery, and management
4. Email Real-time Threat Protection
Criminals are continuously evolving their tactics and methods to bypass email security measures, so a quality email security service needs to have up-to-date information about recent threats and real-time monitoring capabilities to track them.
Threat intelligence server systems can stream the most recent anomaly examination and remediation, spam patterns, or IP and domain observation for reputation and malware detection. Systems that are immediately updated with such new information care much more efficient in dealing with new breeds of spam, malware, or phishing (zero-day threats).
