As more companies turn to the cloud to improve, simplify, and consolidate their productivity tools — with Microsoft 365 leading the charge — those platforms’ usage, users, and data rise dramatically, making them a far more valuable target for hackers.
Email is the predominant entry point for these types of attacks. As a result, managed email security offerings have become an indispensable security layer for enterprises large and small, providing the multi-faceted protection that these mission-critical resources require.
Before you are sold additional products that won’t cure the problem, ask them these questions.
How Do You Prevent Impersonation Email Attacks?
JENLOR uses a multi-layered approach to email security to avoid impersonation attacks and other types of phishing and cybercrime. This multi-layered approach includes:
- Anti-impersonation software that scans email for indicators of malware-free, social engineering-based impersonation assaults, which are the most frequent. Header abnormalities, domain resemblance, sender spoofing, and suspicious language in email content are examples of these.
- Email security software that checks and filters every link and attachment in every email and prevents users from visiting potentially harmful URLs or opening attachments.
- DNS authentication services identify valid and potentially fraudulent emails using the DKIM, SPF, and DMARC protocols.
- Anti-malware and anti-spam security can prevent some types of assaults from reaching users’ inboxes.
How Would Your Company Respond to a Compromised Account?
Threat intelligence data indicates that hackers’ attacks on companies are growing more complicated; dangers like corporate email compromise or phishing are becoming more difficult for staff to detect and can have even higher consequences for firms. These sorts of compromises affect countless businesses every single day. In the event that your organization’s approach to email security comes up short, what steps would your team take to respond to the situation? Do you have the skills in house to prevent these attacks, and – if needed – do you have the skills and resources to respond to a compromise? Do you have a team on speed-dial to assist?
All of these questions should be answered with genuine, thorough and thoughtful replies by whoever is responsible for email security and administration in your environment. If they are unable to do so, it may be time to take a closer look at who is addressing these concerns for your organization.
