Email Security Challenges Companies Face Today

Email is essential to business communication making it a prime target for cybercriminals. Email-based attacks are on the rise, and businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to the latest email security threats. Here are some of the email security challenges companies face today.

Phishing Scams

Phishing is a type of email attack that tries to trick users into clicking on malicious links or attachments. This can lead to data breaches, malware infections, and other serious consequences.

Spoofed Email

Spoofing is when an attacker pretends to be someone else in order to gain access to sensitive information. This can be done by spoofing an email address or creating a fake website that looks real.


Malicious attachments and links are a common way for attackers to distribute malware. This type of email attack can be difficult to detect, as the email may look like it’s from a legitimate sender and have a common attachment type such as PDF, DOCX, XLSX, etc.

Email Impersonation

This is a targeted spear phishing attack that aims to trick a specific individual or organization into revealing sensitive information. The attacker may use personal information to make the email seem more credible.

Anomalous Logins

Anomalous logins, for example, would be if an employee who usually logs in from California, suddenly attempted to login from France a few hours later. This may be a sign of suspicious activity, such as an attempted cyber attack or unauthorized access to an account.

Malicious Deletion

Malicious data deletion is the intentional destruction or removal of data from an environment by an unauthorized individual or entity. This type of attack can have serious consequences, such as disrupting business operations, compromising the confidentiality of sensitive information, and causing financial loss. Even if your email and data is hosted in the cloud.
