Traditional email-security defenses aren’t enough anymore. In today’s rapidly evolving threat environment, to stop email-borne threats, you must effectively defend against phishing and other potentially-devastating social-engineering attacks. These sophisticated threats are often able to bypass defenses using back-door techniques, including email spoofing, spear phishing and personal email fraud to penetrate network defenses and wreak havoc. Here’s a total email-protection strategy that can help radically reduce an organization’s susceptibility to attacks.

When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while. As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you. That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example. These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future. Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer. The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.

Email. You use it constantly. And it’s the number-one application to keep your organization functioning, lines of communication flowing, and productivity seamless. Organizations need email to stay up-and running all the time. After all, it’s supposed to just work, right? This is where trouble often sets in. Cybercriminals use email constantly, too. It’s the number-one vector used to initiate attacks like malware delivery (think ransomware), impersonations and phishing attacks. In fact, almost 90% of organizations* have seen the volume of phishing attacks either rise or stay the same over the past 12 months. Internal threats have also been on the rise: Most organizations have encountered internal threats driven by careless employees (88%), compromised accounts (80%) or malicious insiders (70%) over the last year.

Two-thirds of all internally generated email sent is from employees communicating within an organization*.

Any digital device or application can be a vector for a cyberattack, but email is an especially acute problem for many organizations. As individuals or members of organizations, most people rely on email to communicate with colleagues, whether in the next cubicle or across the globe. For many in the business world, 24/7 access to email is routine, and often required. Instant, ubiquitous and inexpensive communication gives us quick access to others in our business and personal lives, but gives criminals easy and direct access to us as well.

With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets. This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.

Over the past several years data loss and data leaks have been a regular part of headline news. From high-profile hacks of retailers such as Target and Home Depot to inadvertent email data leaks from large multi-national banks to targeted leaks of sensitive government documents, it is becoming clear throughout the private and public sector that data security or the lack thereof is an existential threat to business operations. While there are many vendors focused on data encryption, data masking is actually the single most effective mechanism for an IT organization to dramatically reduce or even eliminate the risk of data loss.
