Email security is a critical risk for most businesses. Today, all types of business communication is done via email, even the exchange of critical and sensitive information about a company or its customers, which can be very dangerous if not accompanied by the proper email security.
In fact, over 90 percent of all successful attacks on enterprise networks are a result of phishing attacks, targeting an organization’s users via email, which may cause serious harm to the company and the consequences can be severe. To combat this, Nuspire created a solution called nuMail to provide customers with state-of-the-science managed enterprise email security and email content inspection, where unlimited configuration and change management support is provided. Depending on your organization, there is a range of security technologies you can utilize to protect your business from known or unknown threats. Some critical components that you should utilize in your email security technology include the following:Content InspectionThis technology looks for key information that you don’t want leaving your network, including social security numbers, bank numbers, health care information and more, then quarantines or encrypts these messages to ensure this sensitive information doesn’t leave the network. Email EncryptionTo ensure secure message delivery, encryption protection is required. This prevents unauthorized users on the network to receive and read your email message.
It disguises and protects your message from being read by anyone other than the intended recipient(s). If a hacker or anyone other than the intended recipient intercepts the email, it is now unreadable to them.At Nuspire, we use our identity-based encryption to allow customers to securely send sensitive information from one point to another. Our customers can specify when messages should be encrypted, or they can utilize the DLP scanning with a set of rules that will automatically encrypt certain email messages. SandboxingSandboxing is used to execute untested or untrusted programs or code from untrusted third-parties, suppliers, users, or websites, without risking harm to your network operating system. This allows your own dedicated environment to analyze, understand, and act on threats to your organization that haven’t been detected by conventional security measures. With sandboxing technologies in place, targeted, sophisticated malware can be detected and blocked when? detonated in your sandbox. At Nuspire, our advanced sandboxing technology is at the heart of nuMail.
It allows us to run attachments, hyperlinks, and other content through behavior analytics to look for what might happen before it hits the network. Response and RemediationNow you have the proper technology in place, but you also need the resources to monitor, detect, and respond to the potential hacks—one of the most crucial parts of keeping your email secure. It’s important that your business has the time and resources to monitor, detect, and respond to potential hacks in real time. Some companies don’t have the resources to dedicate a full-time individual to this job, however, there are third party vendors to invest in that can effectively and efficiently monitor your network, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
