Email Security

Email Security

Email Security as a Service gives end users continuous protection from cyberattacks using email exploits. This managed service can include spam, virus, malware, and phishing detection; URL analysis and blacklisting; email attachment analysis; email encryption; and safe large file transfer. Managed service providers may also offer geo-blocking (i.e., stopping emails from countries where the end user doesn’t do business).

Why it Matters to Your Customers

The number of phishing attacks continue to increase. Kapersky Lab, for example, saw a 59 percent increase in phishing in 2017. In addition, phishing attacks are increasingly more sophisticated. Phishing emails are constructed to look legitimate, and they use a variety of techniques to fool a user into clicking a link, opening an attachment, or giving up personal information or passwords.

And those tactics work. Even the most vigilant employee could fall prey to an expertly engineered attack — or simply make a mistake. Research for IRONSCALES 2018 Email Security Report found that between 90 percent and 95 percent of all cyberattacks worldwide originate with phishing.

In light of the high cost of recovering from a data breach, including IT repairs and restoration, loss of productivity, fines, and damage to a business’ reputation, businesses want to prevent cyberattacks — including those initiated through email. Many businesses, however, don’t have the in-house resources to manage email security solutions.

Why Email Security is an Opportunity

By offering Email Security as a Service, you can defend your customers from phishing and other email-based attacks while relieving in-house IT staff from the burden of managing email security solutions. In addition, by working with a leading vendor in email security, MSPs can offer more robust email security than a business could probably afford on its own, including features such as behavior and heuristic threat detection, outbound filtering to prevent data leakage, and tamper-proof archiving.

Email Security as a Service can be a valuable part of a comprehensive Security as a Service offering, which may include employee awareness training, managed antivirus, and firewall management or web application firewall. By meeting all of your clients’ security needs, you can create stickier, long-lasting business relationships with your clients.
