As cyber threats evolve, we face growing email security challenges. Hackers and cyber criminals relentlessly continue to attack businesses as users continue to fall for email scams. That’s why we must continue to be aware of the best practices for securing our email.
Threat actors are continuing their assault on businesses, individuals, and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) this year, and email is still the top vector. As your clients turn to you for secure services, you need to make sure you have the right email security solution in place to protect your customers.

I know it sounds like a cliché, but listening to customers and providing an affordable, reliable product backed by great customer support have been the ingredients to our success.

Jean Patrice Delia was an engineer at GE when he decided to steal company data and use trade secrets, pricing information, marketing data, and other documents and funnel them to his business partner to compete against GE. After an FBI investigation, Delia was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution. His business partner, Miguel Sernas, spent nearly a year in jail and was also ordered to pay $1.4 million.
The pandemic has ushered in a paradigm shift in how businesses communicate with their customers. As organizations in healthcare, finance, and other highly regulated industries rely more heavily on email communication, their employees continue to send sensitive data such as medical and financial information through email. This makes email privacy more important than ever, and there are several ways to implement it, but with varying levels of complexity.
