Email Protection Minute: Protect Email From Attack In Office 365

Discover how AppRiver’s Advanced Security Audit is the perfect gift to give your customers this holiday season.

Office 365 is the most widely used cloud service in the United States, according to Gartner. However, without any additional security, customers are more vulnerable than ever to spear phishing and ransomware attacks – especially during the holiday season.

“We’re going to see more malicious banner ads and, of course, more email-based attacks,” says Troy Gill, manager of security research at AppRiver. “Because everyone is ordering packages to be delivered, attackers will typically craft emails posing as FedEx or UPS shipping confirmations and distribute malware that way.”

These cyber grinches are opening the door for solution providers to give the gift of an all-encompassing security solution. “The best way to do that is adding additional security layers instead of just relying on a single solution,” says Gill.

AppRiver has those solutions you can offer customers.

In addition to built-in training for AppRiver’s email security platform and a new partner program with high-touch support, AppRiver also has an Advanced Security Audit tool. It checks customers’ Office 365 accounts for any vulnerabilities and breaks down the data in a way that’s easy to explain to customers.

“It’s going to expose vulnerabilities within an Office 365 tenant, which is going to allow you to find things like forwarding rules or password policies that may not be as secure as you’d want them to be,” says Justin Saxton, director of sales engineering at AppRiver. “You’ll be able to have a conversation with your customer, go through and audit these things and also pitch the other security solutions that you may have available for them.”

And, AppRiver makes it even easier to talk to your customers with its ready-to-launch campaign. Partners get co-branded marketing materials to help them communicate through email and social media – creating stickier customer relationships that foster recurring revenue.
