10 Things You Need In An Email Security Service

Michael Novinson

From detecting snowshoe spam and compromised cloud accounts to providing simulated phishing attacks, sentiment analysis and oversight of east-west traffic, here are 10 things companies should look for in an email security service.

Look Holistically At Data, Information Beyond Email

Customers are looking to consolidate the number of vendors they’re working with, and an email security service that can help with phishing and impersonation attacks, exploits and security awareness training provides more value to the business, according to Kurt Mills, Mimecast’s vice president of channel sales. Employees aren’t always sure where they’re going and can bring bad things back with them, he said.

Organizations today have many people working from home who had never done so before, and their habits around web browsers between business calls can make the company susceptible to spoofing or impersonation attacks, Mills said. Given the volume of new attack vectors businesses face, Mills said organizations must have a holistic way of looking at and acting upon data and information.

Since customers are no longer sitting inside the perimeter of their corporate network, Mills said security awareness training can help users sharpen their skills around which messages are real and which ones aren’t. The training can address what the best practices are for an organization philosophically as well as put controls in place to ensure employees participate before going about their day-to-day tasks.
