Installing Email Protection
Installing email protection is a vital step for all companies to complete if they wish to be in a position where they are completely protected from possible cyberattacks and the theft of data.
Any cybersecurity expert will tell you that there are a range of ways that spam can infiltrate the servers of yours. Along with email attacks there is also the possibility that a virus might land on the network via an infected device or external drive that a worker is actually unaware includes spam. These units are generally utilized outside of work and might have been infected after being used on an unsecure network. These viruses need to be identified and addressed quickly before they’re inadvertently sent to essential business associates.
There’s also the risk that a person in your group might hand over their email login information to a malicious actor, leading to a spammer taking control of their account. When this happens the chances that a company Email Compromise (BEC) episode is actually initiated via that e-mail account are really high. The likelihood is even higher that they are going to aim the strike on one of your reliable company associates, one thing that would do untold damage to your business reputation.
It’s highly likely that your domain has been whitelisted by the email protection services used by your trusted business contacts. Due to this, one they take management of a company email address, the spammer will have the ability to avoid all of the security measures configured. Worse again, if the email is noticed by an SUBRL as being malicious and marked as spam there’s a high chance that your domain of yours will likely then be added to a worldwide spam blacklist and blocked by RBL filter. This will lead to important business emails not reaching their intended recipients.
The best step for your group to employ in order to stop attacks like this is install email protection with a high spam detection rate thanks to the inclusion of greylisting – a process that involves sending all received emails back again to the sender, asking for it to be delivered a second time. Genuine senders will usually resend the email once more in just a few seconds while spammers, because of their overloaded demanding email servers, don’t see the request at all..
By using this process of denying the receipt of incoming emails, and carrying out ongoing reviews on returned mails, the risk of spam email messages bypassing your security measures are typically 67% lower, on average. However, if this the spam email does make it past the greylisting process then additional cybersecurity measures come into action and this email will be checked to make sure that it is real and does not include anything malicious.
The checking procedures include Real Time Blacklist checks as well as SURBL database checks to recognize some IP addresses known to be connected with cyberattacks.
