West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre Logo

In today’s world where more and more people work remotely, keeping your email security up-to-date has become more important than ever before. The increased demand for communication flow between all team members via email has also led to an increase in known and emerging threats. At brokenStones, we provide a reliable Email Protection Software that ensures that your business remains protected against all email security risks.

What is email security and why is it important?

Your email security is composed of the methods you use to protect the information shared in your emails, as well as your email account data. Ensuring reliable email protection requires multiple levels of protection, including different software, techniques and procedures.

Emails are vulnerable to a series of cyberattacks, which if successful, could cause major damage to your network and serious sensitive data breach protection issues, as well as serious financial and information losses. This is why it is of utmost importance to keep your business protected from email cyberattacks. The brokenStones email protection software can do just that!

Email Security Threats

There are many types of email attacks that you could be a target of. From regular viruses, spam and phishing, internal email risks, file sharing risk to more advanced attacks, there’s no way of knowing what the next threat is going to be. Here are some of the common email attacks we can protect your from:

Phishing

Phishing is a technique used to trick users into disclosing sensitive data by impersonating a legitimate user. For example, the email may seem to be sent by your boss or maybe by an institution, such as the HMRC or your bank. If the recipient believes the email is genuine they could give out their personal data and even authorise payments.

Spoofing

In the context of email security, spoofing is a method employed in email impersonation attacks. It tricks the email recipient to think that an email is coming from a trusted source, where it actually is coming from an unknown sender. Spoofing techniques are often used in phishing attacks; however, they can be used to introduce other email security threats, such as malware.

Malware

Malware refers to all types of malicious software, including spyware, viruses, and ransomware. An email attack can be used to download malware code to your network. This can grant access to your network or cause serious damage to the system. 

Internal email threats

There are many ways your system can be attacked using internal user accounts – from access gained via a compromised email account to human error and malicious intent. To prevent this, our email security software constantly monitors internal emails to identify and prevent threats.
