7 Ways How Seclore’s Email Protector Provides Best-in-Class Email Security

Emails are the heart of the communication of any organization. An average employee sends 40 emails per day for business purposes. 70% of the emails sent contains sensitive information. With more and more businesses adopting cloud-based email systems like Microsoft 365 for business communication, maintaining email security standards remains a challenge.

Why should the security and risk leaders worry?

To mitigate this risk of a data breach via email, IT leaders have deployed static email DLP solutions. However, 42% of IT leader respondents have reported that the DLP tools cannot detect even half of all incidents. This proves that their effectiveness is limited.

The other reason is that the solutions built for on-premises email solutions are no longer enough as the attacks have become much more sophisticated, requiring native cloud-based email security solutions.

Here’s what Gartner has to say:

What do organizations need to do?

Organizations need a more holistic approach to data-centric security to ensure that the emails are protected within the cloud and beyond the organization’s perimeter. Hence, in addition to email encryption and DLP tools, they need to make sure that the security of the email travels along with it, no matter where the email is accessed from.

Here’s what Gartner has to say:

“As organizations continue to migrate to cloud email, the need to re-evaluate email security is even greater.”

Attackers constantly find newer ways to access your organization’s sensitive information across emails and collaboration tools, such as Microsoft Teams, Sharepoint, and OneDrive.
