E-mail attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated. As threats continue to evolve, their capabilities allow them to bypass traditional defenses which can lead to a significant increase in risk to your business.

The key is prevention before these e-mail attacks even hit your inbox. Here we break down how to block some of the more popular e-mail threats and how to combat them:

Phishing: Phishing is when a cybercriminal impersonates a legitimate organization via e-mail as a means to access sensitive information. This is typically done with a link that will require you to fill out personal information. The most effective method for eliminating phishing attacks is using two factor authentication.

Spoofing: Similar to phishing, spoofing is when a cybercriminal forges e-mail headers and signatures so that the reader believes the e-mail is from a vendor or someone they trust. The e-mail will ask the person to take some sort of action so that the attacker can gain access to their account.

Malware: Malware is typically hidden within a document that is attached to an e-mail or it can be embedded in script downloads from an external website. Signature matching is an important tactic to detect and block most malware variants.

Zero Day Threats: An advanced type of malware that hasn’t been seen before and doesn’t match any known malware signatures. Sandboxing is a tool that will analyze suspicious files and link in an isolated test environment to make sure they are safe before they are even delivered to your inbox.
