Email Security

Email has become a major channel for malware distribution. Attacks that employ a variety of malicious programs, phishing attacks, and spam remain the cyber threats most frequently encountered by companies. At the same time, the volume of malicious attacks and spam has increased substantially in 2013, compared to 2012. Roughly 66% of the survey’s respondents reported that their companies were targeted in attacks involving viruses, worms, spyware, and other types of malicious programs. In 2012, that number was lower by 8% (58%).
