Why It’s Time to Rethink Email Security

More often than not, we are reading headlines about high-profile email hacks. The recent Pentagon breach, for example, shows the number of emails most workers receive daily, increases the chances that phishing and other attack methods will succeed.

The good news? There is no shortage of proven technologies and practices for securing emails and, in turn, all databases, networks, and accounts linked to it. These technologies and practices are applicable and effective in nearly every vertical, and in many cases, are must-haves to ensure compliance with laws such as HIPAA and SEC regulations. By minimizing the chances that email and other systems will be breached, a mobile device management (MDM) platform is a way to save organizations a significant amount of money and aggravation – and further surge an MDM platform’s ROI when used to enable compliance.

Email’s ubiquity allows hackers to cast a wide net into a lake of private information, and without security, privacy cannot exist. By securing email accounts, organizations can provide the privacy that they and their employees want – which hackers hate.
