Why Cloud Email Security?
The benefits of a cloud-based security solution over an on-premise one.
The Benefits of Cloud Email Security
Cyber crime has been on the rise in the past years, with over 420 billion records being stolen in 2016 alone. The best way to fight these cyber criminals is to try and prevent and protect the company from the attacks before they can reach a single inbox.
At The Email Laundry, our security research team monitor and analyze all our customer’s traffic in real-time, allowing us to identify anomalies that indicate cyber criminal behavior. These analyses, or cyber threat intelligence feeds, gain real-time insights from the traffic of thousands of companies across the globe, while an on-premise option would only have real-time data from your own organization’s traffic; anything else would be delayed.
Cloud email security also protects companies in the following ways:
Real-Time Malware & Ransomware Detection
On-premise email security solutions only examine an email’s file contents after it is downloaded; this leave companies vulnerable. With our cloud email security, we use multi-layered filtering as well as other factors to ensure the email is safe before it reaches an employee’s inbox.
Cloud-based email security services are able to receive information in real-time, giving them instant knowledge of new phishing attacks and tactics.
With this knowledge, links to phishing URLs can be blocked and the originating IPs can be blocked, stopping phishing and CEO fraud emails from reaching your inboxes.
Normal Traffic Visualization
Cloud-based services share data from around the world, giving them a clear view on what is normal traffic and what is suspicious traffic. With on-premise security, only your traffic is monitored and analyzed, leaving you blind outside attacks.
New domains and IPs build a reputation based on their behavior. In a cloud-based email security service, this reputation is distilled from knowledge based on traffic across the entire range of organizations and applied on-the-wire. Giving cloud-based solutions, the opportunity to prevent attacks before they happen.
