What is an email security / communication systems solution?
This solution should be responsible for preventing any unauthorized entity wishing to intercept electronic communications from being able to access information in an intelligible way. Efficiency, streamlining, and compliance should be key.
It typically involves a combination of technologies, policies, and best practices to detect, prevent, and respond to email-based attacks:
- Spam filters
- Anti-virus software
- Email, messaging or video encryption
- Access control
Overall, an email or digital communications security solution is an essential component of any organization’s security strategy, as email remains one of the most common and effective attack vectors used by cybercriminals to target individuals and organizations.
