Email and Web Security
What is Email Security?
Email security is a broad term that encompasses multiple techniques used to secure an email service. From an individual/end user standpoint, proactive email security measures include: Strong passwords, Password rotations, Spam filters, Desktop-based anti-virus/anti-spam applications Similarly, a service provider ensures email security by using strong password and access control mechanisms on an email server; encrypting and digitally signing email messages when in the inbox or in transit to or from a subscriber email address. It also implements firewall and software-based spam filtering applications to restrict unsolicited, untrustworthy and malicious email messages from delivery to a user’s inbox.
More than 90% of targeted attacks start with email, and these security threats are always evolving.
