An Email Security Policy Can Be Enforced On The Cloud
Cloud-based email security is flexible, allowing people to set robust rules that govern how their email works. The system administrator sets an email security policy one time and then enforcement is handled automatically. If you ever need to update your rule-set, you can do easily by logging in and making the appropriate changes. For instance, you can always filter email based on subject lines, subject matter, attachment types, or nearly any criteria you can think of. If you find out you set something too tightly, you can always loosen up your rules and get back to business. The choice is yours and you have the power to create an email system that is perfect for you.
At MostHost, we offer MXSweep Email Security because it’s incredibly easy to operate, even for non-technical people. Sure, email security might be a fun subject for some people, but for the average business person it’s something that needs to be done but that no one wants to spend a lot of time learning. For someone like this, the default settings are usually enough to cause an instant reduction in spam emails. There’s no steep learning curve, just a basic set of default rules and most organizations see a massive drop in the type of spams and phishing attempts they get.
Your Email Security Policy Will Help You Reduce Or Eliminate Email Spam
Reducing spam based on your email security policies is a great idea. It helps eliminate a huge threat to corporate security, and even improves efficiency. Company workers are better served working on something important, rather than spending all day deleting unwanted emails. These workers time will be freed up so they can work on something much more profitable. Phishing attempts can have a very dramatic negative impact on a company. Your security policies can help you totally eliminate phishing attempts forever. Once a worker falls for a phishing attempt, they may just cough up details that could really hurt the company. Once a breach occurs, you end up spending time and money to clean it up. It’s a much better bet to take precautionary steps up front to avoid this happening.
Phishing works because the tactic preys on basic human emotions to get people to perform actions they normally wouldn’t. Depending on how large your organization is and how well trained your employees are, the number of people who fall prey to these attacks will vary. Still, there’s always someone who will ‘click here‘ and land on a phishing page and give up details unless the proper procedures are in place. Scammers know this and they know exactly what buttons to push in order to get people to fall for their scams. They almost always use popular and trending events or common company names to try and lure people into forgetting their common sense.
Eliminate Phishing Before It Causes Real Damage
You can’t change human nature and you won’t be able to get people to avoid clicking on something that pushes the right buttons. The only way to stop phishing is with an email security policy that quarantines these types of messages before they ever hit your inbox. Spammers forge headers and perform a lot of tricks to make their email look real. However, premium email security solutions can detect their tricks and rightly identify the messages as spam and quarantine them before they do any real danger.
In summary, setting an email security policy is a good thing. Implementing cloud email security to enforce this policy automatically is even better. These tactics can help you eliminate the threats posed by email scams and spams before they take a bite out of your business. Click here to request a quote on MostHost MXSweep Premium Email Security.
