Email remains the center of modern cyberattacks. It is the primary communication method for business and is therefore a prime attack vector used as a gateway into complete takeover of an organization’s networks.

The threat landscape continues to change rapidly. Attackers target email but also breach organizational defenses via attack vectors such as web and other collaboration applications. The enterprise shift to remote work has introduced new vulnerabilities for users and organizations. Threat actors have taken advantage with new, more sophisticated cyberattacks particularly targeting email. With the evolution of remote and hybrid work environments, legacy secure email gateway security solutions are not equipped to manage the growing number of devices connected to cloud-based email services.

Sophisticated cyberattacks are utilizing machine learning and artificial intelligence to quickly compromise cloud-based environments to gain access to organizations’ systems and exfiltrate data. Ransomware attacks are increasing as hackers capitalize on multiple devices connected to business networks and remote working environments lacking proper security management methods.

The email security market is saturated, mature, highly competitive, and crowded. Vendors are developing functions and features to counter new threats and adapt to the changing threat landscape, and must adapt protection technologies to help organizations transitioning from on-premises to cloud-based email solutions. The publisher expects customers to consolidate multiple security solutions taking advantage of integration and the evolution of holistic security frameworks.
