Omdia Market Radar: Outbound Email Security
Email is a powerful instrument for sending messages anywhere, to anyone, so much so that it has become a universal tool of communication, both within and beyond the business environment.
However, with the leading cause of security breaches today down to non-cyber related issues (i.e. human error), it’s vital for organizations to instil controls to offset identified risks at all stages of email management, including:
Composition and transmission of email
Understanding the context and sensitivity of content and recipient
Encrypting sensitive data while it is being sent and while it is stored
Applying controls such as revocation or retraction to prevent or mitigate data leakage
