Email Security in a Zero Trust World

To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches.

Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed.

This white paper discusses how:

  • CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review
  • IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them
  • Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email
  • Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees
