Email, Email Security, Collaboration, Email Threat Scanner

Email is the most prominent form of communication for businesses today. However, it is also the primary way that malware and other cyber threats infiltrate a network to gain financial, business, or other sensitive information. To determine what email security would be best for your company, Centrality can run a free email threat scanner. Don’t guess how many of these dormant threats are in your inboxes. Find out for sure.


Understanding the Threat

According to FBI, business email compromise (BEC) scams were responsible for $12.5 billion in reported losses since 2013. These highly personalized attacks happen in a much smaller volume than traditional phishing. In addition, they typically do not contain malicious attachments or links. Because of this, they can be very difficult to detect using existing email security solutions.

Secure email gateways can help. However, there are thousands of threats that can easily bypass standard email filters. Zero-day threats are oftentimes not detected because scripts have not yet caught the vulnerability the threat is exploiting.  As a result, your email inboxes almost certainly contain dormant threats that could cost you time, money, and resources with just a single distracted click.
