With over 90% of attacks on organizations originating in a malicious email, email security is a necessity for every organization.
The transition to the Work-From-Home era has brought a surge in the number of attacks coming from emails, and their success rate. Accordingly, organization must ensure they choose the optimal email security solution for their needs.
Email scams have been on the rise in the past years, presenting ever-growing attack variety and sophistication. The success rate of these attacks is high, and the amount of effort required is relatively low compared to other types of attacks that rely on vulnerabilities in infrastructure or network.
This makes email attacks extremely lucrative for cyber criminals, which in turn constantly create increasingly sophisticated campaigns that are designed to bypass traditional security solutions, and exploit human nature.
Check Point Research have been observing an enormous rise in email attacks since the beginning of 2020, from multi-staged spear phishing attacks to Microsoft impersonation campaigns.

A good malware solution should provide organizations with the highest block rate possible, combined with little to zero impact on productivity. In order to maintain productivity without compromising security, the solution must be able to clean any file of active content instantly, so it can deliver it within seconds to the end-user. Block rate is crucial since once malware reaches the end-user’s machine, it’s too late.
Hijacking users’ accounts is achieved by gaining access to an account’s credentials through a phishing attack, a breach to a third-party site, or even on the dark web. A hijacked account presents a huge risk to organizations as the hacker now has complete access to the organization’s database, contacts, customer information, and other sensitive data. With account takeover, hackers also impersonate the account owner and send emails on their behalf, moving internally within your organization. Accordingly, your security solution must be able to prevent account takeover.
