Email security services for businesses
It’s such a basic, everyday part of the way you work, it’s easy to forget that email is so central to data security. And that’s the problem. Everyone in your company sends and receives hundreds of emails every week, if not every day. And all it takes is for someone to click on the wrong message to open up your whole business to attack.
In fact, phishing attacks (email attacks from hackers, which pretend to be from a trusted source) are consistently the number one source of data breaches. And as data protection regulations become ever stricter, the cost of such a breach — whether you lose your own confidential information or your customer’s data — is greater than ever. It can mean fines, disruption and damage to your company’s reputation.
But it’s not always clear how to strengthen your email security, from preventing infected, rogue emails getting through your firewall to helping your staff spot something dodgy in their inbox. And when pretty much every email provider out there claims to be ‘secure’, it’s unclear which service will give you the multi-layered protection you need.
How can Dr Logic help?
We can strengthen every aspect of your company’s email security. We do this by training your employees, helping you create an effective email security policy, and ensuring that you’re using the right security features — on both those offered by your email service and/or a third-party provider.
Most breaches are caused by human error, and falling victim to a phishing email scam, for example, can lead to a breach and potential data loss. So, it’s essential to provide your staff with email security awareness training, not least because it’s a requirement for GDPR compliance and for Cyber Essentials certification. We offer remote courses and on-site workshops that help your staff understand the traps that are out there, how to spot them, and what steps they can take to minimise the risks.
Policies & procedures
We can also help you to define your company’s email security policies and procedures — ensuring that they follow best practice recommendations and that they encourage your staff to take sensible security precautions, like practising good password hygiene (i.e. not using the same passwords for multiple email accounts).
Providers & plans
We’ll help you choose an email provider that offers best-in-class security, with built-in security features like automatic threat filtering and multi-factor authentication (so it’s harder for a hacker to get into an account, even with the password). It also includes automatic alerts warning that an email you’re about to open is risky.And since some email providers offer extra security features with their premium/enterprise plans, we can also advise you on whether it’s worth getting an upgrade.
If you’re looking for an extra layer of protection, separate from that offered by your email provider, we’ll provide you with cutting-edge technology from a leading expert. It provides:
Complete triaging of email protection incidents.
Generating reports of quarantined emails which are sent to clients, and performing actions including quarantining, and creating block-list and allow-list rules.
A SOC (Security Operations Centre)
24/7 Ransomware, account takeover, BEC, Supply Chain Attacks, and Malware protection.
Browser vulnerability checks.
Ongoing Steady State management.
24/7 Email Security Monitoring.
Anti-phishing functions for incoming and internal business emails.
Notifications of spoofing attempts to customers.
Notifications regarding anomalous behaviour e.g. massive senders, multiple password reset emails, auto forwarding to an external user.
Recommendations and additions of warning banners e.g. suspected phishing, first-time senders, potential impersonations, encrypted attachments.
Our SOC can monitor SaaS Applications for malicious content and links, DLP, policy violations, etc. which requires an additional licence. It can also make spoofing rules for specific senior-level users to actively monitor them as high-risk targets.
Some of these features may need a bit more explaining. So, if you’re looking to strengthen your email security, but need help choosing and implementing the right solution, get in touch to find out how we can help.
