9.1% of Email Delivered Shouldn’t Be

A new report from Cyren reveals that 9.1% of email delivered to users after being scanned by their company’s current email security solution was spam, phishing, or contained malware or links to malware.

The report summarizes the results from a series of email threat assessments Cyren conducted at numerous companies, in which Cyren examined 4.2 million emails that were classified as clean by the existing email security systems and delivered to user mailboxes. Solutions tested ranged from hosted email services with included security filtering to on-premises email security gateways.


Case Study: Office 365 Testing Resets Security Strategy

High Power Technical Services, with 13 offices serving the Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana region, was running on-premises Microsoft Exchange with a cloud-based email security service when they got hit by a successful Business Email Compromise attack. This led to implementation of user training and a reconsideration of their corporate email configuration.

The IT Infrastructure Manager was previously studying a migration to Office 365, a move the company went ahead and made with the intention of relying on Office 365’s native security. Their experience led them to conduct an assessment of Office 365’s security performance, and to the decision to add an additional layer of security.
