Sending quotes and invoices, scheduling appointments, exchanging ideas with colleagues: emails are the number one communication tool in the business world. In fact, each employee receives an average of up to 42 emails per day, a significant increase compared to the 26 emails in 2020.
But this essential tool has an Achilles’ heel: emails are transmitted in plain text by default, leaving the door wide open to potential security risks. Unauthorized third parties can easily read the content of the email.
In this context, email phishing is particularly alarming. In the SOES report 2021, for example, forty percent of the companies surveyed stated that their email security was insufficient. Alarmingly, 13 percent of these companies did not even have an email security system to ward off various types of email phishing. This is despite the fact that a single targeted attack can cost a medium-sized company several hundred thousand euros.
While many believe that large companies are the main target of cybercriminals, it is often the small and medium-sized companies that are targeted. This is because email security is often overlooked in these organizations.
It is all the more important to emphasize the importance of email security to your customers. This works on several levels. First, the transmission of the email itself must be encrypted. At the same time, the risk must be reduced that the email will be phished on the server or in the recipient’s inbox. Therefore, the content of the email must also be encrypted.
This is where Secudos‘ file transfer solution Qiata comes into play. It helps companies securely and traceably exchange files of any kind. The main features of Qiata are:
