The popularity of email as a collaboration tool shows no sign of abating. In fact, research group Radicati predicts that in 2020 the number of emails sent and received per day will exceed 306 billion. Also, with so many employees now working from home, organizations have never been so reliant on email to keep communication and productivity flowing.
However, with collaboration comes risk. Phishing, spam, viruses, business email compromise, data loss (accidental or otherwise) – email has to cope with a large number of cybersecurity risks and threats, so it’s no wonder IT teams have to think carefully about deploying the right solution to keep their organization protected.
