91 % of all cybersecurity breaches start with an email. Most companies leverage advanced content inspection tools and costly employee training programs. However, 59 % of all companies are victims of a cyberattack each year. Content inspection fails to detect every threat. Even AI-powered defense tools cannot keep up with AI-powered attacks, which evolve more quickly and are employed at scale.
Employee training loses effectiveness over time, especially if not supported by user-friendly technology that guides business users to make the right decisions. Alternative email providers are expensive and disrupt workflows and integrations with other tools. They also force one to outsource security and trust a third party.
A multi-layered approach adopting Zero Trust on top of the existing security provides a very effective solution, where communication partners establish trust directly, and the effects of a breach are minimal. However, it has been historically complex to implement, complicated to use, and unlikely to support enterprise and compliance requirements.
The future of Zero Trust email security lies in adopting tools that are robust, reliable, and user-friendly. Solutions that can seamlessly integrate with existing business workflows, require minimal overhead, and uphold the principles of Zero Trust. By adopting a simple and effective multi-layered approach, businesses can keep up with the increasing threat level while keeping costs low and users happy.
