Cisco: Top Three Considerations When Securing Office 365 Email 

Moving to the cloud is a no brainer. It’s far more cost effective than maintaining internal systems. No wonder companies have been transitioning to cloud platforms, like Microsoft Office 365, over the last few years. It’s great for the bottom line. Companies with fewer than 1,000 users can expect to save up to 24% on average according to Gartner. Plus, employees can be more productive with all the collaboration tools in Office 365. But as more and more companies have made the transition, the Office 365 platform has become an incredibly attractive attack surface.

According to Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, attackers used email to communicate with their target in 95 percent of breaches. The Cisco 2017 Midyear Cybersecurity Report also found that attackers turn to email as the primary vector for spreading ransomware and other malware. With ransomware and business email compromise on the rise, Office 365 customers should consider adding advanced email security capabilities to protect their cloud mailboxes.

Stop More Threats with Better Threat Intelligence

Threat intelligence is the critical information that informs security solutions. For email security, this includes details like sender reputation, file signatures of known malware, and more. Advanced email security capabilities should leverage robust threat intelligence to detect and block threats before they launch.

Cisco Talos, the largest threat detection network in the world, is the Cisco Email Security foundation. For starters, Talos analyzes 600 billion emails per day. This number is more than what other competitors see in an entire month! Why is this important? Because more data means a broader view of the threat landscape. The 600 billion emails per day is also only a fraction of what Talos sees because it correlates data from the best intelligence feeds available and from all points in the attack kill chain. The breadth and depth of this data means Talos stops more threats before they reach our customers. Talos also shares the latest threat insight via updates to our customers’ email security solutions every three to five minutes.
