If you’re the owner of a small to mid-sized business, you may be thinking that encrypted email is out of your reach. For those of you who’ve heard the term but don’t quite understand it, encrypted email is a methodology to scramble business communications so that only the intended recipients can read it.
With 1.7 billion current email exploits bouncing across the Internet, it's not surprising that email security remains at the forefront of cyber security and privacy concerns. Email exploits are constantly being directed to an organization's employees, and it only takes one recent exploit -- and a careless employee -- to compromise the organization's infrastructure. Email is the most used medium of communication today, and its ability to transfer external files into a protected network makes it incredibly dangerous. To combat this, many organizations are switching to an email security service rather than attempting to maintain security in-house.
