It’s 2018 and with all the email breaches in the news should I still have to ask why are you not securing your email? Well yes, I do. In 2017 60% of all businesses still used POP3 or IMAP.
Now I know in the past Exchange Email was expensive to set up, host and manage for a small business but things have changed, thanks to the cloud. Microsoft Office 365 email helps protect your business with advanced capabilities like anti-malware and anti-spam filtering to protect your mailboxes. Also out of the box are data loss prevention capabilities preventing your users from mistakenly sending sensitive information to unauthorized people.
Already in the Microsoft Azure Cloud users can rely on globally redundant servers and premier disaster recovery capabilities. A team of security experts monitoring your email around the clock safeguard your data. Not to mention a guaranteed 99.9% uptime, financially-backed service level agreement, you can count on your email always being up and running. All this for around $10 per month and you would have to be nuts not to choose this over traditional POP3 email.
So how can you make sure your email is secure?
- Start with a strong password.
- Choose a strong security question.
- Make sure you’re using Secure Socket Layers (SSL)-enabled email client (O365).
- Encrypt your email messages.
Charges are ahead for Google and security
Finding ways to secure your email is just one of the new changes in store for users in 2019.
