We hope you enjoy reading Gartner insights on the email security space. The report’s recommendations for security and risk management professionals include:
Invest in anti-phishing technology that can accurately detect BEC and account takeover attacks.
Seek solutions for BEC protection that use AI to create a baseline for and detect communication patterns and conversation-style anomalies. For account takeover attacks, seek solutions that use computer vision when reviewing suspect URLs.
Address gaps in the advanced threat defense capabilities of incumbent secure email gateways (SEG) by either replacing them or supplementing them with complementary capabilities via API integration.
Integrate email events into a broader XDR or SIEM/SOAR strategy.
