Email protection secures employee internal communication and reduces the risk of data leaks, stolen financial or personal information, and it secures your whole supply chain. In recent years, email phishing and ransomware attacks have become more frequent, with 3.4 billion phishing emails being sent daily. This is expected to increase even more in the next few years.
What does Email Protection do?
Email protection services protect against phishing, ransomware, spam, malware, and brand impersonation. Its multilayered security approach involves educating the workforce through employee Security Awareness Testing and Training, and email protection via technology solutions such as DMARC. Going further, advanced machine learning and targeted scans can be adopted to detected potential threats sooner, prevent compromised assets from becoming further threats to the whole network and automatically take down active attacks to quickly minimise their damage.
Why do you need Email Protection?
Email communication is used daily within organisations in the global workplace. It is frequently used by cyber criminals to carry out cyber-attacks and time and again has been found to be the initial entry point for an attack. A successful attack via email has the capacity to debilitate an entire company.
An email protection service will protect your:
- supply chain
- financial assets
- brand reputation
- sensitive network data
- company information
Organisations need a comprehensive email protection solution that offers encryption, targeted threat protection, data leak prevention, and enforced email security controls. This is essential to maintain a healthy cyber security portfolio.
Email is the most attacked threat surface. Phishing and spoofing are usually the entry point of today’s email-initiated breaches.
It’s tempting to rely on an email malware filtering tool for all your email protection needs. But it’s not enough. Standalone malware filtering won’t defend against today’s attacks.
Phishing and spoofing attacks use social engineering to persuade your colleagues to give away confidential information or visit a malicious website. The email won’t always contain malware and so it can’t be picked up by malware filtering.
Every week there’s a new announcement of the latest ransomware attack where the breach was made via email. These attacks are too common and too damaging for you to rely on simple malware filtering tools alone.
You need a layered approach to email protection
Only by layering tools and training will you protect your organisation from email-initiated threats.
Our managed email protection solution perfectly complements your existing email filtering tool.
It addresses the two email attack methods that malware filtering misses: phishing and spoofing.

Email Phishing and Spoofing Attacks
Email phishing attacks aim to trick people into giving away sensitive data or other actions that will benefit the cyber-criminal. These emails are sent to thousands of recipients and cause harm to the companies and individuals who unwittingly do as the criminal’s tell them.
Your email malware tool only works on company emails. It doesn’t scan the personal email platforms used by your staff. This means any staff checking their personal email on a work computer will be completely unprotected. As much as we might like staff not to do this, we know they do and so we know we need to deal with it.
Your ‘human firewall’ will be either your strongest or weakest defence against phishing attacks. That’s why you need to train your colleagues to be savvy emailers and help them to help you keep the company safe.
Managed Email Protection from Red Helix supports you by regularly testing your workforce’s cyber awareness, identifying knowledge gaps, and giving the online training needed to improve cyber vigilance and improve your human firewall.
Email spoofing attacks target individuals by credibly posing as someone they trust, like a client, colleague, or supplier. They ask them to take action that they might not question or confirm by other means. This can have devastating consequences and will easily bypass your email malware tool.
Email security and convenience
Addressing email security needs used to be quick easy with an annual subscription to your email malware filtering tool. But the threat landscape has moved on and so should you.
We know that finding and running tools for today’s layered email protection needs takes time and resource. Our Managed Security Team takes away this pain and provides you with a robust email security strategy that’s convenient, whilst adapting to the ever-changing email threat landscape.
To identify where your email may lack sufficient security measures, we are offering a free Digital Exposure and Risk Review, which are our high-level assessments of your publicly available digital assets, highlighting gaps in your security that are visible to all.
Contact us today to discuss and we will be delighted to explain how we can secure your emails to help you protect your colleagues and company.
