Importance of Email Security Solutions in Defending Enterprises

Email security solutions play a critical role in protecting enterprises from the latest malware.  According to data from Verizon's 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), malicious email attachments and emails with malicious URLs (called Email Link in the image below) are among the top threat vectors by which enterprise security breaches occur.  
 
Malicious URLs are #1 Means By Which Enterprises Were Breached in 2019 per 2020 DBIR
With that in mind, ICSA Labs developed and launched an Advanced Threat Defense - Email  (ATD-Email) Certification Testing program to test email security solutions.  The testing program is aimed at determining how well these email security solutions detect new and little-known malicious threats in email. Check out the Testing Program's characteristics as well as the Testing Criteria to see if your email security solution has what it takes to properly protect against todays' email threats.
