Using the S/MIME protocol to protect enterprises from phishing attacks, Business Email Compromise, & data loss
Virtual teams made up of internal colleagues, outside partners, and even potential clients find a need to collaborate effectively and securely, requiring cost-effective ways to authenticate the integrity of messages they receive but also the need to maintain confidentiality. Now more than ever, email is one of the biggest concerns for CISOs and heads of security with solutions needed to cover the encryption of messages and data either at rest or during transmission to other parties.
Within this white paper we will be highlighting the use of S/MIME Certificates as a solution, providing a way to maintain confidentiality, as well as proving the integrity and origin of emails and their authors.
In this white paper you'll learn:
- The risks of using email, including email spoofing, phishing, and data loss or leaks
- The benefits of using S/MIME to mitigate those risks
- What S/MIME is and its security benefits
- Deployment considerations and options, including ease of use for end users, native compatibility with email clients, ability to leverage Active Directory and Group Policy, and using S/MIME for both mobile and desktop
