Email Security in Finance

By August 28, 2013October 21st, 2021Blog

Threats are everywhere in the financial industry. Money is a key motivator for crime of any nature, making a business built around money a primary target, financial institutions inherently dangerous and trust an unrivaled business value. It’s evident that trusting employees and co-workers carries a lot of weight, but how does an institution ensure the reliability of other, non-human tools fundamental to business?

The average inbox is both an indispensable business tool and perilous gateway into your network for cyber-attackers. With attacks leading to losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars and the FBI warning financial institutions last September that they were being highly targeted by fraudsters, it’s imperative that those in the finance industry leave no room for error when it comes to inbox security.


Traditional anti-spam solutions are based on message content and manually remove spam that has not been detected by the filter, a process that is nearly impossible to perform accurately. Financial institutions that use these anti-spam solutions are seeing them become less and less effective as attackers continue to develop even more sophisticated strategies, and costs rise as anti-spam solutions must continue to invest in new techniques to catch new threats.


Trusted Communities take an entirely new approach and are based on contacts rather than content and the good instead of the bad. By allowing you to decide who you want in your community, they nearly eliminate IT management time, deliver an unprecedented level of security and guarantee the receipt of all important emails.
