Unfortunately, however, some nefarious individuals have capitalized on the rising adoption of email by using it as a channel to execute cyber attacks. A hacker, for example, may send an email containing to malware disguised as a legitimate app or software to an unsuspecting victim. The victim thinks the file attachment is legitimate, so he or she downloads it. Once downloaded, the malware infects the victim's computer or network, resulting in catastrophic damage.
The good news is that there are ways to protect against email-related cyber attacks, including the use of a secure email gateway. What is a secure email gateway exactly?
