You’ve Got Email…Security Vulnerabilities – Ping Podcast – Episode 44

Episode 44: You’ve Got Email…Security Vulnerabilities

Most cyber threats enter your network via email. So naturally, anytime new email security vulnerabilities emerge, it’s big news. Security researcher, engineer, & tech columnist Ax Sharma joins us to discuss a recently discovered method for bad actors to manipulate HTML emails. He tells us how with just some simple code, the “external sender” warning from many organizations can either disappear, or change. We talk about why email security vulnerabilities like this put an even greater onus on the user, and how to combat the issue. On top of that, Ax provides greater detail on the recent Facebook story, involving the data leak of more than 500 million users. Hear how it went down, and what could happen next.

In headlines, it’s a mix of ransomware and SolarWinds. First, we talk about a ransomware attack on the DC Metro Police Department. And then, we hear a new update that Russia may not be done with its SolarWinds breach victims. And finally, we discuss the state of ransomware today, its cost and why paying rarely solves everything.

Comfortable as a Cloud with Cloud App Security

Whether for email, documents, storage, or something else, your business most likely needs (or will need) cloud applications to function on a daily basis. That means you need a reliable way to keep the apps, your users, and your business secure. Enter SonicWall Cloud App Security. SonicWall Cloud App Security delivers industry leading next-gen security for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, including Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, Dropbox, Salesforce, and more.

Embrace the Cloud Without Fear

It may be more comfortable to have all your software and data within your organization, but the cost of housing, maintaining, and securing the applications and storage on your own can be astronomical. The solution is SaaS, and to give yourself peace of mind, SonicWall’s Cloud App Security can make sure your business is safe in the cloud.

SonicWall Cloud App Security provides visibility, data security, advanced threat protection, and compliance. It stops targeted phishing, impersonation, and account takeover attacks. By analyzing real-time and historical events, it can identify breaches and security gaps – that means its ready for zero-day threats and ransomware. All of this protection comes with a second-to-none user experience as well.

Secure Email and File Sharing

Use G Suite or Office 365 for emails or document-sharing/storage? SonicWall Cloud App Security provides powerful anti-phishing, attachment sandboxing, and advanced URL protection. For inbound, outbound, and internal messages, you can count on each email being scanned for malware. If a malicious email does somehow get through, you can even turn back time and retract it from your users’ inboxes post-delivery. And when it comes to file-storage and sharing through Google Drive or OneDrive, Cloud App Security also prevents confidential file uploads and unauthorized file sharing.

It does all this with a low total cost of ownership, minimal overhead for deployment and management, and a user-friendly experience. See more about how your SaaS apps are protected:
