PRESS RELEASE — Mountain View, CA –– Intermedia, a leading cloud business applications provider, today announced that six new anti-phishing features have been integrated within its Intermedia Email Protection solution to address the escalating and widespread threat of phishing attacks.
Phishing emails attempt to coerce a user into making a financial transaction, disclosing login credentials or visiting a malware-laden website. Total phishing attacks surpassed 1.2 million in 2016 – a year-over-year increase of 65 percent. While 86 percent of office workers feel confident in their ability to detect phishing emails, the reality is that roughly one in five have fallen victim.. With Ransomware having grown into a $1 billion business, and the prevalence of sophisticated worldwide attacks such as WannaCry, businesses must prepare for things to get worse, not better.
Enterprise-grade anti-phishing protection, designed for SMBs
Contrary to popular belief, SMBs are the victims of the majority (60 percent) of targeted cyberattacks and are 5x more likely than larger organizations to fall victim to ransomware. Because SMBs are frequently limited by technical and/or financial resources to protect their data effectively, their vulnerability makes them a prime target. Intermedia Email Protection is specifically designed to help SMBs counter the latest phishing, spear-phishing, and spoofing techniques.
“While many email security providers charge extra for these types of advanced anti-phishing features, we believe these measures should not be restricted to enterprise-sized companies,” said Alex Smith, Director of Security Products at Intermedia. “Available at no additional cost to our Exchange Email users, Intermedia Email Protection’s sophisticated cybersecurity features help SMBs defend against current and future threats. Paired with Intermedia’s 24/7 J.D. Power-certified support, SMBs get the enterprise-grade protection they need to avoid disruption to their business.”
