How to Defeat Today's Email Threats as an MSP

virus cyberattack

AI-driven phishing and business email compromise (BEC) attacks are increasing globally and have become much more sophisticated in recent years. Email threats like phishing emails have become nearly identical to regular emails and are extremely difficult to distinguish, making it harder than ever for MSPs to protect employees and companies. According to a report from Perception Point, 65% of attacks target Microsoft 365 applications such as Outlook, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams. Since most security breaches are due to human error, it is crucial for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to know how to reduce the risk of human factors with advanced email protection methods.

Smart email security services have recently gained popularity for their proactive protection against advanced cyber threats. These solutions help MSPs minimize risks at the user level and complement traditional security routines. According to a Verizon Data Breach Investigations report, 68% of breaches involved human factors, highlighting the need for advanced protective measures.

It is common for cybercriminals to use AI-driven email attacks because they require minimal resources. AI is used to quickly create malware, craft targeted phishing emails, and automate attacks. Hackers often use these complex methods to bypass traditional security solutions and spread malware via email and other channels.

To prevent these attacks, MSPs and customers must understand how cybercriminals bypass traditional security techniques. With the increase in AI-generated phishing attacks, today's security programs must include advanced threat detection, encryption, and user behavior analysis.
