Understanding the gap zero-trust security can bridge
Most email security solutions scan emails for suspicious content (links, attachments, keywords, patterns) and apply historical/behavioral modeling and machine learning to detect bad actors. But they often fail to discern whether the senders themselves can be trusted.
Criminals are exploiting this gap to devastating effect by executing targeted, identity-based, and rapidly mutating phishing and BEC attacks.
9 out of 10 phishing emails impersonate the identity of the sender and 9 out of 10 phishing emails don’t contain malware.
