There’s no question that email attacks have been a favorite tool for criminals. Earlier this year the FBI reported that business email compromise attacks have caused exposed losses of more than $43 billion between June 2016 to December 2021. The FBI data is based on incidents reported in all 50 states and 177 countries, and it reveals a sharp increase in activity between July 2019 and December 2021.
Email security remains a challenge for many companies, including those who have migrated to cloud productivity suites like Microsoft 365. Jon Smallwood, IT Manager for Hunt Brothers Pizza, describes his experience with email attacks against his company’s Microsoft 365 environment:
“Native Microsoft 365 security could only do so much against the growing number of phishing and account takeover threats. … They kept coming faster, until it was spiraling out of control. User reports of bad emails were piling up, and responding to them was taking too much of my team’s time. Probably eight to ten hours a week.”
A firsthand story about email protection
Smallwood joins Barracuda Product Marketing Director Olesia Klevchuk to discuss how he uses Barracuda Email Protection to secure his Microsoft 365 deployment against a rising tide of sophisticated, multi-vector cyberthreats and why this is an important part of migrating to Microsoft 365.
