2021 Email Security Vulnerability Report

After the COVID-19 pandemic, we observed an increase in phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. Criminals target people who work remotely, misleading employees and customers. Not only are companies targeted, but end-users are also cheated into downloading Malware or Ransomware sent by criminals masked as legitimate entities.

Our 2021 Email Security Vulnerability report presents valuable insights about the critical components of email security systems and will help you assess your security status. With our years of experience in monitoring and investigating the email security landscape we analysed and assessed organizations’ email security vulnerabilities against evolving email attacks. We use a specialized email gap analysis tool, the Email Threat Simulator. Our report can guide businesses in creating the best email security practices for their organizations.

In 2020, cybercriminals threatened and attacked many businesses and government organizations around the world, using new and advanced methods. Simultaneously, cybersecurity service providers and email service providers did their best to secure networks and detect security gaps within their infrastructure. As the threats evolve, the defences increase to meet them. Our 2021 Email Security Vulnerability Report evaluates the success and failures of these defences.

Our report will also demonstrate which type of email attack vector was the most successful in bypassing the email protection technologies like anti-spam filters, Firewalls, Sandbox, and other tools.
