How can XDR strengthen your cyber security?

February 21, 2024

Email is an integral part of our daily communication. With countless emails being sent and received daily, it has become an essential fabric of day-to-day business activities. The widespread use of email also has made it particularly susceptible to security risks. It is important for users to recognize the significance of the information and attachments they share with colleagues, partners, and customers, considering the potential vulnerabilities associated with email communication. Have you considered Extended Detection & Response (XDR)?

Impact of email threats  

The FBI in its 2022 Internet Crime Report estimated that business email compromise (BEC) attacks cost businesses $2.7 billion in 2022, up from $2.4 billion in 2021. These attacks are becoming even more sophisticated, according to the report, evolving from simple hacking or spoofing of business/personal email accounts with wire payment requests to fraudulent bank accounts.  

Below, more statistics from a study show the impact email threats have had on organizations: 


How Extended Detection & Response (XDR) minimizes the chance of compromise 

Traditional secure email gateway (SEG) uses signature analysis and machine learning to identify and block malicious emails before they reach recipients’ inboxes, but cybercriminals are evolving tactics. XDR emerges as a comprehensive solution, integrating technologies like endpoint protection, network, cloud security and SIEM solutions. 

Benefits of XDR include, but are not limited to: 

  • Reduces alert fatigue 
  • Eliminates false positives 
  • Provides a consolidated view of digital assets security 
  • Automates remediation efforts for rapid response to threats 

With XDR integrated into a comprehensive email security effort, your organization can gain more visibility into potential vulnerabilities, respond faster to ongoing attacks, and reduce the risk of security breaches moving forward.
