New York – July 21, 2021 – Through a unique combination of innovative open-source methodology, expert ongoing system management and real-time cybersecurity business insights, Guardian Digital remedies the shortcomings of endpoint protection in securing business email against phishing, ransomware and the other malicious attacks that define the modern email threat landscape.
Where Endpoint Security Leaves Off
With one in five small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) experiencing an email-borne cyberattack daily, it has become clearly apparent that endpoint security solutions, which work at the client level on devices such as laptops, desktops and mobile phones, are limited in their ability to anticipate and block advanced and emerging threats like targeted spear phishing and ransomware which are the cause of over 90% of all cyberattacks and breaches. Critical limitations of endpoint protection include:
Endpoint security solutions cannot intercept traffic between an attacker and a target, leaving corporate netwards, cloud-based services and sensitive data vulnerable to compromise.
Endpoint protection takes a non-specific, retrospective approach to addressing email risk, leaving the responsibility of identifying and responding to these threats in the hands of the end-user. Given that antivirus products fail to detect 60% of attacks on average, human error is a significant risk that businesses relying solely on endpoint protection to secure their email face.
Endpoint security providers do not take businesses’ unique security needs into consideration and fail to provide the expert ongoing system monitoring, maintenance and support required to enhance IT security, close visibility gaps and ensure that solutions are kept up-to-date and secure.
Companies are increasingly acknowledging that they have too much to lose in a successful attack to rely solely on endpoint protection to secure their users and key assets, and that a comprehensive, proactive supplementary email security solution capable of anticipating and intercepting malicious attack attempts, safeguarding against human error and fortifying their email infrastructure as a whole is needed to make email safe for business in this dynamic modern threat environment.

Guardian Digital CEO Dave Wreski concludes:
“Email threats are constantly evolving, and cyber criminals are always thinking of new ways to evade traditional security defenses, deceive users and ultimately steal valuable information that can be monetized for personal gain. While businesses could once get away with relying on static, single-layered endpoint security solutions to fortify their email, those days are over.” Securing business email now requires innovative, dynamic protection that evolves with the attacks that challenge it to keep businesses ahead of the latest, most advanced threats.”
