This executive brief explores the cybersecurity levels of Office 365 and G-Suite email services. While convenient and ubiquitous to businesses and organizations worldwide, these services are a prime vector for cyberattacks that bypass native defense and Security Email Gateways (SEGs). This brief examines security gaps and requirements necessary to secure cloud-based email against modern, sophisticated cyberthreats. The most important conclusion is that native cloud security is not enough and that a layered approach - such as SonicWall's Cloud App Security (CAS) - is vital to closing the security gaps.
Mobility, cloud apps and emerging threats demand more from today’s next-gen firewall. This brief examines critical network security needs for today’s school networks and explores best practices for selecting an effective next-generation firewall platform.
