Small Business and the Importance of Simplified Email Security

Cisco Secure Email Cloud Mailbox was built with one guiding principle – simplicity. Of course, it’s easy for us to talk about the benefits of our cloud-native email security product and how easy it is to use. But don’t just take it from us! Every day, our customers are reaping the benefits of enhanced email security, which in turn increases productivity, profitability, and overall organizational functionality. After all, a secure business is a successful business.

In this post, we’ll explore how Ingram Micro, a global wholesale technology distributor that provides partners with cloud, mobility, technology lifecycle, supply chain and technology solutions, uses Cloud Mailbox to protect its Microsoft 365 environment.

Evolving Threats

As organizations conduct more and more of their business online, and move more toward cloud-based solutions to allow their workforce more flexibility, they may become more vulnerable to attackers looking for a way in. These attackers are becoming more sophisticated by the day, making it difficult for security teams to stay one step ahead.

Unfortunately, many businesses don’t realize just how vulnerable they are until their systems have been breached and dealing with the fallout from an attack can be extremely costly and time consuming.

Ease of Use, Peace of Mind

To thwart these more sophisticated attacks, security solutions need to be able to stay one step ahead. Small and medium-size businesses (SMBs), however, face a unique challenge in that most of their resources are dedicated to their core business, leaving little bandwidth to address security concerns.

In many cases, SMBs don’t even have full time, dedicated cybersecurity teams to help address these concerns, and that responsibility falls to someone who is juggling multiple other priorities. Companies in this situation need email security that can managed by non-technical users, yet still provides powerful detection and quick remediation capabilities.

So, when Ingram Micro was evaluating cloud email security solutions, it was really looking for a tool that could address the specific concerns of its SMB customers. With Cloud Mailbox, Ingram Micro found a solution that could be deployed in minutes, managed with ease and most importantly, provided top-notch protection from email security threats. As Senior Systems Engineer Thomas Mann notes, “I can’t think of another Cisco product that could be easier than this.”

By upgrading native Microsoft 365 security controls with Cloud Mailbox, Ingram Micro and its customers can focus on more business-critical functions instead of worrying about threats and the possibility of a breach that could cost them both time and money.
