Unintentional Misuse Top Email Risk

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- MessageGate, Inc., a leader in enterprise email controls for corporate risk management, today released market insights that identify the top drivers for rising enterprise email risk. The research findings name employee email misuse and inadequate enterprise email controls as the primary forces behind an increase in unnecessary enterprise risk vulnerability.

Enterprises continue to focus solely on education programs to change their employees’ casual attitude and behavior surrounding email,” said Brian Babineau, senior analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Unfortunately, there needs to be more done as the informal nature of email is ingrained within today’s workforce and can create unnecessary risk. Organizations must find ways to leverage technology to implement and consistently enforce enterprise email controls and usage policies to provide insurance against momentary judgment lapses and unintentional security breaches.”
