About Cloud E-Mail Security
E-mail security refers to the cumulative measures taken by organizations for securing access to e-mail accounts. Different techniques are used by organizations to detect, monitor, report, and counter threats to e-mail accounts. These techniques include spam filters, digital signing of e-mail messages, strong passwords, and desktop-based anti-virus or anti-spam applications. They help organizations secure e-mail accounts from sophisticated threats and hackers. This helps in maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of the message by protecting sensitive data.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cloud E-mail Security Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Cloud E-mail Security Market: Cisco Systems, Intel (McAfee), Raytheon (Websense), Symantec, and TrendMicro.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AppRiver, Apptix, Avira, Barracuda Networks, Dell SonicWALL, Entrust, Mimecast, Panda security, Proofpoint, and Watchguard.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “An important market trend to be aware of is the adoption of hybrid solutions by enterprises. In a hybrid solution, critical data can be maintained and handled in the internal system and centralized data can be shared and managed via cloud. Owing to the increasing volumes of business data and growing flexibility needs, organizations in sectors such as defense and finance are adopting hybrid services for data storage and sharing.”
According to the report, a key driver for market growth is the rising number of instances of cloud service-specific attacks. Another reason for adopting cloud security solutions is the sudden increase in instances of attacks on the public and private cloud. One of the primary reasons for such attacks is the growing usage of cloud-based e-mail services and the users' willingness to reveal personal information. The archived e-mails that are stored on the cloud are a major target for attackers. This compromises the users’ information, thereby resulting in identity theft and access to confidential e-mails.
Further, the report states that inconsistency in network connections could result in insufficient security and hamper market growth.
