Press Release: Guardian Digital Combats Coronavirus-Related Threats to Business Email with Open-Source Innovation

Jun 15, 2020 -- Midland Park, N.J. - Guardian Digital, Inc., is uniquely leveraging collaborative open-source methodology to safeguard cloud email users from emerging COVID-related threats involving malicious URLs and attachments. The company today announced that in May of 2020, its business email security solution - EnGarde Cloud Email Security - identified more phishing emails than in any month prior since the company’s inception in 1999.


Scammers are exploiting the fear and uncertainty around the coronavirus crisis to  funnel their ill-gotten gains into the bank account of a predatory impersonator at a time when many of us are at our most vulnerable. Guardian Digital has seen an increase in charity fraud, malicious attachments relating to economic stimulus relief, and tens of thousands of malicious domains designed to lure victims, seeking private information.

Guardian Digital pioneers business email security solutions using the innovative open-source development model to access critical additional resources from a worldwide community to combat these advanced, targeted threats - exceeding the protection of everyday cloud providers like Microsoft and Google. Now more than ever, a more sophisticated approach to securing business email is needed to defend against phishing scams.
