Press Release: Guardian Digital Combats Holiday-Themed Phishing & Ransomware

Dec 15, 2021 -- Midland Park, N.J. - Guardian Digital protects businesses of all sizes against dangerous phishing and ransomware attacks exploiting the holiday season with a unique multi-layered email security solution that also includes expert support and management.

With a recent report from the CISA and the FBI warning that this holiday season will see an influx in ransomware attacks, Guardian Digital is providing the means to help businesses secure email against holiday-themed cyberattackers using a unique combination of advanced multi-layered technology and expert ongoing support.

Cybercriminals look for the most opportune and efficient time to stage an attack, and the holiday season gives them the advantage they need. Standard email security defenses, such as static native Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, antivirus software, and desktop protection are often not individually equipped to protect against these attacks. Guardian Digital protects businesses from holiday-themed attacks, such as ransomware and phishing scams, with depth in-depth technology that includes behavioral analysis and malicious URL and attachment defense, real-time updates, and 24/7 expert support

Email Risk Is Heightened During the Holiday Season

Previously, attackers have focused on profiting from the economic activity that goes hand in hand with the holidays. The annual focus has been most commonly associated with tactics like unsolicited emails and fraudulent advertising. Cyberthieves are quick to take advantage of this fast-paced and often uncertain time of year. SMS phishing has grown in popularity and has been shown to have a 98% open rate, especially at a time when many employees rely, in part, on their mobile devices for work. Should an attack be successful, businesses stand to suffer major losses both financially and with their reputation among clientele. 

Relying on native Microsoft 365 email protection alone is not enough to make email safe for business, as it lacks the necessary tools to safeguard users and key business assets against credential phishing, account takeovers, and other daily threats. Microsoft 365 users continue to report issues with spam and malware despite their investment in anti-malware, antispam, anti-phishing, and zero-day protection while employing other vendors for advanced protection. 

Endpoint security alone also does not meet businesses’ requirements today, as it is unaccompanied by the expert ongoing system monitoring, maintenance, and support required to keep solutions updated and secure key business assets. Guardian Digital has a free tool businesses can use to understand their risk and measures they can take to secure their email against phishing, ransomware, and other malicious threats.
