Click to download pdf. No information required.

On October 7, 2021, Gartner released their latest ‘Market Guide for Email Security’, a research document derived from more than 1,400 Gartner client interactions between June 2020 and June 2021 that covers the ongoing evolution of the email security market.* 

According to Gartner: “Solutions that integrate directly into cloud email via an API, rather than as a gateway, ease evaluation and deployment and improve detection accuracy, while still taking advantage of the integration of the bulk of phishing protection with the core platform.”

The Market Guide Covers:

  • How native email security is replacing Secure Email Gateway (SEG) capabilities
  • Why the rise of business email compromise and targeted attacks requires specific protection
  • The rise of Integrated Cloud Email Security (ICES) as a market category
