"For starters, an Office365 move can cause an uptick in unwanted spam and email, which then requires a cloud-based email protection service," he says. "The second [concern] is making sure that that environment is configured correctly."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Wagner discusses:
- Important considerations for email security;
- Challenges with Office365 and cloud-based environments;
- Future developments in email security and Zix's plans.
