Paubox, the leader in HIPAA-compliant email, has announced Zero Trust Email, a new addition to the Paubox Email Suite. Zero Trust Email is the first and only solution of its type, designed to help healthcare institutions protect sensitive data and Protected Health Information (PHI) against cyber-attacks.
Because more than 93 percent of healthcare businesses have had at least one security breach in the last three years, a solution to counteract phishing assaults that infiltrate email security systems was critical. Attackers are creating accounts on GoDaddy, AWS, and Mailgun servers, which are all controlled by American infrastructure corporations. This enables these thieves to bypass spam and malware detection software used by the sector. Paubox responded by launching Zero Trust Email.
Hoala Greevy, Founder CEO of Paubox said “A core tenet of Zero Trust security is multi-factor authentication (MFA). While most of us associate MFA with text messages or authenticator apps, there is a broader definition. MFA simply means more than one piece of evidence is required to authenticate a user. As it relates to Zero Trust Email, we built a system whereby an additional piece of evidence from the sender’s mail server is required before it passes our Inbound Security checks. The additional evidence is determined by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm we created. In effect, we are incorporating email AI into the core of Paubox. Healthcare continues to be a primary target for cybersecurity attacks. This extra layer of verification is critical to keeping bad actors at bay.”
