By now, you know what inbox incursions are. It’s when API-based email security solutions allow a malicious email into the inbox before remediating.

This process can take, on average, three minutes and three seconds. But the user will click on a phishing link in an average of 82 seconds. Thus begins a race condition in which the user will likely win–meaning a major loss for your organization.

Should a user click on a phishing link that leads to a damaging and costly ransomware attack, the IT team that implemented this API-based tool that can only respond to emails will have to answer some tough questions from the C-Suite and board.

Question 1: How does this security solution work?

Answer: It responds to malicious emails after they reach the inbox

Question 2: So it lets all threats into the inbox?

Answer: Yes

As you can imagine, this won’t be a fun conversation. All it takes is just one click on a phishing link for damage to occur. With the average data breach costing $4.24 million per incident, that one click can bring an organization down. In fact, 60% of SMBs will go out of business within six months of being hacked.
