Don't Get Phished: Email Security for Small Business

Want a surefire way to protect your organization from the bad guys and maintain trust with new and existing clients? Avoid phishing attacks and ensure data confidentiality with our robust email security for small business.

How Well Is Your Data Defended Against Phishing Attacks?

Phishing attacks pose a significant threat to small businesses, often leading to devastating consequences if they are successful. These attacks involve cybercriminals impersonating legitimate entities, such as banks or trusted vendors, to trick employees into revealing sensitive information or downloading malicious software.

Don’t let cyberbullies steal your sensitive information. Falling victim to a phishing attack can result in financial losses, data breaches, damage to reputation and even legal consequences for your small business. The downtime required to address the aftermath of an attack can disrupt business operations and erode customer trust.

As Jedi warriors, we understand that it’s crucial for small businesses to implement robust security measures to defend against the Evil Empire. (Psst…that’s the bad guys.) From employee training and email filtering to regular security assessments, you can effectively defend your organization against phishing threats.


Here are the key advantages of email security for small business with BrightFlow:

  • Protection against phishing: Shield your organization from phishing attacks by filtering out suspicious emails and preventing employees from falling victim to fraudulent schemes.
  • Safeguarding sensitive data: By encrypting emails and implementing secure transmission protocols, your customer data and financial records remain confidential and protected from unauthorized access.
  • Enhanced compliance measures: Small businesses operating in regulated industries must adhere to data protection regulations and compliance standards. Email security solutions help maintain compliance by implementing measures such as encryption, data loss prevention and audit trails.
  • Risk mitigation: Our email security tools scan incoming emails for malware, viruses and ransomware, preventing malicious software from infiltrating your organization’s network and causing widespread damage.

Why Use BrightFlow for Email Security?

Don’t Do IT All On Your Own

Relying solely on your internal IT department (or one-person team) to implement email security for your small business can leave you vulnerable to a host of cyber threats, including phishing attacks, malware infections and data breaches. These can have severe consequences for your reputation, finances and overall business operations.

Thankfully, you can avoid the hefty price tag caused by downtime with a dedicated team of cybersecurity experts who can keep a watchful eye on your data around the clock. When your productivity, profitability and even reputation are in jeopardy, getting the right support fast is critical.

ThreatLocker is a zero-trust endpoint security tool giving companies control over what software can run, by whom, and what data can be accessed.

It keeps a full detailed audit of what applications are used and data accessed/transferred/deleted and by what users (signature tracking, etc.) If something unusual happens, such as a signature change, or a user opens an application that is out of their normal routine the administrator is alerted. This is a crucial tool in identifying malware threats, as well as helping organizations identify if users are accessing applications and/or data/ files they should not be.

ThreatLocker provides a solution that allows businesses to control the content that runs on their network. Unlike AntiVirus software ThreatLocker is not looking for known viruses or malware. ThreatLocker uses a complex set of rules to determine what can be executed on a network and stops anything that has not been approved before it can even execute.

SentinelOne integrates static artificial intelligence (AI) to provide real-time endpoint protection and reduce false positives that derail investigations or make threat detection a capital-intensive process. This will replace Webroot in your current environment.
