For an ordinary person, spam email is not very damaging, but rather a nuisance since one sees an unsolicited email in their Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com email mailbox. However, for the enterprise, the cost of spam is a whole different ball game. Spam, like legitimate emails, occupy storage space, employee's time, bandwidth utilization, virus infection, phishing launch pad, and other cybersecurity concerns.
Imagine an organization with 5,000 employees, each with their own corporate email accounts.
With the number of spam emails today, relying on the corporate employees to clean-up the spam emails by themselves cost the company a huge amount of money. Productivity is measured in currency, and being productive means doing actual profitable tasks for the company, manually deleting spam emails is not one of them.
For each 15-seconds of wasted time per spam email, an employee spends for manually deleting spam email, with an average of 5 junk-emails a day (conservative estimate) to delete. Multiply that number by 5,000, then if converted to hours, that is 104 hours every day wasted for an organization. How many productive activities the entire company's workforce can produce in that same 104 hours/day? That's a lot, especially if the numbers will be multiplied for an entire quarter, the same time gap between earnings calls of company board-of-directors to the firm's shareholders.
There is a template for spam emails: offers for genitalia enhancement drugs, escort services, sex for hire offers, dating services, and other black-market products/services. An accidental click may render the Windows PC infected by malware, at worst ransomware or a phishing webpage asking for personally identifiable information.
So what are the options open for the firm, to minimize if not completely eliminate the threats. Here are the options provided by Comodo Dome Anti Spam telegram, the mainstream anti spam telegram from Comodo, a trusted name in security and privacy:
