Can cloud email be secure enough for enterprise?
blackdog 1 year ago
Gmail has millions of users, and most of the people I work with have a personal gmail account, with few if any of them experiencing significant security issues. One thing that we have not explored as a company is using cloud based email, mainly out of security concerns. The CIO pointed out that LA had refused to allow the LAPD to use Google's email services in Apps for Government because they found it did not meet FBI CJIS requirements. Frankly, I assume that the main attack vector for email accounts is passwords, which is a problem that doesn't change significantly whether you are using your own server or a cloud based account. I guess it could be vulnerable during data transmission from the cloud server to the user too. Is there significantly more risk to cloud based email? Would you be comfortable with it for business use?
