One of the top vectors for security attacks is through email messages, and they range from malicious attachments to URL links designed to lure users to a specially prepared exploit or phishing website. As such, it makes sense for SMBs to implement some form of malware scanner at the email server to deflect as many attacks as possible.

The availability of cloud-based email security services means that SMBs can obtain such protection at a small monthly cost. Moreover, setting this up usually requires nothing more than a small configuration change with your domain’s MX record. GFI MailEssentials Online is one such service, while businesses using Google Apps can sign on for Google’s Postini Services.
