As email evolved from its early days, nobody could have predicted that there would one day be more than 3.8 Billion email users sending 270 Billion emails a day, and that email would become the number one source of cyberattacks. Business Email Compromise (BEC) and impersonation attacks are now one of the most insidious threats to organizations. Take a walk through the history of email with us to learn how email's "original sin" – its inherent lack of authentication – is being addressed with identity-based automated email authentication, including DMARC enforcement and other strategies to bring trust back to email.
